El Concierto EspañolPublicado: 12 enero, 2011
The orchestra El Concierto Español, conducted by Emilio Moreno, was born in the year 2000 with the primary goal of recovering the Spanish musical heritage with historical accuracy and with Spanish musicians. It has performed more than fifty works, by Spanish composers or otherwise relating to Spain, most of which were world premieres. The orchestra doesn’t neglect other repertoires, to the point of premiering a previously unknown work by W. A. Mozart, the motet “Omni die.”
It has participated in the most prestigious festivals in Spain and around the world.
Standouts among its most recent discography: the opera Il piú bel nome by Antonio Caldara, La Tirana contra Mambrú, dedicated to the Spanish tonadilla from the late 18th Century, and the zarzuela Iphigenia in Thrace by J. Nebra, all of which recorded for Glossa.
