Spring 2014: Found

The age of European exploration spread the Renaissance polyphonic tradition, especially in its Iberian flavor, as far as the New World: both its techniques (via manuscripts) and, in some cases, its practitioners: European composers who settled in New Spain.  Convivium presents a program of works from both sides of the Atlantic: Guerrero, Victoria, Franco and more.   Found Concert Flyer
