Azahar Ensemble

José Luis Turina writes of this release: “As is often the way, a seemingly insignificant event can have unexpected consequences in the long run. In this case, the trigger was a casual conversation with the members of Azahar Ensemble, only a few minutes after the second of two concerts commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Spanish National Youth Orchestra, held in the Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid in autumn 2014. ‘We play more and more concerts abroad and we are always asked to include a Spanish piece from Falla, Albéniz, Turina and Granados' generation in our repertoire and… we have none!’, I recall them saying. Successful work, as I said, but above all satisfactory for various reasons: because it is my grandfather's music that I have enjoyed since my early years – first as a listener, and eventually as a pianist – and, moreover, because of the opportunity to work so closely with Azahar Ensemble, with whom I have maintained a close bond, beyond a merely professional relationship, right from the very moment of its foundation within the Spanish National Youth Orchestra. Chamber music cannot be performed at a higher level, nor can you bring together a group of people with as much magic, personality and camaraderie as Azahar Ensemble. It is a true privilege to work with them and for them.”
