Concert 1
El fuego

With a refined style, a vibrant rhythm and an unfailing melodic lyricism the Spanish Ensalada (mixed musical salad) captivated and delighted audiences. Designed for elaborate celebrations these large-scale works fused many varied styles and melodic rhythmic fragments with well known tunes to create an intriguing and highly original composition. With their diverse palate of rich instrumental flavours La Compañia presents a vivid program with works from the master and creator of the refined Ensalada Matheo Flecha.

Concert 2
L’air parfumé

Elegant, stylish and undeniably French the Air de Cour enchanted King Louis XIII and his courtiers in the magnificent and splendorous opulence of the Palais du Louvre. Passionate songs with tantalizing lyrics and memorable melodies emerged from the streets of Paris and spread though all layers of society capturing the French taste in the early Baroque. With the refined art of embellishment and improvisation La Compañia will create a musical dialogue that is rich, imaginative and full of variety.

Concert 3
Il Paradiso

Sumptuous and glorious music, the Italian masters at the turn of the seventeenth century redefined their musical landscape. This music is highly virtuosic with florid songs, expressive in style and breathtakingly beautiful, indeed heavenly. La Compañia on their rich and splendid period instruments will delight in a journey of the Italian North to find paradise on earth in a program celebrating the music from the time of Monteverdi and his contemporaries.
