Love, in all his forms, has always been the absolute protagonist of music and poetry, and so it is for Italian Renaissance. In the refined and courtly style of madrigals, Love takes the godlike form of Cupid, and here the child tyrant is often represented as an invincible spirit that dominates the will of harmless mortals, pushing them to move constantly towards the desired object in an endless tournament; a jousting among opposite affetti, such as hope and disappointment, enthusiasm and dejection, joy and sorrow.

But in other musical genres of more rustic origins, such as the villanella, villotta and canzonetta, Love is the protagonist of a rather realistic and ironic representation of everyday life. In his most carnal and earthly appearance – that is the erotic desire – Love directly affects social relationships and conventions, and it has even the power to ridicule his victims or expose them to all sorts of hilarious misfortunes.

Nevertheless Love remains the source of the sweetest things that life can offer, and his ultimately positive nature is also highly celebrated and represented in Renaissance music, both in madrigals and other secular works. This program is dedicated to the contradictory depiction of Love and desire, so richly and imaginatively explored in the Italian Renaissance music, where even animals are metaphorically represented as either servants or victims of Love’s dominance.

PassiSparsi ensemble:
Martha Rook, soprano
Elisabetta Vuocolo, contralto
Neri Landi, tenore
Lorenzo Tosi, basso

PassiSparsi ensemble was created in August 2019 by four young singers, Martha Rook, Cora Mariani, Neri Landi, and Lorenzo Tosi, all studying at the Conservatoire L. Cherubini in Florence. Although they come from different academic backgrounds, they all have experience as soloists and madrigalists in Renaissance-Baroque repertoire, and decide to join together to explore the Renaissance polyphonic repertoire. Since 2020 the ensemble collaborated with contralto Elisabetta Vuocolo.





Audience is required to wear respirators or medicine masks during the concert. Concert is free.

The event is organized by the project Historic Road: Raudondvaris-Bauska (LLI-498), which seeks to attract more tourists to Kaunas district and Bauska regions during the cold season by creating new artistic and cultural activities. This is already the fifth concert from the early music concert series organized by Bauska Castle Museum in cooperation with Raudondvaris Manor. Concerts take place in both project partners venues and are for free.
