Prehistoy, Antiquity and Middle Ages

Who would not know the cliché of wine, women and song in ancient Rome? Nero playing the lyre, menads beating drums in rapture, or Pan with his flute - our imagination of Antiquity is full of music. We bring it to new life and, moreover, reveal the secrets behind these clichés: were there musical notes written? Was the lyre plucked or strummed? Did they really play double flutes? Did the legionaires march to the sound of drums?
This and more you will listen to in our programs.
