Historical violin bands

One of the first quote of Violin bands comes from Venice where confraternities hired permanent groups of violin players. The Scuola of San Rocco was the first one to definitely replace, in 1531, the early instruments (viol, harp and lute) by "nuovi Sonadori", new violin players. From 1510 to the end of the 17th century, each town in the North of Italy had at least one violin band, invited to perform during receptions, balls, aristocrat entertainment, political negotiations, etc. The repertoire of violin consorts included vocal pieces with parts initially dedicated to singers, each initial vocal range distributed among the different violin sizes according to each range.

This concert is co-organised by professor, Alain Gervreau.
