Last Friday I’ve shooting the promo pictures for Trio per l’Art, a wonderful chamber group formed by Gaëtane Duynslaeger (cello), Helena Ginès (piano) and David Olmedo (violin).
One year later I came back to beautiful Greece, in a new sailing trip. This time in the Ionian Sea, from Préveza to Ithaca, to Paxos, and back.
It is difficult to assimilate so much beauty and even more, to try to express it with the camera.
Yesterday evening I was pleased to present my book “músics” in the wonderful art déco building of the Conservatori Municipal de Música de Barcelona. My friend Jordi Soley did an interesting speech about art and artists, and the talented members of Quartet Clandestí offered us a couple of pieces by Mendelssohn and Dvorak.
Funny video & photo session with the great Mrs. Jones Trio, preparing their Tour 2019.
Mrs. Jones Trio are Loreto Muñoz Osorio, voice, Felipe Contreras on double bass and Joel Moreno on guitar. Lots of swing!
After almost 5 years portraying musicians, I have gathered a selection of 66 portraits in músics, an 80 page book, excellently printed by Nova Era.
The book will be presented at the Conservatori del Bruc in Barcelona on 16 May at 8 pm. We will also have the participation and talent of the Quartet Clandestí musicians who will perform works by Mendelssohn and Dvorak.
I’ve been shooting Orla’s portrait this morning. Orla is a young Irish girl who is working to become an actress. I'm sure she'll make it.
We spent a nice afternoon with those three music geniuses, shooting portraits of all their possible combinations.
Tempus Trio are Maria Tió, violin, Ricard Rovirosa, piano and Ferran Bardolet, cello.
Last sunday I shot Eduard Jener portrait.
Eduard has been my neighbour for many years. He is the undisputed cultural chronicler of Sant Cugat. During the last 25 years he has written critiques of all the concerts, plays and performing arts in general, celebrated in the city, with a precise and very personal style.
I know Santi since we were small kids. We went at the same school, many many years ago.
Santi Aubert was born in Olot. He studied with Maria Massià and Gerard Claret in Barcelona. He entered the professional world combining very diverse activities, accompanying singers, recording a lot of advertising, film music and participating in plays.
He was a member of the Chamber Orchestra of the Palau de la Música Catalana and of the contemporary music group Bcn 216. He collaborated for about 15 years with the Barcelona and National Symphony Orchestra of Catalonia and the Symphony Orchestra of the Gran Teatre del Liceu.
Towards 1985, he began his interest in ancient music, a field that has become his main current activity, having collaborated with numerous baroque orchestras, both in Europe and Spain and with several groups of chamber music.
He is currently artistic director of the Orquestra Barroca Catalana and since 1993 he has been a member of Le Concert des Nations directed by Jordi Savall.
With these trainings he has performed throughout Spain, Europe, South America, the United States, Canada and Asia. He has been recorded by Astrée-auvidis, Glossa, Alia Vox, K 617, TVC, Catalunya Ràdio, TVE and Radio Nacional de España and several European television and radio stations.
