Tono "Ya no les pienso pedir"

Raquel Andueza and La Galanía (Jesús Fernández Baena, tiorba; Manuel Vilas, harp; and Alfredo Barrales, viola da gamba)

Tono "Ya no les pienso pedir", from Fortunas de Andrómeda y Perseo by ¿Juan Hidalgo? and Pedro Calderón de la Barca

This tono comes from Fortunas de Andrómeda y Perseo, a fable by Pedro Calderón de la Barca premiered at the Coliseo del Buen Retiro de Madrid in 1653. The scene depicts Danae singing to alleviate her sadness; hence the work follows the conventions of the Italian lament. Andueza’s exquisite and subtle phrasing is accompanied by the improvised textures of the continuo performed by La Galanía.
