Early Music Now (EMN 18-30)

Music at the court of Emperor Maximilian I

Maximilian I of Austria employed some of the finest artists and musicians of his time to glorify his reign and create a permanent legacy. He was known for wanting music in his environment constantly,

even when he was alone. We'll hear from the composers who served him, like Isaac and Senfl, plus some of the music that shaped his young adulthood at the Burgundian court.
