The iconic painting "Las Meninas" ["The Misses of Honor"] by the great Spanish painter Diego Velázquez Diego Velasquez becomes the occasion for an unusual journey into the musical universe of the 17th century, and specifically during the reign of Philip IV, one of most famous art-loving monarchs of his time.

Guides, four Greek musicians dedicated to old music: Theodora Baka (mezzo-soprano), Alexandros Ioannou (percussion), Dimitris Tigas (violin, baroque guitar) and Theodoros Kitsos (baroque guitars, art). The concert Las meninas: the music behind the table, which will feature works by Hidalgo [Hidalgo], Marín [Marin] and Sanz [Sant], is broadcast live on free live streaming from the Megaron website and fb on Tuesday, March 9 at 8:30 p.m.

The long reign (1621–1665) of Philip IV was characterized by the political, military and economic decline of Spain and social misery. However, his reign was characterized by an incomparable flourishing of letters and arts, as he was a great lover of theater and music as well as an enthusiastic collector of works of art. Many of the great creators of the Spanish golden age found a home in his courtyard, with the names of Pedro Calder den de la Barca [Diero Calderρόνn de la Barca] and Diego Velázquez standing out. But what was the music that dressed up Calderon's performances or that Velázquez listened to when composing some of his most important works?

The program is based on works by three composers who offered - directly or indirectly - their services to Philip: Juan Hidalgo [1614–1685), court musician and close associate of Calderόn, José Marín ( c.1619–1699), cantor of the royal chapel, and Gaspar Sanz (c. 1640–1710), the most famous guitarist of his time, associated with Don Juan José de Austria [John of Joseph Austria, the Younger], the illegitimate son of Philip he had with the actress María Calderon [Maria Calderon].

Works by Juan Hidalgo, José Marín, Gaspar Sanz
