Espris d'amours is a CD representing the music from around 1430, when Burgundy was thriving, politically and economically as well as culturally.
The recording acts as a kind of "missing" link between fourteenth and sixteenth-century music. This music is rarely performed and was only sporadically recorded before Capilla Flamenca's recording on "Espris d'amours".
At the core of the programme are two musicians, immortalized next to each other in a famous miniature painting; Guillaume Du Fay and Gilles Binchois. Under the influence of English music, both composers took care of a development in music such that even in its time - around 1430-, it was experienced as a 'new' art.
The image is the first true portrait of musicians in history and thus emphasizes the importance of both composers. They both practiced all genres of music, secular and religious, but Binchois really was the master of courtly song in the rooms of the princes. Especially in the vicinity of the court of Phillips the Good, songs composed to French lyrics were blooming. Du Fay, then, composed his whole life an enormous amount of motets and masses and thus, his inspiraton influenced the creation of music throughout the fifteenth century.
The fifteenth century was thus a period in European music in which an important development took place and at the same time it meant the golden age of Flemish miniature painting.
This cd recording was initiated by the KBR (the Royal Library of Belgium in Brussels), to accompany an exhibition about Flemish miniature painting.
For the first time the Royal Library of Belgium (KBR) and the Bibliothèque nationale de France have brought their collections together. They joined forces to turn the golden age of Flemish miniature painting in broad daylight.
A double exhibition of international stature is organised, starting in Brussels (Mont des Arts)) from September to December 2011 and repeated in Paris from March until June 2012. In total as many as 140 of the most prestigious illuminated manuscripts will be shown to the public. Some have not been on display for over 50 years, others are unknown.
