Argentine conductor, keyboard soloist, and continuo participant Leonardo García Alarcón was a musical prodigy and began presenting piano concerts at age 6. At 15, he began monitoring basso continuo methods as an associate from the ensemble Toccata Instrumentale in La Plata. He examined conducting on the Country wide School of La Plata, and continuing studies on the Catholic School of Buenos Aires, the Center de Musique Anciennes de Genève, and Geneva Conservatory. He focuses on music from the Baroque period, especially Baroque opera, choral music, and vocal music. He provides served being a continuo participant within the ensemble Elyma and can be an associate to its movie director Gabriel Garrido. He founded the ensemble Cappella Mediterranea in Geneva in 1999 and continues to be its artistic movie director. The group targets the styles of madrigal, polyphonic motet, and opera from southern European countries in the first 17th hundred years. He’s also co-director from the Belgian early music ensemble Clematis, and this year 2010 started directing Choeur de Chambre de Namur. García Alarcón is normally energetic in musicological analysis, with special curiosity about the music of 17th hundred years Latin America as well as the 17th hundred years Portuguese Courtroom. His discoveries consist of many operas by David Perez and manuscripts by Niccolò Piccinni. His many recordings consist of unfamiliar or recently discovered functions by composers such as for example Matheo Romero, Giovanni Giorgi, and Michelangelo Falvetti, in addition to well-known parts like Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus.
