Lost Spanish Baroque Music Coming to Helsinki

Irene Mas

The Finnish Baroque Orchestra (FiBO), featuring soprano Irene Mas, will soon be performing a work by Literes that was discovered and edited by Antoni Pizà and Anna Cazurra. The program, which Pizà advised with Jordi Alomar, was previously performed at Early Music Week in Colònia de Sant Pere. FiBO writes that they programmed Literes among well-known contemporaries Conti and Telemann in order to highlight the unique qualities of Catalan baroque music, in contrast to the music of more fashionable continental courts.

The program will be performed January 31 (€10) and February 1 (free) in Helsinki, Finland. See FiBO’s site for venue and ticket information.
