1.500 Surround Sound
Before 5.1 surround sound, there was stereo. Long before both, there was the original surround sound: the grand polychoral style of the 1500s. Les Canards Chantants invites the listener to occupy the acoustical architecture of lavish works by Victoria, Lassus, Gabrieli and more, in a program that exploits the drama of sound and space.
Highlights from the program include:
Tomás Luis de Victoria – Salve Regina
[Nicolas Gombert] – Lugebat David
Giovanni Gabrieli – Sonata pian e forte
Jean Mouton – Nesciens mater
Orlande de Lassus – O la, o che bon eccho!
