Suzie LeBlanc joins La Nef under the direction of Alexander Weimann to recreate Renaissance Music as it was heard and presented in Rome at the Barberini’ Palace . The Barberinis surrounded themselves with illustrious thinkers, musicians, artists, and poets, and formed an extended papal family which shared artworks, silver and servants. They mounted lavish theatrical productions, outdoor pageants, presented private music, commissioned art works, and utilized architects. They maintained separate houses but employed many of the same composers, performers, instruments, and performing spaces which linked them all to a common intellectual and artistic program.
