PLUCKED STRING ORCHESTRA ISAAC ALBÉNIZ
Juan Antonio Jiménez Salas, conductor

 

The plucked string in the Baroque

 

The repertory selected by the plucked string orchestra Isaac Albéniz allows us to understand how to perform Baroque works using original instruments from our country (Spanish guitar and bandurria) which are intimately related to the instruments for which these works were originally written (mandolin and Baroque guitar). The result is a magnificent combination of the original work and the sonority of some special instruments, such as the bandurria and its family, which have been misunderstood in elite music.

Plucked string orchestra Isaac Albéniz. This orchestra was created in Torreperogil in 1990 with the aim of recovering the 18th-century boleros of the district of La Loma and accompanying folk groups of this area. Later on, the orchestra focused on spreading the plucked string music wherever its presence was requested. Its repertoire consists of a variety of works arranged by its director, including zarzuela, Baroque and Classical music, as well as contemporary pieces. They have participated in encounters throughout the Iberian Peninsula, have performed on Canal Sur TV, and have participated in the recording Villancicos Populares de Jaén. They organize and host the encounter of plucked string orchestras of Torreperogil (XXIV edition in 2019). The orchestra has been conducted by Juan Antonio Jiménez Salas from its foundation.
