Zarzuela / Baroque music

This program by Al Ayre Español offers us a glimpse of the music that people listened to in Madrid in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. On the one hand, zarzuelas by Antonio de Literes and Sebastián Durón, who dominated the scene at the time, premiering first in the royal court and then in the tenements known as “corrales”. On the other hand, vocal compositions by the masters of the three Royal Chapels (the Convent of the Incarnation, the Convent of Las Descalzas Reales, and the Royal Palace), including most notably, the work of José de Torres. And finally, sonatas by Italian authors such as Arcangelo Corelli or Giovanni Bononcini, whose rapid arrival in the city and at the royal court was the result of the contact that existed between Spanish and Italian musicians and the publications they shared. Popular and cultured, sacred and profane airs, instrumental music and vocal music courtesy of this ensemble which was founded in and has been directed since 1988 by Eduardo López Banzo. The winner of the National Music Prize in 2004, it is a reference point for historicist interpretation.
