The Ensemble Allettamento debuts at Casa da Música with a program that covers the evolution of the repertoire for violin and cello throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. Entirely dedicated to Italian composers, the recital includes works that demonstrate the different discourses and dynamics that emerged between the two instruments during the Baroque period. Formed by Mario Braña and Elsa Pidre, the name of this project derives from the Allettamenti da Camera, by Valentini and Tessarini, which are among the first works written specifically for this formation. Connecting with the audience is one of the goals of the ensemble, which is, therefore, characterized by the intention of “allettare” – to please, seduce and move the listener's affections. The Ensemble Allettamento was awarded at the Gijón International Early Music Competition, earning praise from the audience and the critics.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Casa da Música implemented the following safety measures:
• Mandatory use of mask inside the building of Casa da Música;
• Hand hygiene;
• Compliance with social distancing rules.
Failure to comply with these measures prevents access to concerts, educational activities and guided tours held at Casa da Música.
You will find visible signs on the different routes and spaces of Casa da Música, as well as information regarding the rules of access, circulation and permanence, as well as the maximum capacity of the different spaces.
All customer service points are equipped with acrylic barriers for protection and demarcation on the floor of the mandatory distance. All spaces are equipped with hand sanitizer dispensers that visitors should use before the start of activities, the purchase of tickets and the guided tours, among others.
We reinforced our hygiene plan, particularly in the disinfection of surfaces and objects (sanitary facilities, counters, handrails, door handles, switches), and in the ventilation of spaces with greater circulation of people.
