Espanoletas – Spanischer Wind
Sounds from the Golden Age – Music of the Ministriles in 1600
“Españoletas – Spanish Winds” brings the music of the ministriles back to life for modern audiences. With festive music from the Renaissance and early Baroque periods, it transports listeners to the Siglo de Oro, Spain’s golden age, in which composers such as Antonio de Cabezón, Diego Ortiz and Gaspar Sanz were celebrated throughout Europe.
Lively dances, lilting canzonas and rousing recercadas, played by a historically-informed ensemble of modern ministriles, convey the tremendous exhilaration and joie de vivre of 16th- and 17th-century Spanish wind band music.
