On Izabela Branicka's name day – 19 November - we head towards southern Europe, where the listeners will find extraordinary treasures of Spanish music, the spontaneity and diversity of which is a perfect reflection of our ideas about hot Spanish temperament. The concert program draws directly from the works of Italian and Spanish guitarists Girolamo Montesardo, Carlo Calvi, Gaspar Sanz, Santiago de Murcia and Francesco Corbett, harpsichordists Antonio de Cabezón, Bernardo Storace, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck and Pieter de Vois, as well as chamber music composers for many others instruments, Andrea Falconieri, Bartolomé de Selma y Salaverde and Jacob van Eyck. All compositions will be performed by a trio of young and talented musicians from the Netherlands, who bring great rhythmic vitality and fresh imagination to this innovative act of reconstruction.
