Ensemble Viscera | Program Two, 43rd Indianapolis Early Music Festival
Whips and Galleys, Ruffians and Thieves:
The Musical Underworld of the Jácara in 17th-Century Spain

Jacaras are ballads about the underworld of the ruffians, bravos, pimps, whores, pickpockets and swindlers that made up the small-time criminal underworld of 17th century Madrid and Seville.  What survives of these songs is mostly the text.  There are examples of the harmonic structure.  Viscera has combined these relics into a program of delightful music.  Who knew early music could be so earthy?

Ensemble Viscera, formed in 2002 as a plucked-string ensemble of lutes, early guitars, theorbo, bandora and cittern, forges an alloy of sounds and colors unique in the world of early music.  Mining the manuscript and printed sources of Renaissance and baroque music for lute and guitar ensemble, Ensemble Viscera's luscious, effervescent sonorities shine forth in pieces from surviving sources, the unwritten Renaissance and baroque traditions of improvisation, as well as arrangements of their own devising.
