A New Star is Born...the SCCC


Directed by Narcís Lagares -a Besalú resident enamoured of our music- La Principal de la Bisbal, the official cobla orchestra of the Generalitat of Catalonia and holder of the Saint Jordi Cross, and the Orquestra de Cambra de l'Empordà (Empordà Chamber Orchestra), granted the National Music Award of Catalonia, have combined their work to create the new LA SIMFÒNICA DE COBLA I CORDA DE CATALUNYA (THE COBLA AND STRING SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA OF CATALONIA), a brand new ensemble that combines the experience of the string instruments of the Orquestra de Cambra de l'Empordà and that replaces the wind instruments of the traditional symphony orchestras -oboes, flutes, clarinets, bassoons-for the highly personal sound of the cobla orchestra thanks to the recognised mastery of La Principal de la Bisbal. To round off the colours and the rhythm, LA SIMFÒNICA DE COBLA I CORDA DE CATALUNYA also has a harp and the corresponding hand percussion section with Melani Molina and David Pellicer, recognised professionals who perform with the Orquestra Filharmònica de Catalunya (Philharmonic Orchestra of Catalonia), an ensemble that belongs to the Fundació Orquestra de Cambra de l'Empordà.

LA SIMFÒNICA DE COBLA I CORDA DE CATALUNYA, conducted by Francesc Cassú and Carles Coll, the permanent conductors of the two ensembles of which it is made up, present their work in a disk that will serve as their credential to show the great possibilities and the new sound which, from now on, will mark a milestone in the world of the sardana. The group consists of 37 performers.
