Music and Dance from Spain

Tonight, I went to see a recital of Music & Dance from Spain's Golden Age.

Musicians at the Spanish Gate: Christa Patton, Baroque harp, bagpipes; Dongmyung Ahn, Baroque violins; Christopher Morrongliello, lutes & Baroque guiter, The New York Historical Dance Company; Dorrie Olsson & Kaspar D. Mainz performed.

In the Renaissance and early Baroue periods, Spain was a dominant European power, and a leader in explorations of new territories all over the world. Spain's empire, under Philip II in the late 16th century, extended to Italy, Germany and the Netherlands. This was also a time of excellence in literature, music and the visual arts.

It was the first time for me to see music and dance from Spain's Goldern Age, and I enjoyed their excellent performances. Bravo!! Bravo!!
