L'Estro d'Orfeo

L

Founded by Leonor de Lera, L’Estro d’Orfeo is an ensemble that specialises in instrumental music of the 17th century, making use of period instruments and with a historically informed approach, in line with the aesthetics of the time.

It takes its name and inspiration from the greek legend of Orpheus. Son of the god Apollo, god of the music and the arts; and Calliope, the muse of poetry and eloquence; Orpheus inherited from them the gift of music and poetry. As Apollo was considered the best musician amongst the gods, so Orpheus was considered the best musician amongst the mortals.

By dint of his music and singing, he could charm all living things and even the mountainous rocks. He had the ability to appease and coax the wild beasts; the birds, moved by the sound of his music, would fall under a spell and stop flying; the trees would unearth their roots to move closer and crowd around him and the rivers would arrest their course to listen to his singing. There was neither a god nor mortal that could withstand his strains.

Taking Orpheus as its inspiration and following the ideals of the baroque period, the ensemble L’Estro d’Orfeo endeavours to invite its audiences to take a journey through the wide variety of emotions that music can present.
