The trio made up of Laura Martínez (voice), Jordi Montoliu (violin) and Gil Lladó (key) offers a program that goes from Monteverdi to Bach and that makes us travel between the two extremes of the European Baroque period where two great revolutions took place that they forever changed music.
The Art of the Revolution program makes us travel between the two extremes of the European Baroque period, where two great revolutions took place that forever changed music as we understand it today. From Monteverdi to Bach, starting from the Italian that revolutionized vocal music and created the concept of modern opera to the German that changed the concept of music itself forever and forever. The works that make up this journey will allow us to appreciate how forms, styles and aesthetics evolved between these two unrepeatable geniuses and admire the art of revolutionizing everything and forever.
