Vicente Parrilla is currently a doctoral 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 ms. Paris, BnF, Esp. 219, allegedly written by Vicente Lusitano ca. 1550, his thesis will focus on how to revive the Renaissance practice of improvised counterpoint, to bring the results of his research to the concert hall and modern audiences at the highest possible artistic level.
It would be great to collect here, for easy reference, any relevant information about current developments on historical improvisation: articles, theses, media files. Please let me know if you’d like to make a contribution to this site.
