Synopsis

Concert of the Festival de Música Antigua de Tenerife

The last concert in the year by Orquesta Barroca de Tenerife at the Auditorio de Tenerife.

The Cantata is one of the best representatives of the sound laboratory of the Baroque. As opposed to the Sonata, whose instrumental flow is full of tonal arguments and skilful discourse -especially in the violin scales- the Cantata developed, in all the possible vocal tessituras along with colourist accompaniment, a new way of understanding texts and poetry, which was unheard of in the History of Music.  At the same time as Opera and Oratorio, from its very beginnings in the 17th century, it gradually enriched the repertoire across Europe, until it reached its height in the early 18th century, getting to the late Baroque with the beautiful and bold compositions of D. Buxthuede, G. P. Telemann and J. S. Bach. 

The Orquesta Barroca de Tenerife’s programme to celebrate Christmas is a sample of this dexterity playing excellent works from the vocal catalogue of the so-called German Baroque music. The best biblical, religious or spiritual texts were used to create the corpus of cantatas and oratorios exalting the Joyful episodes, extoling the Glorious and acclaiming the Painful. There is no doubt they are each an event of high creative sharpness as you will listen for yourself in this selection.

In addition to vocal skills, this programme also includes instrumental practice of refined delicate sound out of the workshop of J. Rosenmüller, G. Muffat and J. C. F. Fischer. A night of sounds full of light for the night of eternal light, Christmas’ Eve.
