"The Amulet of the Emporer" - The Music at the court of Maximilian I

Music of the early Renaissance
The program presents the musical taste of the early Renaissance, which accompanied the growing Maximilian I from childhood on. The Burgundian court orchestra of Charles the Bold was considered to be the most famous in Europe and Maximilian should cherish and love her during the happy years of marriage with Mary of Burgundy. The sources for the repertoire Maximilianischer Hofkapelle / n have almost been lost. However, the Liber Selectarum Cantionum, which was printed in Augsburg in 1520 with the help of Ludwig Senfl as editor, offers a good cross section. The manuscripts 3155 from Munich, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, and the so-called Codex Pernner from Regensburg also reflect the circulating repertoire of the time in the imperial environment.
