About the editor

Vicente Parrilla is a PhD candidate at KU Leuven / LUCA Faculty of the Arts and docARTES, a doctoral programme for performers and composers hosted by Orpheus Instituut (Ghent). Based on a close study of Vicente Lusitano’s ms. Paris, BnF, Esp. 219 (ca. 1550), his research will focus on how to revive the Renaissance practice of improvised counterpoint with the aim of bringing the results to the concert hall and modern audiences at the highest possible artistic level.

I aim to collect here, for easy reference, as much relevant information as possible about current developments on historical improvisation, with special emphasis on Renaissance counterpoint: articles, theses, media files. In case you’d like to make a contribution to this site, please let me know.
