“La amable”: Instrumental music from New Spain’s archives

 

This program shows the variety of styles and contrasting elements of instrumental chamber music heard in New Spain in the second half of the 18th century. Mexican musical archives hold theater and chamber music (variations, sonatas, overtures) and many dances used in salons and balls in houses, palaces and theatres. La Fontegara presents works from several manuscript sources: Codice Saldívar 4 (Santiago de Murcia c.1732), notebooks with solfeggi and sonatas from the Cathedral of Mexico, a collection of pieces for traverso (XII Sonatas a Flauta e Basso di Pietro Locatelli &, Mexico, 1759), and the Quaderno de Doña Guadalupe Mayner. The group offers a recreation of this urban musical atmosphere bringing into life historical traditions.
