Since the beginning of human civilization, the subject of love has long been the muse of countless creations in humanity. Formed by renowned soprano Raquel Andueza and theorbo player Jesús Fernández Baena, the award-winning ensemble La Galanía will join hands with guitarist Pierre Pitzl to perform a selection of Spanish and Italian love ballads from the 17th century. As music rejoices about love and laments the madness of love, the rhythmic poetry is juxtaposed with bittersweet melodies – all authentically revived with the early music spirit through the crystal-like purity in Raquel's singing!
