Classical, Early Music
Chateau de Germolles, France
Asteria (Sylvia Rhyne, soprano, and Eric Redlinger, lute) burst onto the early music scene as the first winners of Early Music America's exciting new competition for Medieval and Renaissance music in 2004. Since then, they have spanned the globe, introducing audiences around the world to the intimate beauty of medieval love songs. Their research into ancient Burgundian manuscripts in France has resulted in three critically acclaimed albums of 15th century chansons available through www.magnatune.com and www.itunes.com. They are also available on Asteria's own website, complete with program notes, free song downloads and videos: www.asteriamusica.com.
