Among the rich holdings housed in the National Library of Spain, one can find several collections of sheet music, both printed and manuscript, many of which are unique exemplars that can't be found elsewhere. The earliest collections come from the old Royal Library, founded in 1712 by Philip V of Spain within a French-inspired cultural program that included the creation of the Royal Academy of the Spanish Language, as well as the History and Fine Arts Academies.
This CD presents a selection of works from the pre-1800 instrumental music collection preserved in the National Library of Spain, here recorded for the first time, and that can also be taken as a sample of what was heard in the Spain of the Enlightenment in the second half of the 18th century.
