The festival resident’s first concert takes its cue from the Habsburg court in the 17th century and combines music and poetry from Madrid to Lisbon from that era. You will hear works by maestro Mateo Romero, Juan Blas de Castro, Joan Pujol, Alvaro de los Rios and Manuel Machado on texts by Antonio Hurtado de Mendoza, Luis Vélez de Guevara, Luis de Góngora and Lope de Vega. Allow yourself to get steeped in the romances and seguidillas interpreted by the splendid voices of the artist in residence of Laus Polyphoniae 2011!
At 10:15 p.m. this festival evening will continue with Café Saudade.
