FotoNEW RELEASE: Illeta by Francisco Escudero
Tritó's newest score is the Elegiac Oratorio for Baritone, Chorus and Orchestra Illeta by the Basque composer Francisco Escudero. This work comes after Escudero's Symphony no. 5 "Ultreia" , which we presented just a few days ago. Illeta (Funeral) was finished in 1952. The text is by the Basque poet Xavier Lizardi (penname of José María Aguirre), his personal vision of the funeral of his maternal grandmother in the town of Zarautz in 1930. Thanks to the efforts of individuals, societies and institutions, Illeta was performed frequently in the late fifties in the Basque Country, where it made a significant impact on the cultural scene.

Just as the OBC (Orchestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya) rediscovers Ferran Sor's overture for the tragedy La Elvira Portuguesa, this coming weekend the Spanish National Orchestra under principal conductor Josep Pons performs another of the composer's forgotten orchestral works: the overture from the ballet Hercule et Omphale. The performances are 31 March and 1 and 2 April at the Auditorio Nacional de Música de Madrid. Among other ballets by Sor, the Tritó catalogue offers the score for the overture from Alphonse et Léonor.
