In the early C17th, Europe's culture was going though extreme changes... The previously unchallenged leadership of the Catholic Church is put to question, new scientific discoveries disprove the previously accepted view of the world and universe, and political conflicts ravage the whole of Europe.
In music, these changes are reflected in new ways of thinking, the insecurity of the times in a stark change in the style. The rules of polyphony, over the centuries steadily rising to a high art, are consciously broken; the use of text and the declamatory use of rhythm give music now a subjective character - the beauty and expressivity of dissonances and virtuosity is discovered. Excess rules the upper class and the pinnacle of the new art is the opera.
Originating in Italy, the fundaments of this new style expand very quickly to the rest of Europe. The music in our program "Torna, deh, torna" covers various different styles of music in the early 17 th; music written in a more traditional way, folk music and also compositions stretching the border of good taste.
