On the Trails of the Pied Piper concert
October 14, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Norbert Rodenkirchen, a specialist in medieval flute music, has long been fascinated by the figure of the Pied Piper and was inspired to embark on a search for musical sources with close regional and temporal connections. He struck lucky with the melodies of Prince Wizlaw III of Ruegen and his teacher, the so-called “Unghelarte” [“the Untaught”] and other tunes of the German minnesinger tradition of the late 13th-century, augmented by ancient Slavonic dance fragments from Northern Poland.
On the basis of his extensive experience in medieval improvisation, Norbert Rodenkirchen has utilized these musical models to weave a series of enchanting melodies in the style of medieval traveling musicians which could quite conceivably have been played by the Pied Piper himself.
Wellesley College Emeritus Faculty Lawrence Rosenwald will join Norbert Rodenkirchen as the orator for the program at Houghton Chapel on Wellesley College’s campus on Saturday, Oct. 14 at 7:30pm.
This event is free and open to the public. Performance supported by The Florence Jeup Ford ’22 and Virginia Ford ’48 Artists-in-Residence Endowment Fund. For accessibility and disability resources, please contact accessibility@
