MÓNICA MELCOVA, organ

Dances, capricci, tientos and battles

The European organ music from the sixteenth and the seventeenth centuries is characterised by its unique richness and diversity in terms of schools, styles, forms, languages and instruments. This concert proposes a journey through three schools of organ music in late-Renaissance and Baroque Europe: the Italian peninsula, with both the Kingdom of Naples under the Spanish crown and the genius of Girolamo Frescobaldi in Rome; the British Isles with William Byrd; and the Iberian school with the well-known composers Correa de Araujo from Sevilla and Juan Bautista Cabanilles in Valencia.
