In the first half of the 15th century, the Medici family rose to prominence in Florence, Italy, ushering in a cultural moment in which art and Humanism thrived. Their influence is considered an important precursor to the Italian Renaissance. The Medici’s storied family history—their rise, fall, and return to prominence—is being traced in the Collegium Workshop in Trionfo d’Amore at the University of Southern California. Using music as a lens, Adam Gilbert will lead attendees through the history with carnival songs, madrigals, masses, and motets of musical masters like Henricus Isaac and Johannes Ghiselin.
