The ensemble Solnegre


Solnegre works on the European musical repertoire of the XVI and XVII centuries with speciall attention to that of the catalan regions.

 

The inclussion of comments about the social and cultural context of the pieces is a distinctive characteristic of their concerts. By doing that they yearn to get close to a double goal: first, that the concert becomes an experience that goes beyond entertaniment to be something more significant and educative; and second, pointing to those contextual aspects and relating them with the music of the programme, they want to give tools to the audience to help them focus their attention in musical elements.

 

This pedagogic intention has spurred Solnegre to think of new ways of presenting music to the public rethinking some aspects of the classical concert format.
