Encounter - From Baroque to Bossa Nova - Il Festino 1st CD

What would happen if Monteverdi and some Baroque companions had travelled to South America? Or if Tom Jobim had to play his songs on a baroque guitar? Well, we decided to take this journey last year and the result was a recording of our first CD. The repertoire recorded is a combination of traditional Baroque songs and Latin American modern repertoire. The idea was to bring our own personal influences to the conventional way of playing baroque music as well as bringing a different colour to the instrumentation of some well known bossa nova and Latin American songs. The result was extremely good and it brings an exciting approach to the traditional way of performing some well know repertoire from different eras. Our main goal is to close the musical gap between old and new and make this music accessible to music lovers of all tastes! Here's how you can help: The CD has been recorded and we are now on the final stages of finalizing the mix, cover and booklet design, mastering and sending it to a plant for replication. Our idea is to pre-sell as many CDs as we can to allow us to finish this great project. No matter how much you invest, you will get your reward! We have 60 days to raise the money and this is how it works:IF WE REACH OUR GOAL OF £3000 * The project goes ahead * You receive your reward (good one!) IF WE DON'T REACH OUR GOAL OF £3000 * The project does NOT go ahead * You receive your money back [To sponsor, you'll need to first sign up (button at top right) for a free Crowdfunder account. If you have any questions please send us an email info@il-festino.com ] Our next concert is on the 9th March, at 19.30hs at the Bolivar Hall in London.

What would happen if Monteverdi and some Baroque companions had travelled to South America? Or if Tom Jobim had to play his songs on a baroque guitar?

Well, we decided to take this journey last year and the result was a recording of our first CD.

The repertoire recorded is a combination of traditional Baroque songs and Latin American modern repertoire. The idea was to bring our own personal influences to the conventional way of playing baroque music as well as bringing a different colour to the instrumentation of some well known bossa nova and Latin American songs.

The result was extremely good and it brings an exciting approach to the traditional way of performing some well know repertoire from different eras. Our main goal is to close the musical gap between “old and new “ and make this music accessible to music lovers of all tastes!
