The Cello in Spain

Latest CD

The Cello in Spain

If the history of eighteenth-century cello music and performance in Spain is still waiting to be written, Josetxu Obregón and La Ritirata are bringing us up close to the instrument’s role during that time with their new Glossa CD, The Cello in Spain. The selection made by this exciting cellist provides a sample of pieces which undoubtedly would have been heard in Spain during the infancy of the instrument there and in the period leading into the Age of the Enlightenment.

CD reviews – musica Dei donum

Nice 2016 CD review of The Cello in Spain for “musica Dei donum” by Johan van Veen

“Obregón is a brilliant performer. Listen to the first track, the opening of the Sonata in C by Boccherini and you know what to expect. Technically the playing is superb and Obregón and his colleagues play with aplomb in the extraverted pieces but also with refinement in the more intimate items, such as the slow movement of the same sonata.”
