VIRTUAL – CONSTANTINOPLE: DIMITRIE CANTEMIR – THE COMPOSER PRINCE
May 20 @ 12:00 am$35
Early Music Seattle presents
Town Hall Seattle
WATCH UNTIL MAY 20
Ensemble Constantinople performs the music of Dimitrie Cantemir (1673-1723), a Moldavian prince, scholar, composer, and diplomat. A fascinating historical figure, Cantemir’s compositions are considered part of the Ottoman music repertoire. More influential though are the over 350 instrumental works that he preserved in his book, Edvar-i Musiki, using his own innovative notation system, which remains as one of the most important collections of 16th and 17th century Ottoman and Middle Eastern music.
