This program is a tribute to the figure of El Greco since in 2014 Centenary of the death of the famous painter is marked IV. It tries to recreate the sonorous surroundings of the artist, from Byzantine melodies of s.IX, making reference to his Greek origin, Italian music of the s. XVI, since it finally spent one season in Venice and music of the great polifonistas of the century of Spanish Gold that recall their long years of stay in Toledo.
