Info for Concerto Zapico, Vol. 2

In 2007 the Zapico brothers created «Concerto Zapico»; their most personal project. Through it they reached a longed for aspiration: to be able to make chamber music together. The problem is that none of them play any melodic instrument, but polyphonic, ideal for the solo repertoire or for the realization of the basso continuo, that is, the harmonic accompaniment of the melody. But, playing together?

To achieve it they decided to undertake the task of transcribing a selection of Italian and Spanish dances from the 17th and 18th centuries, creating a unique and personal language. Their first recording in this format, «Concerto Zapico», came out with tremendous success in 2010 for the German label Winter & Winter, where they are currently exclusive artists. The transcriptions alternated harmonic and rhythmic filling with singable parts for each instrument. A new language for a unique instrument set.

After «Concerto Zapico» came «Opera Zapico», in which they evidenced that it also works -and how!- their transcriptions of arias and instrumental opera parts, from Monteverdi to Mozart. Big orchestral scores reduced to three unique instruments; and without voice. A practice, although common at that time, nothing explored today by almost any performer.

After more than a hundred concerts around the world with this program, the original registered selection of dances of «Concerto Zapico» was evolving in such a way that eight years later a new corpus of works has emerged with its own entity and that configures the content of this new release. This is «Concerto Zapico Vol. 2», a journey through the dance music of the 17th and 18th centuries with an extra maturity, language control, colors and timbre possibilities of their instruments. The most current expression of the recognized by the reviews as «Zapico style», their own language that they maintain in continuous development. This musical understanding makes this CD a hypnotic and fascinating experience for the listener.

Zahlreiche Konzerte spielten sie bei wichtigen spanischen Festivals wie dem Internationalen Festival für Musik und Tanz in Granada und den San Sebastian Musical Fortnight. Sie touren aber auch mit vielseitigen Programmen auf internationalen Festivals wie den Van Vlaanderen in Brügge oder den Sommerfestspielen alter Musik in Prag. Darüber hinaus spielten sie in verschiedenen Konzerthäusern in Bolivien, Brasilien, Singapur, Australien, Japan und Frankreich. Forma Antiqva erhielt die Auszeichnung »Bestes Ensemble 2010« der Radio Televisión del Principado de Asturias.
