Fans, fantasias and fandangos

Fans, fantasias and fandangos

A journey in time through Spain from the 16th century to the 20th – from the courts of Phillip II with Diego Ortiz (Recercardia 1553)  to that of Queen Maria Bárbara in Madrid with Domenico Scarlatti two centuries later (Sonatas 1752 – 57). In our own age – Joaquin Rodrigo’s Fantasia para un gentilhombre and Stephen Yates’ improvisation on a 16-bar fandango all capture the essence of Spain and reveal the extent and variety of Spanish life. With Shaun Ng (viola da gamba), Shaun Warden (violin) and Diana Weston (harpsichord).
