“ .. . The expression musica ficta first appeared in theoretical treatises dating back to the 13thcentury and defined the performance rules related to accidental chromaticism in modal composition. However, these rules are nowhere to be found on the scores. It is up to the musician to apply them where necessary. In practice, specialists do not always agree, and so all that remains is choosing the performer, his personality. Who is right? Does the question really require an answer? It would seem that the question of what moves us or appeals to us is far more interesting and compelling.
Musica Ficta translates into three or four releases per year, with performers being chosen for their commitment and musical qualities for original artistic projects both in terms of the repertoire and its approach.
The collection presents an interpretation of early music within our contemporary context.
