    In this interview with conductor, pianist, and harpsichordist Mark Tatlow, who was the principal artistic researcher within Performing Premodernity, he describes what he has learned from working within the Early Music and Historically Informed Performance movements since the 1980s, and especially from working at the Drottningholm Palace Theatre. The conversation revolves around the crucial importance of the communicative aspect of musical and operatic performance, and about close attention to the words of a libretto or a sung poem as a key to a singer’s vocal performance.
