Two of the concerts will centre on the works of composer Carlo Gesualdo, performed by two of today’s most renowned vocal ensembles: Exaudi and Graindelavoix.
The Festival will open with a performance by Albert Recasens’ La Grande Chapelle. Jordi Savall will explore the art of variation and improvisation in European 17th century chamber music. Le Consort, with soprano Emmanuelle de Negri, will take audiences on a journey through the melodies of French baroque. The Festival’s final concert features Forma Antiqva’s Zapico brothers performing duets by Steffani, accompanied by countertenor Carlos Mena and soprano Eugenia Boix.
The fourth edition of Llums d’Antiga will take place in three of Barcelona’s most fascinating mediaeval buildings: the Chapel of Santa Àgata, the Basilica of Santa Maria del Pi and the Monastery of Sant Pau del Camp.
