Early Music Foundation has launched a new series of performance videos by ensemble members on our YouTube channel, supplemented by enlightening discussions by the artists. Here are the most recent; you can find a list of all our video and audio features in our latest newsletter.
Wind instrumentalist Wayne Hankin provides informative background and commentary to accompany four entertaining and colorful performances of medieval music on such historic instruments as hornpipes, vessel flutes, bagpipes and double pipes.
Keyboardist Dongsok Shin introduces the lautenwerck, also known as a lute-harpsichord, very likely the instrument for which J.S. Bach composed most of the works we have come to know as lute music. He follows his remarks with a performance of Bach's Prelude, Fugue and Allegro in E-Flat, BWV 998.
Cellist and gambist Sarah Abigael Stone curates and comments upon a series of split-screen videos of Bach Chorales in which she plays all the parts on various cellos, gambas and assorted percussion instruments.
