Trilogy of Tonadillas, by Blas de Laserna

1/13/2016

The Spain of the past criticises the Spain of the present. The Spain of the present complains about the inheritance received. And, in between, a bride and groom with an uncertain future plan their wedding. Costumbrismo (a literary style dealing with typical regional and local customs) and social criticism characterise tonadillas, a dramatic-musical genre that flourished in Spain at the end of the eighteenth century. This production revives three tonadillas by one of the most highly reputed composers of his time: Blas de Laserna.
