In the early 17th century, in order to express complex emotions such as love, musicians and poets inspired by the classic historic past, searched for semanticity about which Zarlino had already talked on his Institutioni harmoniche (1558). Later, Vincenzo Galilei set up in 1581 the basis on which ‘the new music’ would be built, relating words and sounds to the emotional world of the listener. And from that very moment, the Theory of the Affections stopped being just a theory and turned into a language that gets the spectator involved in the effects. These musicians and poets who provided their words at the service of music, developed a real intellectual and emotional game. They managed to delve into the intricacies of love, fighting against the annoyance and despair of rejection. Who better than the continuous dialogue between musician and poet to express it? This is the first recital of young Spanish countertenor, Pedro Perez.
