Asteria is a duet comprising Sylva Rhyne, soprano, and Eric Redlinger, tenor and lute. Winner of the 2004 Early Music America Competition for Medieval and Rennaissance Performance, the New York Times has called their music “intimate and deeply communicative… meltingly beautiful.” Asteria is known for its compelling and personal delivery of 15th century vocal and instrumental music from the courts of Burgundy, performed entirely from memory. Since winning the competition Sylvia and Eric have had a busy touring schedule in the US and have appeared in Mexico, France, Germany, and Switzerland. They have released two CDs (‘Le Souvenir de vous me tue’ and ‘Soyes Loyal’) and are currently recording a third (‘Un tres doulx regard’). This video was filmed on-location in the only extant Burgundian chateau, Germolles.
