Improvisation on La Spagna
This video consists of an extract from the concert given by More Hispano, in which explanations were combined with musical improvisation. The practice of improvising Renaissance music, which is explained in numerous treatises and in other period sources, is very rare in modern concerts. In this performance, More Hispano reproduce these historical practices based on the variation of the rhythmic parametres of a given melodic pattern (in this case, the La Spagna melody).
