Medieval Love Songs from Asteria at Brooklyn Public Library

Asteria (Sylvia Rhyne, soprano, and Eric Redlinger, tenor and lute) seeks to bring a narrative quality and emotional immediacy to their late-medieval vocal and instrumental music. Their historically informed settings are based on extensive archival research into original sources in Paris, The Hague, and Basel, Switzerland.

They will present “Music for a Rash Prince – medieval love songs from the court of Charles the Bold” on December 5th at the Dweck Center for Contemporary Culture, Brooklyn Public Library, main branch, Flatbush Avenue and Eastern Parkway on Grand Army Plaza; nearest subway: 2,3 or 4 train to either the Grand Army Plaza station or to the Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum station.

This concert is given in honor of Early Music America‘s 25th Anniversary.
