The project Stile Moderno creates a bridge between seventeenth-century music and traditional melodies from Balkan.
The name of the project is inspired by a music style that encaptures innovation and experimentation. It appears in Europe at the turn of the seventeenth-century.
The seek for dissonance and different sound colors, as well as new instrumental techniques, will be heard in music by Pandolfi Mealli and Georg Muffat.
The program includes a rarely heard Croatian seventeenth-century composer Vinko Jelić, and a sonata by female composer Isabella Leonarda.
Through on-stage improvisation, a link will be drawn between the traditional Italian renaissance dances and folkloric music of Balkan, including known melodies from Macedonia and Bosnia, as
well as the Romani tunes.
