Click on the title of the recording to get further information.

The OVIEDO FILARMONíA is one of Spain’s newest orchestras. Founded by an initiative of the culturally active city of Oviedo, its mayor Gabino de Lorenzo, and former musicians of the “Moscow Virtuosi”, the Filarmonía made its debut on February 6, 1999 in the Teatro Campoamor.

From the very outset, the orchestra has displayed its tremendous versatility, working in opera, ballet, and zarzuela (the Spanish operetta), as well as giving symphony concerts in the city auditorium.

With the appointment of the Austrian Friedrich Haider as its music director in the year 2004, the orchestra quickly positioned itself at the center of the city’s music life. Performances such as the complete symphonic works of Beethoven, Brahms and Schumann, the operas Tannhäuser and Tosca, Stravinsky’s Firebird with the Tokyo Ballet all met with high acclaim. Soon, the OVIEDO FILARMONÍA was also garnering a national and international reputation. In the autumn of 2005 the orchestra was invited to perform Cherubini’s Requiem at Madrid’s Auditorio Nacional, played at Paris’s Theatre du Champs Elyseés, and gave a sensational concert of Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo in Tokyo.

Between 2006 and 2011, the Oviedo Filarmonía and Friedrich Haider undertook a large-scale Wolf-Ferrari CD project, as well as a recording of Verdi’s Otello.
