For this recording, the renowned early music expert Marc Lewon and his Ensemble Leones have put together a program that does justice to Oswald von Wolkenstein's importance as a poet and musician, presenting not only rarely heard pieces but also a number of first recordings: from multilingual, 'Macaronian' songs to travel descriptions and true jewels of sound. The high-profiled Ensemble of Early Music specialists founded by director Marc Lewon in 2008, Ensemble Leones, is dedicated to presenting Medieval and Renaissance music. The ensemble’s work is characterized by performances that take into account historical sources to create subtle reconstructions and stylistically informed arrangements, which flow into their inspired interpretations.
