Program

The year 2016 marked the 300th anniversary of the death of Sebastián Durón, undisputedly ‎the most important Spanish composer of his time, who was responsible, according to the ‎accusation made by Father Feijoo, of the Italianisation of Spanish music or, in other words, its ‎return to the contemporary musical idioms of Europe after the stifling 17th century. Under ‎the provocative name of Muera Cupido (Death to Cupid!), viola da gamba player ‎Fahmi Alqhai and soprano Núria Rial, our most international of Early Music voices, will unite ‎their musical talents to bring new life to a select collection of arias from Durón’s theatrical ‎works dedicated to the inexhaustible and ever-heady theme of love. The Accademia del ‎Piacere, one of the most outstanding Early Music ensembles in the country, which has Alqhai ‎as director, will accompany the two musicians in a programme that will see the modern ‎premiere of some of the works of Durón and one of his peers with the same style, the ‎progressive Italian Giovanni Bononcini.‎
