Five Boroughs Music Festival Presents 'Corónica: An Empire of Silver and Gold'

Five Boroughs Music Festival (5BMF) and GEMAS (Gotham Early Music Scene / Americas Society) present Corónica, a collective of musicians from Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Argentina and the US, in An EMPIRE of Silver and Gold on Monday, November 5, 2018 at 7:00pm at St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church.

Curated and led by Daniel Zuluaga, the program explores 18th-century vocal and instrumental pieces from Latin American manuscript sources, including works by Juan de Araujo, Andrés Flores, Joseph de Torres, & Juan Franzés Yribarren, and others. Zuluaga reconstructs musical archives from cathedrals in Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and Peru, woven together to provide an overview of music in Colonial Latin America.

Additional 5BMF performances in the 2018-19 season include the return of baroque virtuosi, Les Délices, in a new program entitled Songs Without Words on February 23 & 24; the award-winning all female Aizuri Quartet on March 22; a collaboration with pianist Martin Katz and the Brooklyn Art Song Society in Hugo Wolf: The Complete Mörike-Lieder on April 28, May 3 and 4; and concludes with two special programs celebrating LGBT composers and librettists in collaboration with the New York Festival of Song and the LGBT Community Center ("The Center") on June 11 and 25.

About Daniel Zuluaga
Two-time Juno-award nominee (Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences), Colombian lutenist and guitarist Daniel Zuluaga has been praised for his "rhythmic vitality and fine sense of color" (Washington Post), and for his "great inventiveness" as an accompanist (San Francisco Classical Voice). Based in Montréal, he performs regularly with leading orchestras in Canada and the United States, including Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Les Violons du Roy, L'Harmonie des Saisons, San Diego Bach Collegium, Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado, and Ensemble Caprice. An avid researcher, Zuluaga has published articles on the early history of the guitar and has won awards for musicological studies, including a Fulbright fellowship. Zuluaga is visiting faculty at the Universidad Central in Bogotá, Colombia, and holds a PhD in musicology from the University of Southern California (2014). He is currently preparing a Baroque guitar recording on the music of Henry François de Gallot.

About Corónica
The ensemble Corónica was born out of a deep interest in historical portraits woven into narrative storytelling, and the desire for a conversation about the complex historical realities and the beauty of music in Colonial Latin America. A collective of musicians from Canada, Colombia, Cuba, and the US, the ensemble takes its name from Felipe Guamán Poma de Ayala's 1615 massive chronicle entitled El primer nueva corónica i buen gobierno, a testimony of events past and guide to social fairness in the viceroyalty of Peru. The glowing reviews of the ensemble's premiere performances, as a project sponsored by the Bach Collegium San Diego, praised the ensemble's joyous, ebullient, and infectious approach, and its ability to achieve "something difficult and rare: transparency without thinness and a substantive sonic presence [...] without obscuring individual lines."
