A musical panorama from the days of Emperor Maximilian I until Emperor Karl V
With music by Heinrich Isaak up to Cristóbal de Morales
When Charles VI set out from Barcelona to Vienna in 1711 to become Emperor, he had to leave the Catalans to their fate. It was then that the fuse for the conflict, which broke out so dramatically again in 2017, was laid out. For the Catalan Jordi Savall, the history of Spain is just as present as his music is. Habsburg politics are reflected everywhere: from the “last knight” Maximilian to Charles V., who reigned over “the empire on which the sun never sets”. For the finale of the Austrian styriarte, Savall recounts histories of the Habsburgs from a Catalan perspective, from Emperor Maximilian I to Emperor Karl V. and with music from Heinrich Isaac up to Cristobál de Morales.
