The Spinacino Consort presents a concert of the finest music from Renaissance Italy, exploring the influence of Isabella d’Este, 'La Prima Donna del Mondo'. Born in Ferrara to the d’Este dynasty, Isabella enjoyed music lessons from some of the finest Franco-Flemish composers. However, it was her passion for the native Italian forms of sung improvised poetry that led to her patronage of Italian artists and the development of frottola. This musical melting pot created some of the most exciting and beautiful music ever composed.
