Rubén Dubrovsky, direction

Gaspar Fernández: Villancicos (Mexiko 1609)
Claudio Monteverdi: Madrigali (Venedig 1607)

In Baroque Mexico, indigenous people, Spanish conquerors, African slaves, and Sephardic refugees meet. The music of these cultures and the creative power of Gaspar Fernandez unite in a new kind of church music. At the same time, in distant Venice, Claudio Monteverdi combines exotic dance rhythms with preserved Italian polyphony. His musical work meant a revolution for music in church, court and opera.
Founded in 1999, the Bach Consort Wien under the direction of Rubén Dubrovsky is one of the most prominent baroque ensembles in Austria. The Bach Consort Wien has remained true to its chamber music origins to this day. Concertmaster Agnes Stradner unites the core members of the ensemble in diverse instrumentations for highlights of baroque chamber music. The Bach Consort Wien’s Easter concerts, which have been broadcast worldwide by ORF, 3sat and numerous other television stations since 2014, as well as the music documentary Bach to the Roots about Dubrovsky’s extensive research on the baroque roots of traditional South American music, have received particular international attention.
