Dances from the Chigi Manuscripts

In 2004, a new collection of dances from the Chigi manuscripts, now held in the Vatican libraries, were brought to light. Transcriptions of these dances, including a brief analysis, were published by Fabio Carboni, Barbara Sparti and Agostino Ziino, in Music Observed. This class will present what we know about this collection, how the dances therein fit into the Sixteenth century Italian dance genre, and what has to be done to reconstruct these dances today.

Other classes by the teacher(s) listed above are highlighted yellow below.
