Puerto de la Cruz will host a new edition of the Festival of Ancient Music between March and April 2017, in its commitment to make culture one of the most important signs of identity in the city. It is for the enjoyment of both the citizens of the island of Tenerife as well as the millions of tourists who visit us every year.
Fifteenth edition of the Ancient Music Festival of Puerto de la Cruz
This festival, which houses the style of ancient music and baroque music, which is not usual at present, is already consolidated in the cultural agenda of Puerto de la Cruz, this year being its fifteenth edition.
A festival that tries to cover a cultural gap existing in our times, that of the beautiful compositions that were produced centuries ago and that with events like this one is tried that they are not lost in the forgetfulness, as well as to spread it between the new generations.
The Timanfaya Theater, the Iglesia de la Peña de Francia and the Museum of Contemporary Art Eduardo Westerdahl will be the emblematic places of Puerto de la Cruz in which will take place the 7 auditions that will compose the agenda of the festival.
There will be interpreted:
– a repertoire of some of the most important composers that have existed in the history of mankind, such as Mozart or Bach.
– “A Round Around the World” composers George Lambert and Jung Wha Lee.
– Works by Guerrero, Victoria, Morales
– Compositions of Kellners, Visée and Weiss will be interpreted with a baroque lute
– “A journey through music” by the duo composed by the soprano Cristina Barceló and Vicent Bru.
– Spanish music from the 13th century to the 20th century
How to get tickets
Tickets to all these events of unquestionable cultural quality may be purchased in the same premises where they will be held each of the acts or in advance in the offices of the CIT of Puerto de la Cruz
Organizers of the Ancient Music Festival
The 15th edition of the Puerto de la Cruz Ancient Music Festival is organized by the Reyes Bartlet Cultural Association, the Initiatives Center of Puerto de la Cruz and the Puerto de la Cruz Town Hall.
Commitment to the culture of Puerto de la Cruz
The Festival of Ancient Music adds to the great amount of cultural events that take place in the city throughout the year and of which we have already spoken previously in our blog: like the Festival Mueca that was rescued after the economic crisis by the citizens themselves so that it could continue or the Night in White that hosts numerous cultural events.
It is also to highlight the importance of art in the city due to the presence of an iconic and picturesque neighborhood that has embraced art to beautify its streets as it is the La Ranilla neighborhood of Puerto de la Cruz.
In addition, as we mentioned earlier, Puerto de la Cruz is promoting its city through art, and proof of this is the leading role that gave some of the most important artists of the city in the fair Fitur, one of the Major tourism fairs nationally and internationally.
