De Lugares y Órganos remains faithful to its objectives of promoting the creative potential of the organists and ensembles working in our country, as well as enhancing the sound qualities and possibilities of our historic organs. In this way, the programme once again features proposals that cross epochs and styles, in the search for subtle combinations and instrumental arrangements of timeless music. On this occasion, Alejandra Docente, one of the most prized organists on the Galician music scene, together with the members of the Quinteto Invento, a chamber music group made up of talented professional performers, will perform a varied programme of pieces in which the multiple sonorities of the pipe organ contrast and alternate with the brilliant sound of the wind quintet.
Adapting or reinterpreting different works, vocal or orchestral, by a group of wind instruments, is a practice that connects us with past times and with instruments such as the cornets, sacabuxas, flutes or baixóns of the Renaissance menestreis, and also with the orbs, clarinets, horns and bassoons of the Harmonienmusik of the 18th century. The former adapted polyphonic vocal pieces, sacred or profane. The latter did the same with the most popular repertoire of the time, such as the most famous opera arias. Continuing this centuries-old tradition, the music of the Invento quintet, together with the organ, will make the air of the University Church vibrate with contrapuntal works ranging from the Renaissance to the 20th century, mirror versions with arrangements of vocal and instrumental pieces for wind quintet and organ, and even joint versions for ancient and modern instruments.
