A recital of Baroque music from the 17th and 18th centuries performed by the ensemble La Galanía was held for the I Tatti community on Thursday, February 2, 2017.
Formed in 2010 by Raquel Andueza and Jesús Fernández Baena, La Galanía is one of the most important specialist groups on the Spanish music scene. Its members form part of globally recognised orchestras and prestigious groups, such as Hespèrion XXI, Al Ayre Español, L'Arpeggiata, Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla, Private Musicke, and the Orchestra of the Age of the Enlightenment, amongst others. At the core of the group is soprano Raquel Andueza, who is frequently invited to perform at the world’s most important auditoriums and festivals.
The recital Yo soy la locura: Spanish and European Music of the 17th century was organized by I Tatti Fellow Cory Gavito, who opened the event in conversation with the performers and Álvaro Torrente, Professor of Music History at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
