Wellcome to ClasicaEs.
ClasicaEs is committed to the promotion and dissemination of lesser-known musical treasures in the Spanish classical repertoire.
Founded in Austria in 2015, ClassicaEs offers high-quality musical adventures that start with a theme, such as the works of Juan Ramón Jiménez and Miguel de Cervantes in our first two projects. Then we thoroughly research the repertoire around this theme and we put together an exceptional concert program. After we play this program for live audiences a few times, we go to the studio and record it. In doing so, we fulfill our mission to discover and divulge musical treasures in the Spanish classical repertoire.
Examples of the themes we explore include:
– the relationship between music and literature around a theme
– a composer’s complete works
– anniversaries and commemorations of writers and composers.
– new performances of previously recorded scores.
What distinguishes us is the quality of our projects, which we thoroughly research, select, analyze, and perform following the highest musical standards, some times working with living composers directly, such as with renowned Spanish Maestro Antón García Abril.
ClasicaEs offers the highest quality in sound, booklet, design, and photography in all its recordings. We produce our projects in Austria and Spain.
In order to make the lyrics of the songs we record accessible to audiences across the world (many of our select tracks score exceptional Spanish-language poems and literary works), our booklets and concert programs include translations into English and German. ClasicaEs aspires to serve classical music lovers all over the world.
