Description

The Cuenca 'Semanas de Musica Religiosa' Festival is one of the oldest festivals on the Iberian Peninsula. The first festival, in 1954, marked the foundation of one of the most successful cultural events ever produced. Programs have remained faithful to the theme of the Festival since its inception and are based on three main lines: 1. Performance of Religious Heritage. These works may be ecclesiastical or not, vocal, instrumental or theatrical. 2. Recovery of Heritage. There is still an enormous amount of music lying dormant in libraries, archives, monasteries, cathedrals, etc. 3. Creation of Heritage. Since its beginning, works have been commissioned from the main, representative composers of contemporary Spanish music, including Ernesto and Rodolfo Halffter, Joaqufn Rodrigo, Frederico Mompou, Oscar Esplá, Cristobal Halffter, Carmelo Bernaola, Tomás Marco, José Ramón Encinar, Mauricio Sotelo, and many more.
