Alkemie and Friends

Alkemie’s spirited performances of medieval music are grounded in historical performance practice and fed by our love of experimentation.

This season Alkemie launches “Alkemie & Friends” – a series of informal, musically experimental, and multi-sensory concerts in non-traditional NYC concert settings. “Alkemie & Friends” is a forum for the ensemble to create programs that take advantage of the sonic possibilities that emerge when we collaborate with other experts in adjacent musical fields. Venues are selected in part for their ability to introduce elements that transform the sensory space in divergent ways.

​Musicivic is pleased to be one of these alternative settings!

Artists (bios at the link)

Program

The “Cantigas de Amigo” by Martim Codax (13th century poet-composer) are 7 short pieces that comprise one poetic song cycle.

The music is performed from our own edition and the arrangements are our own.

A picture of the manuscript that includes all the extant music for these songs is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Codax#/media/File:Martim_Codax_Cantigas_de_Amigo.jpg)
