The La Spagna ensemble, which takes its name from one of the most famous melodies of the Renaissance, was founded by Alejandro Marías in 2009 by bringing together some of the best historically informed musicians of his generation. With a very flexible format, it has two aspects, as a chamber group and as a baroque orchestra, with which it performs opera and oratorio together with guest soloists and conductors.

The styles tackled by La Spagna range from the Renaissance to the early Romanticism —with some foray into 21st century music—, although most of its activity focuses on the Baroque. This diversity always revolves around the same principle: to offer a passionate, trustworthy and sincere interpretation that respects the historical and social perspective of each repertoire.

Since the publication of their album A Tribute to Telemann, La Spagna has recorded the works for viola da gamba by Jacques Morel (Brilliant Classics) and Las Siete Palabras by Haydn-Barbieri. In
recent times, the group has performed in places such as the Symphonic Hall of the National Music Auditorium, the Royal Palace or the Congress of Deputies, as well as in the Seville Festival de
Música Antigua, Santander Festival, the Festival Internacional de Arte Sacro or the Festival de Música Española of Cádiz. Upcoming projects include a European tour presenting the latest album
and collaboration with current composers with the aim of creating new repertoires for old instruments.
