Iberian Mystics: The Music of Three Faiths

Iberian Mystics:
The Music of Three Faiths

December 3-5, 2003
Georgetown University
The Kreeger Museum
Washington, DC

At a moment in history when we urgently need models of multi-cultural cooperation, the PostClassical Ensemble presents an evening of music, visual art, dance, and the spoken word. Sephardic songs sung by Flory Jagoda, the ecstatic polyphony of Tomás Luis de Victoria, the mystic poetry of Juan de la Cruz and Teresa de Jesús, and the sinuous arabesques of the Arab ‘Ud celebrates Spain’s music of three faiths. Also on the program Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo, with its ardent Moorish echoes and gypsy strains, and four Sephardic songs colorfully re-imagined by the contemporary Puerto Rican composer Roberto Sierra, revisit Andalusia’s magic confluence of cultures and religions.

Produced in collaboration with Woodstock Theological Center, the Middle East Institute, and the Spanish Ministry of Culture.
