“Con afecto y armonía”: The circulation of music and musicians between Spain, Portugal, Italy and America

 

The cantada, Spanish form of the Italian cantata, saw an important circulation by the American countries, as the archives of some of its cathedrals attest. In this program, the soprano from Tenerife, Raquel Lojendio, presents a route with cantadas of some of the great figures of Spanish Baroque, such as Sebastián Durón and José de Torres. Most of these works are preserved in Guatemala, but a work by Antonio Literes, preserved in Lisbon, and another by the Italian Roque Ceruti which is kept in Lima, are also included, extending the circle of production and diffusion of this music. The instrumental pieces confirm this idea.

Aarón Zapico, harpsichord and director. Born in Asturias, Aarón Zapico has made a forceful arrival on the early music scene in Spain over recent years. The key to this success can be found in his elegant, resilient interpretations with their varied and nuanced dynamics, as highlighted by the music critics in this arena. He is constantly present at the most important festivals and concert halls, leading symphonic orchestras, specialised groups and his own group Forma Antiqva.

Forma Antiqva. Created by the brothers Pablo, Daniel and Aarón Zapico, Forma Antiqva is a Baroque music ensemble with a variable line-up that brings together the most outstanding performers of its generation. The group is considered by critics to be one of the most important and promising classical music ensembles in Spain.
