René Zosso, who sings, "hurdy-gurdies" and loves the flavor of words, is an exceptional and invaluable teacher/performer. His knowledge of French-language traditional songs and of medieval music makes him an undisputed specialist of modes.
A pioneer in the revival of this music, René Zosso (who has also experimented with electroacoustic music) plays and sings as a soloist, in a duo with Anne Osnowycz, and also performs with the René Clemencic ensemble. Jordi Savall has invited him to perform as a narrator.
This four-hour DVD presents his workshop-lecture and summarizes, to the sound of his hurdy-gurdy drones, the essentials of his thinking and analysis.
This is an indispensable document for anyone who wishes to better understand monodic modal music and serves as a guide to this underrecognized musical system. Many sung examples and several bonuses facilitate the viewer's comprehension.
