Christina Pluhar and L’Arpeggiata invite you on a musical cruise that will take you from Portugal to Turkey, following the coasts of Spain, Catalonia, Greece and Italy, caressed by the rocking of the waves and the captivating dialogue between traditional plucked instruments of the Mediterranean region – the qanun, saz, Greek lyre and lavta, the oud and Portuguese guitar – and the Baroque strings of L’Arpeggiata.
Mediterraneo is a musical exploration of the Mediterranean Sea. It features the fabulous voices of Misia, Nuria Rial, Vincenzo Capezzuto, Raquel Andueza and Katerina Papadopoulou who perform traditional tarantellas, sung in Greek. Those folk pieces were a custom in the Baroque era in the Greek-Albanian villages of Calabria. Join Christina Pluhar on this unique musical odyssey.
