In Search of the Lost Voice - The Reconstruction of Incomplete Polyphonic Masterpieces

April 26th-30th 2021

Many compositions from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries survive in an incomplete state. It was standard practice to publish each part in a separate partbook, often the size of a slender pamphlet. Not surprisingly, some of them have disappeared, leaving a large repertory of compositions that are missing one or more voices. Usually these compositions are not performed in concert or recorded, and sometimes they are not even transcribed or studied. If we were able to visualize them, we could get to know better also the compositions that have come to us complete.
