Santi Aubert, new musician portrait. / by Toni Ricart


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.
