A Tribute to John Dowland
“As long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by the polyphonic music of the Renaissance, with the interweaving voices that seemingly float on forever, unimpeded by bar lines,” says Christian Muthspiel. 405 years after the birth of John Dowland, he embarks on a journey to explore how to translate the sound of Elizabethan England into the language of the jazz. This way, new pieces develop from the nucleus of the musical cycle “Lachrimae, or Seaven Teares” and serve as a springboard for the jazz band in a chamber music formation to come up with diverse improvisations.
