Once again, René Clemencic uncovers a jewel from the Middle Ages: a poetic epic by Hadamar von Laber entitled “The Hunt”, one of the most beautiful and colorful allegories of courtly love from the 14th century. Clemencic uses melodies
that may very well come down to us from Wolfram von Eschenbach. This epic “Minnesang” is embedded within a framework of love songs and dances likewise from medieval times. Clemencic has released over 100 records and CDs, both as a soloist and conductor. Despite all his musicological knowledge and commitment, the leader of the Clemencic Consort always values spirited authenticity and consciously avoids schoolmasterly finger-wagging.
