    Accademia del Piacere is the Andalucian based Early Music ensemble founded by viola da gambist Fahmi Alqhai. They specialise in the religious and secular music of the Renaissance and Baroque in Spain in general and in Andalucía in particular. Blue dips into their extensive recorded repertoire and finds that place where flamenco meets baroque. Music to warm a February chill - Monday - Thursday from 10pm
