Strada

For many years now, Strada has been exploring Mediterranean music which continues to draw from medieval tradition. Strada’s rendition of the few scores that have been handed down to us from the Middle Ages, which they perform in that most excellent of medieval forums, «nella strada», the street, makes their music alive and colourful, and much like the music which rang through southern Europe from the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries. The selection chosen for this recording were performed by Strada during the first Médiévales de Québec festival in 1993 — music that the washerwoman and the court jester once dance to, music that contributed to the magical atmosphere of the carnival. Every other years, for five days in mid-August, an unforgettable celebration of the Renaissance and the Middle Ages takes place against the charming backdrop of the walled city of Old Québec, with its unique architecture, history and European atmosphere.
