Intimate piety

 

On the occasion of the 450th anniversary of the death of San Juan de Ávila, patron of the University of Baeza since its foundation in 1542, the Festival de Música Antigua de Úbeda y Baeza has proposed our participation in this important event. “Intimate piety” is the title, which expressly includes, with a poetic nuance, the eagerness of our participation. This demanding and moving Baroque repertoire, composed by three authors, shows great doses of both musical and extra-musical interest. As regards music, the class, quality and importance of these works and composers should be highlighted. Regarding the extra-musical interest of this program, we refer to the vicissitudes suffered by composers such as Pergolesi, which makes this music even more interesting centuries later.
