"The frottola repertoire, simple in appearance only, is an inexhaustible source of artistic and conceptual inspiration, which never ceases to surprise. The more one delves into its endless compositional and literary variety, the more one is bewitched by its enormous potential, both musical and poetic." - VivaBiancaLuna Biffi
The three acts of this concert describe different moments of the day (sunset, night and morning) which are metaphors for falling in love, the torment of love, and the victory of love over troubles. The prologue and epilogue provide the voice of cynical reality: life is short and love is uncertain.
VivaBiancaLuna Biffi began her musical education on the cello in Bergamo, and went on to study mediaeval fiddle, renaissance gamba and singing at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Unique in the world of medieval music as both an instrumentalist and singer, she has worked with some of the most important early music ensembles, including Alla Francesca (France), Les Flamboyants (Germany) and Hespèrion XXI - Capella Reial de Catalunya (Spain). She has performed across Europe, and also in Russia, the Middle East, and North and South America, and has released eight CDs.
