In the courts of the 15th century, music was a constant companion. The chanson was a daily pleasure, a vehicle for poetry and passion, a remedy for pain and sublimated the richness of amorous relationships. The chanson was perhaps the musical form in which Dufay, despite being a man of the Church, best expressed his immense talent. He was seen as an absolute master among his peers, owing to the perfection of his writing and it's intense expressiveness, and he enriched the history of music with a masterly oeuvre that went far beyond the stylistic boundaries of the time. His 80 chansons show great diversity and allow us to appreciate the constant evolution of the aesthetic of the genre. The Ensemble Gilles Binchois present a program of 2 selections in which courtly love finds it's most beautiful expression and refinement.
