Orquesta Barroca de Granada
The Orquesta Barroca de Granada (The Granada Baroque Orchestra) is a formation founded in 2007 by initiative of the harpsichordist Darío Moreno, who has since become the musical conductor with the objective of disclosing the repertoire of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. To do this, he has developed an important musicological work not only from the point of view of the sources but from the organology, interpreting original versions of the works (both known and unpublished) with copies of the instruments suited to each century. Regarding the members of the Orquesta Barroca de Granada, it is important to emphasize their experience in historical interpretation, having formed part of assemblies specializing in the category of the European Union Baroque Orchestra, The Royal Academy of Baroque Music Orchestra, the Linden Baroque Orchestra, the Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla, the Eternal Music of Bratislava or the International Baroque players. It is also important to note that many of the members include in their curriculum the experience of having worked under the direction of the likes of specialists as Fabio Biondi, Chistopher Hogwood, Rinaldo Alessandrini, Harry Chistopher, Frans Brüggen, Robert King or Tom Koopman. Since its inception, the Orquesta Barroca de Granada has invited conductors-concertmasters renowned in the field of early music, such as Peter Zajicek, Ángel Sampedro, Peter Biely, Ellen and Alfred Borderías Cañamero. It has also accompanied soloists in different programs of the category of Bob Van Asperen, David Hernández or Bart Vandewege. All of this work of historical recovery and musical interpretation has led the Orquesta Barroca de Granada to be invited to participate in courses such as “Francisco Guerrero” of Ronda, the Andalucian Circuit of Music, the “FEX” of the International Dance and Music Festival of Granada, the International Week of Organ in the same city, the Festival of Music “Villa de la Zubia”, the Sample of Ancient Music “Castillo de Aracena” or the Festival of Classical Music in Huesca.
