voorblad cdDUTCH!
Ars Nova songs in Dutch

A small, but precious collection of late medieval songs in Dutch; a collector’s item released in a limited edition, only available at Fortuna.


Fortuna Cisalpina! Just as Dutch painters in the Golden Age were attracted by the Italian light and went to work in Rome, many composers from the Low Countries also made their way over the Alps in search of inspiration. This Italian dream resulted in the creation of brilliant music by two such pioneers, Johannes Ciconia and Guillaume Dufay.  In order to illustrate their borderless talents, Fortuna follows Ciconia and Dufay on this recording on their journey through the Flemish and Italian musical landscape of the late medieval times:  Early Music in Context.

Johannes Ciconia & Guillame Dufay: Chansons  (Super Audio CD) is released by Aliud Records.
