Crossing Borders

Dec 13, 2020
Ars Lyrica Houston / Zilkha Hall

Crossing Borders explores a crucial moment in the musical history of the New World: when European musical traditions began to mingle with traditional folk music practices. This festive program includes poetic and colorful songs for voices and ensemble plus instrumental works drawn from the rich repertoire of 17th - and 18th-century colonial and Latin American cultures.

Musical selections by Roque Ceruti, José Duran, Antonio de Salazar, Manuel Joseph Quiroz, and Sebastián Duron are woven together to illustrate the multiple and creative ways music traverses cultural and national borders.

Camille Ortiz, soprano; Cecilia Duarte, mezzo-soprano
