Música de España
a celebration of Spanish Baroque music
About the Project
For the 2023/2024 season, the International Baroque Consort will be celebrating the music of the Spanish Baroque and music with strong Spanish ties. Our tour programme ‘Música de España’ will feature works by Joaquín Martínez de la Roca, anonymously composed music set to the words of Lope de Vega, Juan Francisco Escuder, Diego Ortiz, Sebastián Durón, and Giuseppe Antonio Paganelli. Our upcoming tour around the UK will include concerts in Manchester in June and July 2023. We also plan to bring this music with us to Europe and the USA in 2024. In these concerts, we will showcase the unique and unfamiliar music of 17th and 18th century Spain, giving them a new lease of life!
There are many ways for you to be involved! Come along to one of our concerts, workshops, masterclasses and learn more about this fascinating repertoire. Check back here for updates about tour dates and locations.
We are always in need of extra funds to help us with costs relating to instrument hire and transport, travel expenses, professional recordings, and the research, purchase and transcribing of musical scores (many of which are not readily available). Please consider supporting us as we endeavour to champion rare and unfamiliar music, bringing them to the attention of a wider audience. We are passionate about music education and our work with young people, and with your support, we will be able to hold more events and workshops which inspire and engage a range of ages and abilities.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events this season.
