The Balcony of Marizápalos
Iberian music of the 17th centuryIbera Auri - Laia Blasco López, soprano · Gabriel Belkheiri García del Pozo, tenor and recorders · Lidia Rodrigo Royo, spinet · Jérémy Nastasi, Baroque guitar more
The balcony of Marizápalos, the mistress of Spanish King Philip IV, is an excellent place for watching events on Madrid’s Plaza Mayor. And a wonderful place for listening to the music played in honour of the King and Queen. The Ibera Auri ensemble invite us to take a seat on this balcony and to listen to the rather Spanish cantatas, folk songs and Zarzulos performed for the King and the French music which the Queen brought with her from her home country. Both cultures merge, influencing each other in Spain’s “Golden Age”. An exciting journey through the world of Iberian musical culture.
Ibera Auri are guests in Schloss Weißenbrunn as Young Artists-in-Residence, and in addition to this programme will also bring along some Spanish Christmas songs.
