Description

During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the musical dialogue between the Old and the New Worlds produced extraordinary results. This fascinating blend of European polyphony and Latin American traditional music created a unique style that is exemplified by the villancicos of the bolivian composer Juan de Araujou and the colorful guarachos of his contemporaries. Also included in the program are sonatas by Locatelli and Flaconieri, two European composers who were influenced by this Latin American style. Gems from this spectacular musical era will be performed on instruments that were common at the time: flutes and recorders, baroque guitar, cello, and various percussion instruments.
