Music of Santiago de Murcia (1673 – 1739)
Recital followed by a wine tasting and reception
Featuring music from the Spanish composer’s eclectic books, which contain traditional Spanish forms such as the Passacalles, arrangements of French dance suites, transcriptions of the violin music of Corelli, and new dance styles from Colonial Central America and Africa, this program will include selections from the 1722 manuscript Cifras selectas de guitarra, which was discovered in Chile in 2006.
Please join us for this short recital by one of early music's most esteemed North American performers, followed by a sampling of selections from Serendipity's exquisite collection paired with gourmet cheeses.
