El Afecto Ilustrado was born in 2012, intended as a groundbreaking and versatile chamber music ensemble whose philosophy is introduce audiences and bring them closer to historically informed performances of the repertoire from the 17th to the 19th centuries in a tangible and intimate way.
El Afecto Ilustrado uses relatively unexplored concert formats and is formed by professional musicians who stand out in the national and international music scene. The group members, who regularly play in the top ensembles in the country, are involved in teaching or have successful solo careers, represent a compendium of ideas and views that turn the group’s projects into unique and inspiring experiences for the audience.
The aim of El Afecto Ilustrado consequently goes through introducing and broadcasting programmes of highly interpretative quality, historic accuracy and respect for the original sources, as a result of a detailed process of musical and historical research study.
While the European music of the 17th to the 19th centuries has an important place in the ensemble’s programming, the Spanish and Hispanic musical heritage of the same period remains one the fundamental pillars of the ensemble.
The recovery and promotion of this repertoire is paramount for El Afecto Ilustrado, as well as highlighting historical, cultural or social issues or facts which deserve special recognition by part of society, both locally in the Canaries and also in mainland Spain, Europe and Latin America.
El Afecto Ilustrado has taken part, among others, in concert cycles organized by the Biblioteca Nacional de España (BNE), Música Antigua de la Catedral de Valencia, Cidade da Cultura de Galicia-CDC, Sociedad Filarmónica de Vigo, Festival de música de cámara Bal y Gay de Lugo, Sociedad Filarmónica de Pontevedra, Música Sacra de S/C de Tenerife, Música de cámara de Villa de la Orotava, Universidad de Verano de la ULL, Música Antigua de la Casa de Colón in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Museo de Bellas Artes de S/C de Tenerife, Museo de Bellas Artes de A Coruña, Música Religiosa de Canarias and Real Academia Canaria de Bellas Artes (RACBA).
