  • In this year’s edition, the concerts are expanded from four to six, embracing the transitional period. The culture department of Inca Town Hall is organising the Inca International Baroque Music Festival (fimbo’23) in conjunction with the Teatro Principal de Inca and in collaboration with the Es Convent Foundation and the Asociación Cultural Música Antigua de Caimari (Ancient Music Cultural Association of Caimari). The second edition of the cycle, directed by Tomeu Seguí Campins, will cover such outstanding figures as Bach, Vivaldi and Handel. Unlike last year, this year there will also be demonstrations of music from the Renaissance and the period of transition from the Renaissance to the Baroque.

The second Festival de Música Barroca

“The aim is for people to be able to understand the reason for the baroque, so this year we are offering the spectator a journey along the path leading up to the explosion of this period,” says the cycle’s director, Tomeu Seguí. That is why this year two concerts are dedicated to the stylus phantasticus, a very important stylistic formula towards the Baroque.

Thus, within the framework of fimb’23, the capital of Raiguer will host six concerts, which will be held in two different venues: the Teatro Principal of Inca and the church of Santa Maria la Major. “After last year’s success, we are again opting for these two venues, considering that they are very suitable musically speaking,” Seguí adds.

Next, on Friday the 24th of February at 7 pm, the Teatro Principal of Inca will be the venue for “Suonare Fantasie”, with Serena Leonardi (viola da gamba and Renaissance flute) and Tomeu Seguí (harpsichord) as the protagonists. Tickets cost 12 euros and are available at

On Sunday the 26th of February, at 6 pm in Santa Maria la Major, the “Norbert Itrich” organ concert with free admission will be held. On March, Sunday 5, at the same time and place, “Trio” will be performed by Alessandro Milesi (organ and harpsichord), Anna Camporini (baroque cello) and Giacomo Coletti (baroque violin). It will also be free of charge.

Subsequently, on Sunday 12 March, at 6 p.m. in Santa Maria la Major, “La Serenissima, sonate Veneziane” will be performed by Accademia Hermans, with open access.

Finally, on Sunday the 19th of March at 8 pm, the Teatro Principal of Inca will host the closing concert of the Festival de Música Barroca 2023. Entitled “Insight Lucrezia”, it will feature Antonella Cilento. On this occasion, the ticket costs 15 euros and can be purchased on the website of the Principal.

“We are very proud to host, once again this year, such an ambitious festival that combines international agents with top local and Inca proposals. With this second edition, we hope to consolidate this unmissable event for lovers of music and culture in our city, and that we can celebrate it every year,” says Alice Weber, Inca City Council’s Councillor for Culture.

Finally, it should be noted that the image illustrating the poster for fimbo’23 has been created by the Mallorcan artist Joan Lacomba and is entitled “Ritmes”. The festival also enjoys the collaboration of VIVA hotels, which cover the musicians’ accommodation.
