Voyage Baroque in the words of Camilo Delgado Díaz 


My passion for European baroque music gave birth to this programme. It may seem strange that someone such as I, from another continent with a different culture, would be interested in performing this music. However, the beauty of this period in classical music sparked a desire to understand and interpret it myself.  

In this programme, we'll take a little journey across the European continent. I wanted to include a variety of languages, starting with my mother tongue. We begin with „tonos humanos“ (“human tones”), a term of the Spanish golden age. These speak of love, like almost all secular music of the time, as opposed to the words of the „divine tones“. A folk song by the Colombian composer Efraín Orozco follows, called El Regreso (The Homecoming). As an immigrant myself, I always have in my mind the thought of returning to my homeland. But the journey must continue onwards. Next to France with an “air de cour” by Pierre Guédron and an aria from the opera Atys by Jean-Baptiste Lully. After that, a pan-European piece composed in England by a German composer (G.F. Händel) which premiered in Dublin, Ireland. This aria, "Every Valley" from the Messiah, is so well-known it needs no introduction. Our journey ends in Italy with an aria by Alessandro Scarlatti from the opera Griselda, the last of his operas to have been totally preserved. This aria is not about love, but rather a song filled with conflicting feelings of confusion and empathy, offering consolation to a mother about to lose her son by order of the king of Sicily.
