Raquel Andueza and La Galanía present Spanish songs from the 17th century about love, passion and mischief. What is special about the selection is that most of these Spanish songs can only be found today in Italian and French sources. They were probably once kept at the library in the Alcazar Real, the royal palace in Madrid. On Christmas Eve 1734, however, a fire reduced the palace to ashes. Priceless cultural heritage went up in flames, including five hundred paintings and important musical manuscripts. Raquel Andueza’s warm but transparent voice, enormous colour palette, stage presence and passionate interpretations make the flamboyant Spanish soprano a much-loved guest on stage at AMUZ.
