The Splendour of Lights

For the third consecutive year, the Asturian conductor Aarón Zapico is in charge of the Festival’s Baroque Academy, an educational project, but one that is already capable of giving first-rate artistic results (as could be seen with his Purcell last year). For this occasion, a journey through the Age of Enlightenment has been arranged, from its baroque dawn, in composers as important as Corelli (maestro in Rome at the end of the 17th century) to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, his father Johann Sebastian and his godfather Telemann. The eccentric note (geographically speaking) will be put by the British Charles Avison, an attentive collector of all the innovations that came from the continent.
