Antonio Soler was the most important composer of Spanish music in the 18thCentury. This documentary film introduces us to the life and work of Soler who lived as a monk in the Escorial Monastery. The story is set forth by musical historians and by some of the most important Spanish contemporary interpreters of Soler’swork. These contemporary musicians, some of them taking exquisite care with Soler’soriginal scores, some of them breaking loose in flights of fancy, all pay tribute to a man who, from his cold cell in the Escorial, gave the world luminous examples of music composed in the best Spanish tradition.
