“Sounds from Shylock's Venice” conjures the soundscape of a day in the life of Shylock, in and out of the Jewish quarter, in the vibrant, colorful world that was Renaissance Venice. The music is a combination of poems by Jewish authors that the ensemble has set to music, liturgical works, and the music that all Venetians, Jews or not, would have enjoyed while celebrating; combined with texts of Venice Senate declarations, the Inquisition records, and selections from Leon Modena's autobiography. Based in Geneva and Milan, Lucidarium specializes in bringing little-known repertoires from the Renaissance and Middle Ages back to life in an entertaining, engaging way designed for a 21st century public. This unique combination of cutting-edge research and high-energy, spontaneous performance-style has earned them kudos from the international press.
