María Cristina Kiehr & Ariel Abramovich

Seville, 7 December 1546. In the printing workshop of Juan de León, the first copies are finished of Tres libros de música en cifra para vihuela: a collection of music for vihuela, guitar and organ, compiled by Alonso Mudarra. With revolutionary tablature notation, works organised into suites, virtuoso glosas and lyrical fantasias, the publication was way ahead of its time. Ariel Abramovich and María Cristina Kiehr present a showcase of their favourites.


  • Alonso Mudarra

    Si me llaman a mi
    Israel, mira tus montes
    O, gelosia d’amanti
    Claros y frescos ríos
    Fantasía por el segundo tono
    Si por amar, el hombre
    Por ásperos caminos
    Conde Claros
    I tene al’ombra
    Fantasia por el primer tono
    Recuerde el alma dormida
    La vita fugge
    Hanc tua Penelope
    Dulces exuviae
    Ysabel, perdiste la tu faxa
    (from: Tres libros de música en cifra para vihuela, Seville 1546)

About the performers

Thanks to the magical way in which María Cristina Kiehr fell under the spell of the vocal repertoire of early music, she changed from her passionate and obsessive study of the violin to that of singing. From her birthplace in Tandil, and after two years initial studies in Buenos Aires, she went on to the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, a mecca for her chosen repertoire. As co-founder of the Daedalus Ensemble, the vocal quartet La Colombina, and the ensemble Concerto Soave with Jean-Marc Aymes, María Cristina has consolidated her musical identity which has also allowed her to explore other musical horizons.

Dazzled by a fantasy by composer Luys de Narváez, Ariel Abramovich decided - being still a teenager - to dedicate exclusively to the lute and vihuela repertoire of the 16th century, a decision he has maintained to this day without any regrets. In 1996 he moved to Switzerland to study with his teacher and mentor, Hopkinson Smith, at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. He has released several albums with a variety of musicians and is member of the ensemble Da Tempera Velha, dedicated to Medieval and early Renaissance Castillian repertoire.
