La Compañia, Musica Espanola (Spanish Renaissance @ Recital Centre Salon)

Anyone interested in seeing La Compañia who are performing a concert featuring Spanish Renaissance music? If this concert is anything like their Destino Mexicano CD it should be pretty good! If anyone is interested in coming we can meet at the Recital Centre's Sturt St entry (near the stairs to E Murdoch hall) 10-15min before the concert. As the concert is only 1h, people may wish to grab a coffee or something after. Tickets are $38.

Here's the info from the Recital Centre's website.......
The Golden Age of Spain was a period of great artistic flourishing, with innovative composers creating highly distinctive music, vibrant in character. The Iberian Peninsula enriched by multicultural influences was a fertile territory for this spirited and passionate music.

On diverse and expressive period instruments La Compañia captures the splendour and beauty of the music from the Spanish Renaissance.

    Excellent ensemble playing, mastery of this genre of music, and funnily enough my feet were tapping in time to the rhythms! Thank you Claire.

    I got my ticket!!...erm...I think. The email hasn't come through.

    Hope to see you there one way or another though.

  • Joachim

    Hi Linus, looking forward to meeting you. If you can't find anyone from the group, call me on[masked] unless you get there too late and the concert has already started. If that happens call me at the end. Some of us might go for a coffee. Joachim.

    February 25, 2014

  • Linus

    Excellent - I just booked on. I LOVE Spanish music!!! First meet up with this group for me, so I hope I see you there. Is there a meeting place?

    Thank-you to Cath for organise this site. Would love to be able to join you all on this journey to Spain's wonderful music, but am off to the Geelong highland festival. Can't wait to meet you all!.

    February 24, 2014

  • Wony

    Owing to Joachim's alarm, I will have to get the ticket online too, which is quite unusual. If anybody wants me to book yours along with mine, leave a message here till tomorrow 9am. (You can save booking surcharge over $5!)
    Of course you have to turn up and pay me later. Otherwise my men will come after you!

    1 · February 24, 2014

  • Joachim

    Hi Wony, I just booked my ticket online and noticed the salon is filling up fast. The earlier performance has already sold out. It might be a good idea to get your ticket soon. I'll be there about 6:30 and will look out for you. Do you have a mobile? Joachim.

    1 · February 22, 2014

    • Cat

      Thanks for the tip Joachim. I just bought my ticket. I'll get there at 6.30 too- looking forward to meeting everyone!

      February 23, 2014

    • Wony

      Thanks for the head-up!

      February 24, 2014

  • Julianna

    Got my ticket ! Look forward to the concert !

    February 24, 2014

  • Joachim

    Hi Wony (and anyone else who likes the idea of meeting before the concert) let's exchange mobiles. If you can't see me ring[masked] 314. Joachim.

    1 · February 21, 2014

    • Wony

      I'll certainly do. I'll get the ticket on site around 6pm then we could catchup for coffee sometime after that. Other attendees are all welcome to join!

      February 22, 2014

  • Wony

    Anybody keen to share their CDs?
    I can bring Ay Portugal(2012) CD to this event to share.
    Would love to listen to any other recording of them.

    February 16, 2014

    • Claire

      I think that's a great idea. But I'm now one of these digital people that just uses Spoitfy and has no CDs to share. Happy to share playlist, fav pieces of music though. As a side note all of La Compania's CDs are available on Spotify.

      1 · February 16, 2014

    • Lisa

      Oops I have the same one - Ay Portugal.

      1 · February 18, 2014

  • Lisa

    I have another of their CDs, and very much like what they do.

    1 · February 16, 2014

  • Joachim

    It would be good to meet first and try to sit together. Coffee afterwards is always a good idea so we can talk about the performance. Would it be possible for someone to post a mobile phone number in case we miss each other?

    1 · February 14, 2014

  • Claire

    Hi Jill,

    February 14, 2014

    • Claire

      I have suggested this meetup. I have purchased my own ticket and thought others who would like to come along could do the same. We can then meet before the concert for a chat then perhaps head on for a coffee and discussion after. As the concert is in the Salon there is no seating allocation so there is a good chance we can sit as a group. I hope this assists. Claire

      February 14, 2014

  • Wony

    This is a great band indeed!
