Venice: the birth of brass instruments

 

The extraordinary cultural movement that took place in Europe in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, known as the Renaissance, involved deep changes in the way in which music was understood, in the way of creating musical works and presenting the musical structures. New fashions and trends in Italy led to the use of brass instruments used and to the creation of new families of instruments which will gradually displace the human voice to enrich and enhance music in big spaces. The transition from vocal to instrumental music is one of the great changes of Italian composers in the Renaissance. This concert includes works by some of these composers responsible for the arrival and evolution of brass instruments.

Xauen Cathedral Brass. It is a musical ensemble composed of brass instrumentalists and created in 2012 to perform Renaissance and Baroque music. Its origins are found in the Banda Sinfónica de Jaén, as they perform some fanfare on the eve of the Feast of Santa Cecilia every year from 2008 onwards. The group has performed numerous religious music concerts at the Churches of San Ildefonso and San Bartolomé, and has participated in the XIV Festival de Otoño de Jaén, the Ciclo Catedral de Jaén, and the XX Festival de Música Antigua de Úbeda y Baeza.
