Saturday, 28 of May, we will visit the winery of Carlos III (declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1983), that goes more than half a kilometer under the Real Cortijo de San Isidro.

In that space, the Seldom Sene female quintet will offer a concert in which we will appreciate near 50 flutes in a mosaic of 500 Years of Music. Once finished, local wines will be tasted, accompanied by an appetizer.

The viola da gamba returns on Sunday, 29 of May, to Chapel of the Royal Palace of Aranjuez, this time, hand in hand with the young brothers Fahmi | Y Rami Alqhai. This instrument was the main protagonist of chamber music during 250 years. His journey began as part of the luggage of the popes Borgia from his native Valencia, to universal Rome, back in the fifteenth century. During those two and a half centuries, the spirit of the viola and its interpreters traveled all over Europe: Tobias Hume in England, Marin Marais Y Antoine Forqueray in France, Y Christoph Schaffrath and the Berlin school in Prussia.

Fahmi Alqhai, considered one of the most important violagambistas in the world, with his brother Rami, are revolutionizing and renewing the historicist music scene with their daring and personal interpretation of early music, at the same time they do a great job of disseminating the viola da gamba among new audiences.
