Release Date: 01/01/01

In late 1989, guitarist Sergi Vicente formed an ensemble with eight of his students, with the intention of enriching their academic studies. As time went on, the ensemble became a much more ambitious project and developed into the 25-chair Guitar Orchestra it is today. So far, more than 70 guitarists have passed through the orchestra's ranks, many of them going on to impressive careers as soloists.Even though the orchestra now tours widely, performing at festivals and throughout Spain and Europe, it maintains a close connection with the place of its inception, the Conservatorio Superior de Música del Liceo in Barcelona. All members of the orchestra are teachers, graduates or master-level students of the Conservatorio.This prestigious musical institution also serves as a regular headquarters for the orchestra as its members rehearse and work there on a weekly basis.The material that the orchestra performs is the fruit of a constant labor of investigation and adaptation.The result is a varied and novel repertoire, made up of works by Baroque composers and contemporary authors, with a strong emphasis on Spanish music.In 2001, the orchestra recorded its first CD, Orquestra de Guitarres de Barcelona, which received enthusiastic praise from both the public and the press. A self-titled DVD of the ensemble performing at Palau is distributed by Sony Classical in Europe.
