Posted by Cristina Martí on August 30, 2011  |  Leave a comment

After the fantastic recent premiere of the opera in four acts, “Yo, Dalí”, by Xavier Benguerel, which was performed last June by the Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid and the Coro del Teatro de la Zarzuela conducted by Antonio Fauró, the reduced version is now avalable from Tritó. The same as another reduction that we published this summer, The Magic Opal, by Albéniz, you can rent the full score of the opera or acquire this version for voices, choir and piano.

On continuation we would like to offer a short news item televised by RTVE on the occasion of the premiere, where you can listen to Benguerel himself discussing his work.

On Monday 23 March, the Orquesta de Cadaqués ensemble, under the baton of Alejandro Posada, interpreted a programme that included three fundamental works by the composers Xavier Benguerel (Hexagrama), Ernest Martínez Izquierdo (Norte-Sur) and Jesús Rueda (Chamber concerto no 2).

These three works, written in very different languages, present part of the current Spanish music scene.
