12 Sep Next Concert in Barcelona: Harmonic Poem, Carles Marigó & Maria Camahort
Maria Camahort & Carles Marigó present Harmonic poem, an inspiring musical journey through short pieces by Spanish composers from the 16th and 17th centuries, a collection of gorgeous compositions for vihuela and baroque guitar.
In Spain the vihuela was the most played instrument in the refined atmosphere of the courts, but was also the main accompaniment to popular songs and dances. The pavanas, fantasías, villancicos and tientos that appear in the books of Milan, Narváez, Mudarra, Pisador, Fuenllana and Daza, considered short pieces of art, in many cases are simply their own personal approach to songs and dances that existed within the popular tradition.
Taking this as inspiration, Maria Camahort and Carles Marigó created Harmonic Poem: a set of imaginative, contemporary recreations of these songs and interludes, with an special emphasis on one of the oldest European musical themes, La Folia.
Next concert in Barcelona, at Casa Elizalde, October 14th.
