Program Notes

Very little is known about Tielman Susato before he began his career as a calligrapher in Antwerp around 1530. He soon added town musician to his list of jobs and was proficient on many instruments including trumpet, sackbut (an early form of the trombone), crumhorn, flute, and recorder. From 1543 until his death, he worked as a publisher and created the first music press in the Netherlands. Susato actively tried to promote Flemish composers and called on them to publish their works. Susato also was a prolific composer of instrumental music and was best known for his collection of dance pieces published in Danserye. Susato believed the dances should be pleasing and played on instruments of all kinds. Three Susato Dances include three rondes, arranged by Tohru Minakuchi, from the 1551 Danserye collection.
