Round-trip playing: Vihuela players in New Spain

 

Although there are few investigations into the reception of vihuela sixteenth-century treatises in the New World, we know that, from the beginning of the colonial period, the assimilation of this musical legacy was a reality. The beautiful works that we will perform provide evidence of this. These pieces constitute an echo of those used by instrumentalist soldiers to teach indigenous and dilettantes and which were secretly enjoyed by some clerics at the palaces of high-profile figures and viceroys.
