Since its foundation in 1997, ALIA VOX has been distinguished by a catalogue consisting exclusively of record releases produced and performed by us: that is to say, by Montserrat Figueras, Hespérion XXI, La Capella Reial de Catalunya, Le Concert des Nations, Arianna Savall,Ferran Savall and myself.Eighteen years and more than one hundred CDs later, we are delighted to announce a new collection - ALIA VOX DIVERSA. It will feature recordings not previously released by talented musicians and ensembles who have been chosen and selected for their musical interest and merit, theimportance of their repertoire and the originality of the programmes proposed. This launch marks a major departure, allowing us to discover on a regular basis original and hitherto unrecorded proposals from musicians who have worked with us on numerous projects over a long period and who have innovative and interesting programmes of their own to offer which are characterised by rigorous performances steeped in emotion and creativity.
The programme offered by Enrike Solinís and his ensemble brings together all the key elements Alia Vox aim to make a hallmark of this new DIVERSA collection: the discovery of neglected early Basque music - performed with respect for the historical practices and traditions of the Renaissance and the Baroque periods. Thanks to the talent and sensitivity of the singers and musicians of EUSKAL BARROKENSEMBLE directed by Enrike Solinís, we can marvel at these musical gems full of vitality and emotion which distil the essence of the musical culture of the ancient Basque Country.
