For its first concert of 2017, TENET presents Guillaume de Machaut, the second of three concerts this season exploring the music of French medieval composer Guillaume de Machaut and his contemporaries. Curated by guest music director Scott Metcalfe, Guillaume de Machaut features works written for one of Machaut’s most important muses and patrons, Bonne of Luxembourg.

Machaut was the 14th century’s indisputable master of both music and poetry. He is credited with inventing the genre of polyphonic song that would influence many generations to come. His poetry was a great inspiration to the younger generation, notably Geoffrey Chaucer. He also produced numerous comprehensive and elaborate manuscripts of his works, an unprecedented undertaking at the time.
