"This workshop will focus on the two composers working for Maximilian I, Heinrich Isaac and Ludvig Senfl. Born in the Netherlands around 1450, Isaac spent many years in Florence at the court of Lorenzo the Magnificent until the rise of Savonarola caused him, in 1497, to move to Vienna where he became court composer to Maximilian. Swiss born Senfl joined the Hofkapelle as boy chorister and studied under Isaac, taking over his role upon Isaac’s death. ...
