Founding member of the Cadaqués Orchestra and one of the most admired flutes of his generation, Jaime Martín has consolidated himself as an excellent conductor, capable of transmitting his musicality to the whole orchestra. For his concert in BCN Clàssics, he is accompanied by an exceptional soloist, the violinist Daniel Hope, linked since his infancy to Yehudi Menuhin, with whom he has collaborated also as an adult, and to whom he dedicated a recording on Deutsche Grammophon. Hope plays Bruch’s Violin Concerto and the Orchestra opens with Ferran Sor’s overture of the ballet Cendrillon (work the Catalan composer premiered in London in 1815), and closes with Beethoven’s 7th Symphony which Wagner described as being “the apotheosis of the dance”.
