Join Music City Baroque for this special performance inspired by Art and Imagination in Spanish America, 1500–1800: Highlights from LACMA’s Collection that reflects upon the experience of musicians and music-making in the complex contexts of colonial societies in Latin America.
The program includes pieces from Jesuit missions in Bolivia (anonymous), popular pieces imported from Europe (Zipoli, de Murcia), and vocal music and villancicos from Latin American composers (Pérez de Bocanegra, Céspedes, Fernandes, Sumaya). The music features violins, basso continuo, recorder, a vocal ensemble, and Baroque guitar.
This concert is supported in part by the Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies at Vanderbilt University.
