La Barriera

La Barriera  [4'08]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Cesare Negri’s dance manual Le Gratie d’Amore presents its tunes (mostly very simple) in both staff notation and lute tablature, so that all kinds of instruments could provide music for the dancers. In addition to a large number of short dances and balletti, there are a few large-scale pieces with a developed musical structure. La Barriera is a choreographed tournament, culminating in a mock battle.
