Baroque orchestra

It would be difficult to find two writers whose work has inspired as much music as Cervantes Y Shakespeare. Between 1650 Y 1750 written dozens of operas, suites or ballets based on works by English playwright, or in the adventures of El Quijote. The baroque and gallant aesthetic feel hopelessly attracted to these characters and storylines, full of affection, ambushes identities or delusional fantasies. This concert is plotted as a meeting of all in music, a journey in which music becomes representation of characters that are a substantial part of our mythology.

Founded in 1990, the Baroque Orchestra of the University of Salamanca It is the first Spanish string orchestra to be created in the current of historical musical interpretation. As a consequence of his approach to the baroque repertoire and the first classicism from the perspective of the original instruments and techniques, the orchestra has become the cornerstone of a global project specializing in early music that crystallized in the Academy of Early Music of the University of Salamanca. It has been conducted by musicians such as Wim ten Have, Jacques Ogg, Eduardo López Banzo, Sigiswald Y Wieland Kuijken, Federico M. Sardelli, Pablo Valetti, Emilio Moreno, Andrea Marcon, Kenneth Weiss, Enrico Onofri, Andoni Mercero O Pedro Gandía. He has also collaborated with groups such as the Peñaflorida Chapel or the Chamber Choir of the University of Salamanca, as well as with numerous vocal and instrumental soloists. He has given numerous concerts in much of Spain, Italy, Germany and Great Britain, participating in festivals and cycles such as the Golden Age, the Peñíscola Festival, the Almagro Festival, the Cycle of Cantatas de Bach of Madrid, etc. He has to his credit various 're-runs' of works from the 17th and 18th, among which we can point out the Psalm 51 from J. S. Bach, the concert version of the opera Narcissus, from Domenico Scarlatti, or the opera Don Quijote in Sierra Morena de Francesco Bartolomeo Conti. In the field of Spanish music, has carried out important work to recover assets, with concerts dedicated to the Christmas Carols to Our Lady of Mount, to works from the archives of the Cathedral and University of Salamanca or various programs on the stage song from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, etc. In recent years, and under the direction of Pedro Gandía, has tackled a multitude of programs ranging from the Concerti Grossi de Corelli O Muffat until the Motet In furore de Vivaldi, going through programs focused on Pepper, Bach, Rebel, Haendel, etc. The orchestra has made several recordings for Radio Nacional de España (Classical Radio) and released two CDs with the Verso label.

Following the success of previous editions, “Salamanca Barroca” faces this season 2016/17 consolidated as "a unique meeting point in the field of musical historicist interpretation in our country", García-Bernalt explained at a press conference, while he is stressing his firm "commitment to the recovery of musical heritage, consolidation repertoire, promotion of projects related to the Iberian historical music and revision of European Baroque, all this in an environment where academic elements and, particularly, teachers ".

Program "varied, extensive and deep "
The program of this edition presents, in his opinion “a varied panorama, extensive and deep, in which known repertoires coexist with works that come back to life after centuries of silence, in which Purcell meets with Duron Y Schein with Palestrina and young emerging musicians share the stage with leading performers ".

Precisely one of these projects opens the cycle on the day 3 October, with the Baroque Orchestra of the University of Salamanca, under the direction of Pedro Gandía. In the framework of the commemorations around Shakespeare Y Cervantes will offer a program that brings together both authors through the music that inspired their works; a journey through baroque Europe that takes us from Vienna to London.

For the director of the Academy of Early Music of the University of Salamanca and coordinator of the program, the musical proposal of this new edition has “the voice as a fundamental element, having a starring role in eight of the 11 concerts of the new season ". Three of them are related to the echoes of the third centenary of the death of Sebastian Duron (1660-1716). From the hand of interpreters and reference groups such as Marta Almajano, Nuria Rial, Academy of Pleasure Y La Grande Chapelle, An extensive overview of the sacred and secular production of a musician who was fundamental in shaping the peculiar Iberian Baroque.

The musical life of Salamanca in the 18th century is materialized in a project to recover a sacred concert, what at the time was called a "siesta". With the collaboration of the mezzo-soprano Marta Infante and the USAL Chamber Choir will cover half a century of music associated with the university chapel, from the late baroque to the first samples of classicism.

Two vocal formations of world reference
The cycle also welcomes two leading vocal formations in the world panorama of historically informed music: he Collegium Vocale Ghent Y The Sixteen, led respectively by Philippe Herreweghe Y Harry Christophers. In the exceptional setting of the chapel of Colegio Fonseca, and out of compost, The British group will offer an exuberant landscape of Italian sacred music related to the Pontifical Chapel, articulated around core authors of western polyphony such as Palestrina, F. Anerio Y Merry. For his part, Collegium Vocale focuses its program on a key piece of German sacred music from the first quarter of the 17th century: the exquisite collection of spiritual madrigals Israelsbrünlein from Johann Hermann Schein.

In the orbit of this work is also the program offered by the Concento de Bozes. This emerging group, derived from the training work carried out by the countertenor Carlos Mena in the USAL, will delve into the birth of poetic music, the new musical oratory that ended up reaching some of its highest levels in the German baroque. Also Carlos Mena, CNDM resident artist in season 2016-2017, will take part in the concert that closes the cycle. Together with the Baroque Orchestra of the University of Salamanca, it will offer a program organized around two cantatas for alto de Johann Sebastian Bach: Resist sin, written in Weimar on 1715 Y I have enough, the first version of which is set in Leipzig twelve years later. The two works will establish a dialogue with the secular music of the time, represented by a suite of Telemann and another of Johann Ludwig Bach.

Also the profane production of Bach will be present in Salamanca Barroca with a monumental work that shows the genius of the Office as a musician: the Musical offering. To interpret it - in several of the senses of the word - an exceptional group meets: violinist Lina Tur Bonet, cellist Marco Testori, The flute-player Alexis Kossenko and the harpsichord player Kenneth Weiss, who will take us to an evening that perhaps never took place at the court of Frederick II the Great.
