On the trail of early music - music at the time of Erasmus of Rotterdam in Basel

Guidance
HMB
Basel was a "melting pot" in the 16th century: as an important trading hub, the site of a council, a university town, but also a city with numerous printing works and paper mills, it attracted scholars and thinkers from far and wide. Basel's musical life was not unaffected by this either, as evidenced by the large number of surviving sources containing sheet music, treatises and treatises on music. Influential Basel citizens such as Felix Platter, Bonifacius Amerbach and Andreas Ryff collected music and instruments. The instruments mentioned in these sources, as well as the large-format painting "Castalius der Brunn", can be admired on this excursion into the Renaissance.
