Beyond the Spanish Golden Age in York and London

La Galiana & Raquel Andueza and Concerto 1700

Two glorious concerts in York and London on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 May 2023 as the National Centre for Early Music (NCEM) continues to strengthen its relationship with Spanish musicians. 

La Galiana & Raquel Andueza and Concerto 1700 will be appearing at the NCEM’s  home, the medieval church of St Margaret’s, celebrating a new relationship with Instituto Cervantes and the Spanish National Centre for the Promotion of Music (CNDM, Madrid), and the INAEM (Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports) within the framework of the Europa Project. And the concerts are also being presented at the London Festival of Baroque Music at St John's Smith Square

Beyond the Spanish Golden Age presents performances in York and London showcasing some of the best Spanish musicians specialising in Spanish baroque music. For the opening concert, award-winning ensemble La Galiana and soprano Raquel Andueza celebrate the Spanish Golden Age of the Baroque as seen through the eyes – and ears – of the wider European community with music by Henry du Bailly, Jean Baptiste Lully, Enrico Radesca and more. In York on 13 May and in London on 14 May

Concerto 1700's Music of the Spanish Enlightenment brings a programme of 18th century string trios by Castle, Boccherini and Brunetti – written to please both the Royal Court of Madrid but also a civil society eager to experience new science and culture; the music of a Spain connected with the most innovative musical currents of its time. In York on 14 May and in London on 13 May
