Juego de Siempre - Betty Olivero

Created in 1994, Betty Olivero's Juego de Siempre is a piece for mezzo-soprano and seven players. In it, Olivero sets twelve Ladino (Spanish-Jewish) melodies and texts drawn from the rich heritage of music and poetry produced during golden age of Jewish residence in Spain, which came to an abrupt end with the expulsion of 1492. Most recent performances were at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana, Siena, Italy, in 2013 and in 2014.
