New CD collaboration: Juan Sebastian Elkano (2019)
I’m proud to announce a new CD collaboration with Enrike Solinís & Euskal Barrokensemble: Juan Sebastian Elkano. The CD, a double album, has been just released by Jordi Savall’s label Alia Vox Diversa. Already available.
The star of this recording is recorder player, Vicente Parrilla, who has so consumed the model books that he can now speak their musical language with confidence and freedom and create truly modern performances. Parrilla should be considered among the most expressive and technically proficient modern recorder players.
From 2011 to June 2019, I have documented the activity of my recorder class on a dedicated website, and hope all the contents published during this time will remain online and available for consultation: among others, the audiovisual archive, the bibliography and a good number of articles. I would like to acknowledge my students for their excellent job during their education years in Seville, as well as for their great responsibility and commitment in carrying out their studies, very often with outstanding results. It has been a great satisfaction for me and a great learning experience. I think that, as a teacher, I have not always made it easy, but I am convinced that it has been worth it. Thank you all and see you soon!
In addition to that, I have recently moved to Switzerland, where I am still available for tuition, and am thrilled to announce that I will soon start teaching a few lessons at the Danish National Academy of Music (Syddansk Musikkonservatorium)’s Advanced Postgraduate Diploma as Recorder and Historical Improvisation professor.
