Join us for this fascinating program that explores the musical exchanges between Europe and Latin America in two centuries: Part 1 explores 17th century Baroque music composed in Latin America, including settings of Indigenous languages such as Quechua, Chiquitano, and Nahuatl. Part 2 features music by Heitor Villa Lobos, Carlos Chavez, and Ariel Ramirez, all composers from the 20th century who possessed both training in European musical styles and a passionate interest in Indigenous and folk traditions.
