Event Description


America’s premiere Renaissance wind ensemble makes its triumphant return to Pittsburgh with a story of musical immigration. An Italian and likely Jewish family of wind players moves to England during the reign of Henry VIII, pushing instrumental music into a new frontier. The wind players of Piffaro look at one of the most potent examples of musical immigration in 16th-century Europe—the story of the Bassano family.
