Europe dances in Spanish: dances from La Spagna to Spagnoletta

Pepe Rey presentes the concert "La Spagna in Dance"

In his introduction to the fourth concert in the series Musical clichés: visions of Spain, Pepe Rey describes the contexts in which dances associated with the Spanish identity were performed, as well as the ways in which they were transmitted. Among the dances discussed are La Spagna, the Spagnoletta and Canario. This confirms the existence of a world of dance common to the aristocratic sectors of society of the whole of Europe, in contrast to the kaleidoscopic world of popular dance.
