The Mediterranean landscape of Italy and Spain is the cradle of the musical program that, on this occasion, is presented by the ensemble L'Incantari. A repertoire that helps us understand the context of an era that, in certain aspects, has survived to this day.
Romerico florido is the title of a song by a composer called ''Captain'' from the 17th century, which gives us the opportunity to approach that apparently naive and innocent, bucolic and pastoral world that opens the doors to other more metaphorical and philosophical.
The idyllic pastoral beauty, the stark spite, the religious devotion, the jealousy, the traditional mockery, the picaresque, the amorous debauchery, the frenzy, the disdain, the duel… they come to us through a chosen bouquet of pieces so close to our everyday life that will surely make us feel identified in more than a moment.
A love-themed repertoire whose style has its roots in the most genuine Hispanic and Mediterranean tradition. A tradition that gathers the fruits of Renaissance picaresque and golden age mysticism and reaches us through a sound amalgam, a symphony of aromatic plants and flowers transformed into music of a thousand colors.
Overwhelmed passions, emotional contrasts and baroque theatricality that, paradoxically, often lead us to recollection, silence and mysticism...
L'Incantari proposes a vivid, deep and real interpretation, based on the heritage of an essence still present in the customs and traditions of our society that often go unnoticed because they are everyday. A tradition reflected in so many stories, phrases and sayings, popular religiosity, superstitions and gastronomy that can be sensed and recognized in each of the themes.
In this way, throughout the program different passions will be unraveled through monologues (solo works) and dialogues (duo) discovering unfortunately still unknown composers of the stature of Juan Hidalgo, José Marín, Juan Arañés or Sebastián Durón. It will also include those "anonymous" musicians who, in the 21st century, are still waiting to be investigated in depth to unravel their identity...
These authors will be interpreted with the counterpoint of works by some of the great Italian masters of the same period, such as Alessandro Scarlatti, Giulio Caccini, Claudio Monteverdi or Giacomo Carissimi, who often inspired Hispanic musicians.
