Under the artistic direction of Raúl Mallavibarrena, Musica Ficta is renowned for its innovative interpretations of early music. The acclaimed Spanish ensemble returns to Seattle with music of the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim cultures of Moorish Spain. Prior to the religious expulsion of 1492, these three groups coexisted in Spain. Musica Ficta will highlight music of the Sephardic Jews, the “Cantigas de Santa Maria” of Alphonso X El Sabio, the villancicos of Diego Pisador, and improvisations with Ottoman-Turkish roots. Through these musical selections, the Valencia-based group will celebrate the culture — and history — of their home country. Musica Ficta is a founding member of the Association of Spanish Early Music Groups. A preconcert lecture begins at 7:00 p.m. Presented by: Early Music Guild, as part of the Early Music Guild International Series. Tickets: $45 general reserved seating; $40 seniors; $27 discounted side section; and $20 for ages 25 and under. Doors open: 6:30 p.m.
