Musicologist Sofie Taes (AMUZ, Alamire Foundation, KU Leuven) unravels the music history of the MARE ADRIATICO. Throughout the centuries the Adriatic Sea saw the emergence of different political powers. The area was steeped in diverse cultures, becoming a melting pot of artistic and musical traditions.

You will discover that during this free theme lecture, in the process casting a glance on the historical context of the different repertories that will be dealt with during the festival programme of Laus Polyphoniae 2012.
