Duration:
1 hour
First broadcast:
Thursday 07 January 2010

Donald Macleod explores the little-known music of 17th and 18th-century Spain.

As a new generation of Spanish composers came of age and the influence of Italian forms strengthened, fierce debates raged about what constituted 'proper' Spanish music. Meanwhile, Spain was exporting a wealth of exotic dance styles to the rest of Europe.
