The image empire, or the image of the empire
Pepe Rey presents the concert "Music in the court of Charles V"
Charles V was aware of sound’s ability to shape the Emperor’s image. The iconography and testimonies from the period allow us to know precisely which kinds of music accompanied the monarch on each occasion, from the sounds of the minstrels, who projected his image in public appearances, to the works performed by the Flemish chapel, as well as the pieces that were used to celebrate victories, coronations and treaties.
