Collegium Marianum prepares a new recording CACHUA SERRANITA for release

This new recording by Collegium Marianum combines in an original way traditional South American and Central European songs and dances with the music of G. Ph. Telemann and J. J. I. Brentner, for both of whom folk culture was a significant source of inspiration. The recording is characterized by the joy of making music and the improvisational skill of all the players involved.

“What led me to bring together two corners of the world that are so far apart was not only the thought of the suitcase in which the scores of the Baroque masters, including those of the much-loved Brentner, travelled to South America, but above all a passion for folk music and the discovery of ῾truly barbaric beauty᾿, as Telemann once said of the songs and dances of the Haná region. European missionaries were similarly captivated by the musicality of the indigenous peoples of present-day Bolivia and Peru,” says flutist Jana Semerádová of the new recording.
