La Real Cámara

Early music

World representation

La Real Cámara was founded in 1992 with the prime aim of rescuing and reviving the Spanish musical heritage of the 17th and 18th centuries. Emilio Moreno was commissioned by the consortium organizing Madrid, European Capital of Culture to create and direct an ensemble of chamber music able to perform this rich and new repertoire. A highly talented group of Spanish musicians was chosen, all with international careers, plus collaborators of the highest level such as Enrico Gatti, Natsumi Wakamatsu, Wouter Möller, Guido Morini, María Cristina Khier, Gaetano Nasillo and Roel Dieltiens.

La Real Cámara was launched at the Prado museum with a series of concerts dedicated entirely to Spanish Baroque music. These were all recorded and broadcast by Radio Nacional de España and highly praised by audiences and critics alike.

Since then La Real Cámara has performed regularly in Spain on radio and television, and appeared at international music festivals in Granada, Torroella de Montgrí and Santander; at the Golden Age of Spanish Music Festival; at early music festivals held in Barcelona, the Pyrenees, Daroca, Úbeda and Baeza; and at the Renaissance and Baroque Music Festival in Vélez Blanco. They have also played at Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, Auditorio de El Escorial, Palau in Barcelona, the Royal Gardens of the Alcázar in Seville, among other venues. Moreover, La Real Cámara has performed at festivals in Flanders, Montreux and Ambronay, at festivals of ancient music in St. Petersburg, Prague, Antwerp, Bratislava, Panama, the Azores, Lisbon, Potsdam/Berlin, the Easter Festival of Paris, the Light Festival in Helsinki and the Festival Cervantino in Mexico, and has had regular performances in concert halls and seasons in France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Netherland, Slovenia, Mexico and Japan, where their concerts in Tokyo dedicated to the “Tonadilla” and Boccherini where considered by the critic “the musical event of the year 2000”.

La Real Cámara has made several recordings for Glossa label, dedicated to Luigi Boccherini (La Bona Notte, The Last Trios, Guitar Quintets), to the 17th century Spanish music (Tientos y Batallas) and to the 18th century (Music in the Time of Goya). These recordings won numerous awards: Diapason d’Or, 10 du Repertoire and Choc in France, the International Antonio Vivaldi Award in Italy, 5 Stars in the Goldberg magazine, Recording of the Year by the magazines CDCompact in Spain, Gramophone in Germany, Luister in the Netherlands and Ongaku in Japan.

Furthermore, the recording of Boccherini’s complete String Trios (Op. 14) was awarded 3×10 (‘three times ten’) by the German magazine Klassik Heute, 5 Stars by the Goldberg magazine, while the Spanish cultural magazine Babelia (El País, 2008) asserted that conductor Emilio Moreno, was ‘the best current interpreter of this music’. Also dedicated to Boccherini are the CDs Six Quatours pour le clavecin ou pianoforte, violon, viola et basse obligé (G259), and their latest recording, Sei Terxettini Op. 47, recorded in Japan with Natsumi Wakamatsu, violin, Emilio Moreno, viola and Hidemi Suzuki, cello.
