Venue details

 

 

Although only founded in 2016, the young quartet Cantoría has already made a name for itself with performances at numerous European festivals and important venues where vocal music is promoted, especially in its native Spain and the Benelux countries. Their programme may be about ‘evil tongues’, but it’s full of glorious a cappella sounds. In selected Spanish works of secular polyphony from the 15th and 16th centuries, the quartet helps us understand just how significant earthly passion and religious devotion – both separately and together – were for the people of the time. The performance in Leipzig will include music from the important anthologies of this era, the ‘Cancioneros’ as well as ensaladas by Mateo Flecha el Viejo.

 

Formed: 2016

 

Members:
