Falla Ensemble is a group specialising in contemporary music that focuses its repertoire on scores composed in the last hundred years.
The Ensemble is built around Manuel de Falla’s Concerto for harpsichord and five instruments. This work and its composer could be more than enough of an excuse for the creation of the Ensemble, but it would be unfair to forget the other protagonist of this project: the harpsichord, an instrument unjustly forgotten in current creation, and whose special sonority can contribute a great deal to contemporary music.
The Ensemble is made up of a group of first-class Spanish musicians, among whom we can highlight the harpsichordist Silvia Marquez, one of the best in our country, and with great international recognition.
The repertoire they work with is very wide, covering works from the first half of the 20th century (such as: Manuel de Falla, Eliot Carter, Darius Milhaud, Bela Bartok…) to the most current repertoire, including world premieres by Sergio Blardony, Samuel Aguilar, Nino Díaz…
Jacobo Durán-Loriga – Jabardillo contrapuntístico
Samuel Aguilar – Some small, little, tiny thoughts
Kaija Saariaho – Jardin secret II for harpsichord and tape
Darius Milhaud – Sonata for violin and harpsichord
Enric Palomar – Concerto di camara* *Concerto di camara*
