During the Renaissance, the musical repertoire, open to improvisation, was subject to a diverse range of reinventions. ArFolia Libra follows in the footsteps of this musical freedom and takes on one of the most famous themes in the history of music, the Folia, which has been passed down through the ages and the continents. A theme which the musicians will develop through several sequences of variations, from the most courteous to the least reverent, a novel series of propositions and appropriations of a music which is waiting to be conquered anew.
