SalonEra: Phoenix of Mexico

  • October 18, 2021, 7:30 pm EST

Bassoonist Catalina Guevara Víquez Klein, violinist Karin Cuellar Rendon (last seen in SalonEra’s popular Latin Baroque episode), and soprano Raquel Winnica Young each have a personal connection to “The Phoenix of Mexico,” Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (1648-1695). In this special episode, the three musicians explore the legacy of de la Cruz as a poet, composer, and protofeminist through new remote collaborations and conversation.
