Tonos del Sur

Sarah Cranor, director

Violinist Sarah Cranor leads Tonos del Sur in an exploration of Baroque and Classical music from Latin America on period instruments with works for instruments, voice, and mixed ensembles. Framed by performances of the well-known Quechuan hymn Hanacpachap Cussicuinin, the program also features works from present-day Bolivia, Guatemala, Brazil and Mexico, including a newly-published collection of pieces from the Durango Cathedral written by Santiago Billoni (c. 1700–c.1753). Songs such as the anonymous A quien no mueve dolor from Bolivia demonstrate the profound emotional depth of music from this period and provide contrast to lively, celebratory pieces such as Oygan una Xacarilla by Guatemalan-born composer Rafael Antonio Castellanos (1765–1791). The concert also includes a rare performance of an improvised chaconne set based loosely on Spanish composer Juan Arañés’s La Vida Bona (1624). This concert is free and open to the public.
