The warmhearted and
spirited concert of Romantic Manors
in beautiful manors brings together the Time of the Spirits and Fathers Day.
Futhermore, in the Time of the Spirits we commemorate many forefathers and it
is mostly family ensemble on stage. The renown early music ensemble RONDELLUS
will perform on 1 November in Alatskivi Castle and on 2 November in Kōltsu
Manor. The concerts begin with animated Medieval music, which has been
dedicated to various saints: Virgin Mary, St Nicholas, St Barbara, and others.
The thoughts and doings of saints are accompanied by some sort of special
light, a shimmer of holiness. For their exceptional greatness they have
considered among heavenly creatures, so they can protect their wards. Also,
love songs, drinking songs and dances from the Renaissance period, the true pop
music of this era will be performed. Despite the lack of fast means of
communication and transport, popular musical pieces of this era expanded over
state borders. Also, those pieces can be found in numerous printed collections
and manuscripts over the continent. Although weekly rankings were not compiled,
those sources contain true hit pieces that were sung and played all over
Europe, maybe also in Estonian region.
Maria and Robert Staak,
the establishers of Rondellus, perform with their son Johannes Christopher
Staak and other young musicians, Anna-Liisa Eller and Johanna-Maria Jaama. In
addition to vocals, the musicians use many exciting instruments from the
ancient times: lute, hurdy gurdies, drums, bagbipe, fiddles, psalterium and recorders.
In 2003 the CD Sabbatum by Rondellus earned the Estonian Music Award for best
classical record, it also aroused international attention.
Enjoy the style and
elegance of former times, performed by excellant musicians!
