Ross Duffin, conductor

Ross Duffin is the Artistic Director of Quire Cleveland, and he spoke with Angela Mitchell at intermission of Cleveland Ovations. The program was called "The Flower of Flanders: Masterpieces of Renaissance Polyphony."  These composers from Flanders dominated music in the same way that Italians dominated the visual arts. Giants like Leonardo, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, and Tintoretto had their counterparts in DuFay, Josquin, Willært, and Lassus, and a remarkable number of other sublimely talented composers. They were trained in the choir schools of the North, and often drawn to the brilliant courts of Renaissance Italy. Listen to the entire concert here
