LA SIMFÒNICA DE CORDA I COBLA DE CATALUNYA is born

La Principal de la Bisbal, the official cobla orchestra of the Generalitat of Catalonia and holder of the Saint Jordi Cross, and the Orquestra de Cambra de l’Empordà (Empordà Chamber Orchestra), granted the National Music Award of Catalonia, have combined their work to create the new LA SIMFÒNICA DE COBLA I CORDA DE CATALUNYA (THE COBLA AND STRING SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA OF CATALONIA), a brand new ensemble that combines the experience of the string instruments of the Orquestra de Cambra de l’Empordà and that replaces the wind instruments of the traditional symphony orchestras –oboes, flutes, clarinets, bassoons-for the highly personal sound of the cobla orchestra thanks to the recognised mastery of La Principal de la Bisbal. To round off the colours and the rhythm, LA SIMFÒNICA DE COBLA I CORDA DE CATALUNYA also has a harp and the corresponding hand percussion section.
