 Convento Santa Catalina

Santa Catalina convent in La Laguna is the most suitable temple on the island to listen to organ compositions from the 16th to the late 18th and early 19th centuries as it has two good German organs: one by Joachim Richborn of the 17th century and another one of the mid-18th century. The programme will be performed in both instruments. Sweelinck, Reincken and Kerll, representing the German schools of the 17th century open the programme, which includes some of the most typical genres of that time: from the “stylus fantasticus” of the toccata or the fantasy with echo, to the passacaglia, tiento or canarios of Spanish origin.

The second part features works by composers of the 18th century, starting by J.S. Bach’s eldest son, Carl Philipp Emanuel, to then move on to Spain and listen to the work of four of the most outstanding organist of Madrid’s Capilla Real: José de Torres, Sebastián de Albero, José Lidón and Italian Domenico Scarlatti.
