On the staircase of the Troja Chateau in the outskirts of Prague, the venue of this exceptional concert, the Titans battle with Ancient gods while inside the baroque villa the imperial Habsburg and Polish armies are depicted in combat with the Turks. Versailles during the reign of Louis XIV was occupied by different clashes, like that between French and Spanish music. This mutual testing of strength and influence had the king’s blessing since the Sun King married María Teresa, originally form El Escorial in the heart of Spain. Enrike Solinís, the musical mage from Spain – or more precisely from Bilbao in the Basque country – is thus perfectly qualified to tell us about the Pyrenean rhythms in Versailles. Besides his baroque guitar, he had at hand his Euskal Barrokensemble whose exotic name of can be easily made out if we know that euskal means “Basque”. Dantza, of course, is “dance” in that ancient tongue.
