Un Camino de Santiago – On the Way of St. James
Wednesday August 6th – 21:00 – Valloire church
For the pilgrims on their way to St. James, music was both a source of entertainment and a means to exalt their faith. Pilgrimages were thus often an opportunity for rich musical exchanges between those travellers from every corner of Europe and the inhabitants of the regions they passed through. The oldest pieces of music have almost all been lost. However, from the 16th century onwards, texts, sometimes with the corresponding scores, were recorded in song-books, fortunately preserved until our times. Many of these texts glorify James the Apostle, the miracles he performed and his powerful intercession with Christ. Others reflect aspects of the pilgrims’ everyday life. These books also contain very learned musical compositions, such as those written by the masters of the cathedral in St. James. Interestingly enough, some of these songs include a good many variants, offering proof of their large circulation among pilgrims even from remote horizons.
Let us now travel the Way of St. James, through 17th-century music !
The phoenix– in Italian la fenice – such is the name chosen for this group of musicians eager to convey their passion for 17th-century music. As the legendary bird rising from the ashes, this music is recovering its extraordinary vitality. From its very start, the ensemble garnered two international first prizes, an achievement heralding the brilliant career in store for them. The recordings by La Fenice are regularly rewarded with the highest distinctions.
La Fenice is in residence at Auxerre. The ensemble is supported by the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication (DRAC Bourgogne), the city of Auxerre, the Conseil Régional de Bourgogne, the Conseil Général de l’Yonne, and his two sponsors : Lincet and Société Générale.
A recorder player by training, Jean Tubéry first plays the cornetto within various ensembles of high renown, before devoting himself to choir direction. In 1990 he founds the ensemble “La Fenice”, whose abundant discography provides evidence of his predilection for 17th-century music, and more particularly for Italian works of that period. At the head of his ensemble for over twenty years now, Jean Tubéry has established himself as a prominent figure in the French and also European musical landscape.
Arianna Savall Figueras
The daughter of Jordi Savall and Montserrat Figueras, she starts studying harp and voice at a very early age. She makes her debut as a singer in Barcelona in 2002, in the unforgettable production of Monterverdi‘s Orfeo conducted by her father. She then contributes to innumerable concerts and recordings, either as a soloist or with her parents, emerging as an internationally acclaimed artist, the “Fairy with a harp” according to enthusiastic music critics.
