Visiting Artist Concert: The Boston Camerata, Anne Azéma, artistic director.  Of All the Flowers; Song of the Middle Ages.  Machaut, Landini, da Bologna, and others, performed by Camerata's virtuoso soloists and instrumentalists.  Delving deep into the early music repertory, the esteemed Boston Camerata – celebrating its 60th season – enlivens an important chapter of cultural history: the competing centers of France and Italy in the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. Boston Camerata will work in collaboration with MIT musicologist and programmer Michael Cuthbert, whose open-source software music21 allows scholars to find patterns and “fill in the gaps” among pieces of music from vast data sets. Their performances at MIT will include the first performance in over six hundred years of newly reconstructed works. 8pm, Walker Memorial Building, 142 Memorial Drive, Cambridge.  Admission: $20, students, seniors and alumni: $10, MIT Students, Faculty and Staff: Free.
