Capriccio Stravagante & Cantoría

Despite a warning, a knight walks into darkness, facing his doom. It is the story of Canto a mi Caballero, a song that once captivated the entire Iberian Peninsula. Where this mystical folk repertoire and Franco-Flemish style counterpoint meet, Capriccio Stravagante discovered superb music: religious and secular works by Antonio de Cabezón and Cristóbal de Morales, here virtuosically mixed with the most beautiful melodies and verses from the Spanish Renaissance.

About the performers

Capriccio Stravagante is harpsichordist Skip Sempé’s ensemble. Since the 1980s it has built up a broad repertoire, working as a chamber music ensemble but also as a large-scale Renaissance and Baroque orchestra. The formation has always sought out the very best musicians of the youngest generation. The ensemble was artist in residence during the Utrecht Early Music Festival in 2010.  
Harpsichordist and conductor Skip Sempé blends nonchalance and virgour both in his solo appearances and those with his own ensemble Capriccio Stravagante. Paradizo, Sempé’s own CD label, has released CDs of his own ensemble, as well as several solo programmes of French, English, German and Italian harpsichord music.

Cantoría is a vocal ensemble from Catalonia specialising in the performance of vocal polyphony from the Spanish Golden Age. Their youthful freshness has become characteristic of this ensemble, which stands on the threshold of an international career. During the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht 2024, which is dedicated to the Spanish city of Seville, Cantoría is Artist in Residence.
