Festival Internacional Cervantino / México

Two South American composers in a dialogue with the baroque arts. Argentine Oscar Strasnoy (1970) contrasts the optimism and brightness of J. S. Bach's Wedding Cantata BWV 202 with Franz Kafka's desperate vision of love, inventing a hybrid sound and lexical temporality. Voces del Primero Sueño by MexicanJorge Torres Sáenz (1968) intensifies locutions by poet Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (1651-1695) by reconfiguring the typical range of the Baroque style, going from past tense to present reflections.
