Workshops/Festivals 2009: (AR) Festival de Clave en la Asociación Cultural Pestalozzi (Nov. 13 - Dec. 4/2009)

Contributed by Admin on Nov 11, 2009

For several years Leopoldo Perez has administered a series of harpsichord concerts and classes ­ sometimes more than a dozen in a season ­ and those concerts have developed an audience, and given harpsichordists from at least four continents a platform in Argentina. Last year a group began  conversations about furthering the influence of the harpsichord and its music and that has resulted in a month-long series of concerts beginning Friday, Nov. 13/2009.

Festival de Clave de Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires Harpsichord Festival

Harpsichord, clave, clavecin, clavicembalo…

This cycle of 4 concerts, to be held on Fridays from November 13th to December 4th, is an invitation to go through 4 centuries of music for the harpsichord. We will depart from the Renaissance, moving forward to the Baroque and Classicism, and, after its silence during the XIXth century - when the piano took over the scene - we will arrive to the XXth and XXIst centuries… hoping to delight our audience with the music of this and other ages - always present, always ours - just like the harpsichord continues to seduce composers nowadays.
