Early Music Workshop with Musica Temprana in October

As organization partner and participant of Early Music Foundation’s citywide “New York Early Music Celebration 2015: El Nuevo Mundo,” the Foundation for Iberian Music is most pleased to host a lecture/workshop conducted by the Netherlands-based ensemble Musica Temprana. The workshop will be a great opportunity for CUNY’s graduate student body, scholars with particular interests in Hispanic culture, local early music aficionados, connoisseurs, and amateurs, as well as a diverse cross-section of Celebration (festival) attendees.

The subject of Musica Temprana’s workshop will be background research and the application of historically informed  performance practices, relating to Musica Temprana’s upcoming concert program, presented by Music Before 1800 as a part of the NY Early Music Celebration festival.

The concert will be October 18, 2015. (Details below.) The workshop itself is October 16, 10 am -1 pm, at the Graduate Center’s Segal Theater.

Musica Temprana’s concert program, “Bailes, Tonadas & Cachuas,” features 18th century songs and dances ‘from the streets’ from Trujillo, Peru. A recording of these works, from the Codex Trujillo, is available from Cobra Records.
