"Vuelvo al Sur" - Canciones de Astor Piazzolla
Trio Luz y Sombra together with baritone Nicolás Lartaun, present a concert program in which the instrumental music of Astor Piazzolla forms the framework for his remarkable songs and ballads. Cleverly selected and specially arranged, word and sound, voice and instrument complement each other and together create a multifaceted togetherness.
The big themes of tango come to the front: love, longing and homeland.
They are staged by the violin, clarinet and piano, sometimes delicate and sophisticated, sometimes powerful and energetic. Thus, the three musicians create a stage for their guest, who recites Piazzolla's most famous songs such as Vuelvo al Sur and Balada para un loco with great gesture and touching voice.

...or translated, "The first bouquet of flowers, collected from the garden of Bellerofonte" is a collection of music from Bellerofonte Castaldi published in 1623.
This concert is a renaissance of several songs from this book, along with music by Francesca Caccini, Girolamo Frescobaldi, Claudio Monteverdi
and Hieronymus Kapsberger.
This selection of secular songs and monodies offer a wide palette of affetti: from divine bliss, to human joy and even to despair. Emotions filled with deep moral revelations, existential questions and ecstatic states of love.
The recitar cantando or singing declamation, the richness of virtuosic embellishments and the seductive rhythms are performed by the theorbo, the Baroque guitar and the human voice, giving a sublime sample of the compositional diversity that these masters of the Primo barocco cultivated.

Veri signum Amoris, the "True Sign of Love", with its varied compositions of renaissance and baroque, tells of a journey into the spheres of true spiritual love - even if it takes place between two persons - and of Signa Amoris, the so-called "lovesickness".
This concert spirituel connects like a golden chain all parts of the mighty song of praise Magnificat, whose healing tones from the Renaissance period takes the listener on a real ceremony and an expressive meditation.
Binding each moment with a version of the Song of Songs, or with the diminutions of a Palestrina Madrigal or, songs of hope and a big cantata of praise to the divine love written by Giacomo Carissimi.
