With “Ars Novissisima”, Ictus and Club Mediéval create a dialogue between the 14th and 21st centuries with the aid of poetic associations. Paolo da Firenze is a notable figure from the end of the 14th century. Anchored in the ideals of courtly love, his music has participated in the mutation of western sensitivity that came about in this era, thus heralding the arrival of the Renaissance. To this will respond, amongst others, a creation by Michaël Liberg; the artist, who is as difficult to categorise as he is exciting, brings together the two ensembles around a new work inspired by the hypnotic loops of Robert Fripp, guitarist of the famous progressive rock group King Crimson.
