Upcoming Early Music Festival Dedicated to Literes

The quaint town of Colònia de Sant Pere in Mallorca is dedicating their annual early music festival, to be held this summer, to Antonio Literes (Antoni Lliteres).  In addition to several concerts, there will be a day-long symposium with early music performers and scholars, including Luis Antonio González from CSIC (Barcelona), who participated in our Fandango and Zapateado conferences. In 2012, González gave a lecture-recital for the Foundation for Iberian Music on Jesé de Nebra.  He is also the conductor of the internationally known early music ensemble Los Musicos de su Alteza. The Keynote speaker for this Literes symposium will be Antoni Pizà and the festival concerts will include performances of several works by Literes that were edited by Pizà and Anna Cazurra. Cazurra is another frequent collaborator with the Foundation and she received the composer’s commission in 2007.
