⚠️ CANCELLATION ⚠️
Due to the measures taken as part of the health crisis, we regret to announce the cancellation of the Alarcón / accentus / Cappella Mediterranea Splendours of Roman Polyphony concert originally scheduled for December 17, 2020.

 
Conductor Leonardo García Alarcón invites us to explore the music of Gregorio Allegri, composer of the celebrated Miserere, and Alessandro Scarlatti’s “Italian Orpheus”, while introducing us to the splendid work of Giovanni Giorgi, via his Mass in F Major. Alternating legendary music and rarities, this spatialized concert, like an oratorio, reveals the sumptuousness and radiant, virtuoso scoring of Italian polyphony.
