Quien te traxo cavallero – Elia Casanova & Alfred Fernández – Semana Música Antigua de Estella
EL CANCIONERO DE ELVAS Cuando uno trabaja los cancioneros ibéricos del Renacimiento, enseguida se da cuenta de un detalle curioso...
Cantoría will performance “Lenguas Malas”, by Bartomeu Cárceres, Francisco Guerrero and Mateo Flecha.
Gossips and sensationalism, social conventions and rumors, promises and betrayal… The Iberian fifteenth and sixteenth centuries were full of uncertainties. Evil and good found their battlefield in the human soul. The cosmic fight between God and the Devil was mirrored in the lives of individuals. And the victory of one or another went far beyond life, into the unknown eternity after
death. This antagony beweent desire and purity was also the premise in which social organization was based. When passions went too far, individuals had to struggle with the prescriptions of religious thought and popular knowledge that configured their reality. It was both a fight against the others and one itself.
This programme shows us how the people from the past expressed these experiences
through music. We will meet the hideaways, social manners and cracks of a time in which the stiff social structures transformed low passions and religious vocation into art.
