Alfonso x the wise and his time
In the year 2021, the 800th anniversary of the birth of this wise monarch was commemorated.
The Alfonsine court was one of the most important and prolific cultural centers of Europe in the 13th century. Artists, philosophers and scientists of different faiths and cultures converged in this refined courtly environment.
Fruit of this splendor was the production of numerous literary, legal, historical and scientific works of different kinds and the compilation and edition of more than 400 songs dedicated to the lady he considered most perfect and elevated: Santa María.
The program presented by L'Incantari recreates this exquisite troubadour and devotional atmosphere, complemented by other vocal and instrumental themes of the time and the environment of this multifaceted monarch.
