Kingdoms and Viceroys Music of Spain and its Dominions

Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, Spain ruled over a vast region that stretched from Italy, across the Mediterranean and Atlantic, to Central and South America. Indigenous people of this area were drawn to the arts and active musical scene. The musical result was an intoxicating style that bears the imprint of folk music. Rebel and its special guests will perform vocal and instrumental works by Durón, Falconieri, Castellanos, Nebra, Orejón y Aparicio, de Salazar, and Vivaldi. Hailed by The New York Times as “sophisticated and beguiling” and praised by the Los Angeles Times for their “astonishingly vital music-making,” the New York-based Baroque ensemble Rebel has earned an impressive international reputation, enchanting audiences with their virtuosic, highly expressive and provocative approach to the Baroque and Classical repertoire.
