The Abierto por concierto (Open for Concerts) programme at the Cathedral of Santa María will come to an end this weekend with two new performances.
This Friday at eight o’clock in the evening, visitors can enjoy a performance by the musical group Concejo Abierto, which specialises in the Baroque repertoire from the late sixteenth to the early eighteenth century and features the original instruments in its performances. Its work includes a detailed search for material, musicological research and subsequent performances, with acclaimed musical experts lending their advice and collaboration.
The group is made up of musicians Ander Berrojalbiz (violín), Maider López
(viola) and Virginia Gonzalo (harpsichord and organ), although in this concert, they will be accompanied by four other musicians: Cristina Bayón (soprano),
Soma Salat-Zakariás (viola da gamba), Thor-Harald Johnsen (theorboe) and Roger
Junyent i Balsach (Baroque violín).
And on Saturday 29, the season’s last recital will feature the group Les Saqueboutiers from Toulouse. Considered by experts and the general public alike as a frame of reference in seventeenth-century music, this group is made up of a series of ancient brass instruments including a nucleus of cornets and sackbuts, which are joined, when necessary, by others such as violins, violas, basses and bagpipes. This concert will also begin at 8.00 p.m.
The concerts will take place in the portico of the Cathedral and are free of charge, although invitations are required. Those interested can collect invitations at the Cathedral’s Visitors Reception Centre (Plaza de las Brullerías).
