“The Last Ship”
A musical journey from Italy via Brazil to Timor – in the footsteps of Magellan’s circumnavigation (1519–1522), based on the report by Antonio Pigafetta “The first journey around the world”

On August 10, 1519, one of the greatest adventures of mankind began. Fernando Magellan, a seafarer in the service of the Spanish Crown, set out with his fleet for the first circumnavigation of the world. Also on board was the writer Antonio Pigafetta, who, unlike Magellan, survived the expedition. Pigafetta’s famous travelogue now forms the basis for the music-literary evening “The Last Ship” presented by the Portuguese baroque ensemble Sete Lágrimas on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Magellan’s death.

Vocal and instrumental pieces from Spain and Italy, but also from distant countries such as China, can be heard on the sound journey from Seville via Argentina and Brazil to India and the Moluccas Islands. And on board this tour are of course Pigafetta’s memories, which tell of this multi-year endeavor, which was also marked by hunger and death.
