Apollo Ensemble & Sofia Pedro, soprano – 'Feliz Navidad'

Spanish baroque music for Christmas in the 13th century Mariakerk – Bears

Festive, exuberant and tender.

In Spanish Christmas traditions, many cantatas have been preserved for a small instrumentation with one soloist, oboe, two violins and basso continuo. These are very appealing cantatas that are rarely performed. Festive, exuberant and yet tender music by Juan Francés de Iribarren, José de Nebra and Joseph de Torres.

Musicians: Sofia Pedro soprano and guitar

Apollo Ensemble: Robert de Bree – oboe ; David Rabinovich and Daphne Oltheten – violin; Thomas Oltheten – bassoon; Marion Boshuizen – harpsichord/organ

Sofia Pedro, born in Lisbon, graduated with honours from the Amsterdam Conservatory, where she studied Early Music Singing with Xenia Meijer. She obtained her bachelor's degree in Classical Singing at the same institution, in the class of Sasja Hunnego. She was a finalist in the Rotary Club Foundation's 9th Classical Singing Competition, in Portugal, and has been invited as a soloist to perform at the Abu Gosh Festival and in solo recitals in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa (Israel). Sofia took masterclasses with Dame Emma Kirkby, Isabel Rey, Claron McFadden, Ira Siff, Alexander Oliver, John Potter and Elena Dumitrescu Nentwig. She performed numerous roles in operas and was a soloist in Mozart's Requiem and Handel's Messiah, among others.
