Spain and New Spain: Early Music
Music through time. Enjoy Renaissance and Baroque music as it was played centuries ago.
The UCLA Early Music Ensemble unites musicians across borders of all types to present a program of music from Spain and Latin America, composed during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Our ensemble performs on period instruments in accordance with historical styles. This concert will feature music by Juan del Encina, Santiago de Murcia, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, and others.
The Early Music Ensemble is dedicated to vocal and instrumental music from before 1800, with particular emphasis on Western repertories not usually covered by other UCLA ensembles. The mission of the ensemble is dual: to explore historical repertories and performance practices with depth and rigor, and to bring the results of these explorations to a high performance level.
