Ramón Garay: Te Deum (1811)

This program offers a recovery of one of the most outstanding chapel masters at the service of the Cathedral of Jaén: the Asturian Ramón Garay. Known, above all, for his collection of ten symphonies and the subject of some previous premieres both at FeMAUB (where his Compendio sucinto de la revolución española was premiered in 2008) and at other festivals, his prolific corpus of sacred music, however, remained in darkness. The Te Deum for choir and orchestra, composed in the turbulent years of the French invasion (1811), admirably summarizes the characteristics of this composer’s music.

Coro Ciudad de Jaén. It was founded in May 2016. It was born in the context of  the Professional Conservatory of Music Ramón Garay in Jaén. It is mostly made up of professional musicians and music students and intends to disseminate choral and symphonic-choral music. The CCJ first appearance was at FeMAUB with a monographic concert dedicated to the music of Antonio Vivaldi. The Choir was founded and firstly conducted by Ángel Luis Molina, but currently it is leaded by Belén Díaz, professional musician and conservatory teacher.

Orquesta del Conservatorio Superior de Música de Jaén. It has its origin in 2010, the date of creation of this educational centre. This training project is part of the subjects Grandes agrupaciones and Música de conjunto, so the staff evolves each year, always keeping quality and excellence as artistic premises. Its performance activity is constant and they has had directors such as Jordi Mora, Eduardo Portal, Ángel Luis Pérez, Lucía Marín, Ángel López Carreño or Mario Ortuño, among others. Every year the orchestra holds its traditional Encuentros Orquestales, in which conductors of artistic and pedagogical renown are invited, and which serve as a welcome for students from all over the province who wish to start their higher studies in music. It is also worth mentioning the participation of the orchestra in the recording of the Himno Provincial de Jaén –with music by Santiago Báez and lyrics by Miguel Hernández–, the recording of the official tune Jaén, paraíso interior –with music by Alejandro Gómez–, the performance of the Requiem by M. Haydn in the Capilla de El Salvador de Úbeda, or the performance of the Requiem by W. A. Mozart in the frameword of the Noche en blanco de Jaén. Currently the orchestra is directed by Pablo Fernández Rojas.
