All'Antica Musika Spain
David Sáez, Iglesia Santa María de Getxo , 48991 Getxo, Bizkaia
It is a multidisciplinary scenic proposal that mixes ancient baroque English, French and Italian, music seeking a reunion between the past and the present.  

With this concert we want to publicize a deeply rooted custom at the end of the 17th century that consisted of taking a trip through Europe, with Italy as the destination key, undertaken by young Europeans of sufficient means, when they had reached the age of majority (around 21 years old).

Interspersing brief explanatory comments between the different national styles, contextualizes the music and helps the viewer place themselves in the time of Purcell, of the Palace of Versailles and the Italian baroque, where music played a role fundamental.
