From the spanish “Siglo de Oro”, writer, vihuelist and composer Luys de Milan sends us a message of freedom, originality and refinement.One wonders how, centuries later, this message can still be so alive. Milan composes his Fantaisies, his Pavanes, his Tientos to express his “faculties of musical imagination and ingenuity”
Here rubato, idiomaticity and invention reign supreme; no trace of austere compositional thought or imposed playing technique… Just pure balance and fluidity. The score stimulates the freedom, virtuosity and musicality of the performer. And this music, so light and carefree, is nonetheless infused with the heritage of several centuries of musical Hispanism.
