Video Albums > New Mixed Videos > Popular music in Renaissance Italy (1500-1525) - EARLY MUSIC MIDI 2018 First video Previous video Next video Last video
The period between 1480-1520 was the height of the Italian Renaissance marked by the larger-than-life figures of Leonardo da Vinci, Rafaello Sanzio and Donatello in the art world as well as Josquin des Prez and Heinrich Isaac in the musical realm. Less recognized in the rest of Europe were native born Italians, Marchetto Cara and Bartolomeo Tromboncino among others. These local masters flourished at the court of Isabella d'Este of Ferrara, Marchesa of Mantua, who loomed large over the musical pantheon as la patronesse extraordinaire. Her palaces were adorned with patterns of musical notes on the ceilings and stylized wood inlays of instruments on the walls.

This video celebrates the music and art from that glorious era in Italian history. Below are 15 musical selections and artworks from that prolific age. As always, I extensively edited raw MIDI files downloaded from various websites. To skip to a different piece in the soundtrack, click on the time stamp indicated next to the song title.
