Bilbao Symphony Orchestra/ Juan Jose Mena

Born and raised in Bilbao, Jesus Arambarri was first and foremost a conductor – he even died at the podium – though his small compositional output bears the hallmarks of a highly talented creative mind. Some of his most important works date from his student years: the Four Impromptus, the orchestral prelude Gabon-zar sorginak (Witches on New Year’s Eve) and the Eight Basque Songs for soprano and orchestra.

Arambarri is one of the most significant figures in the history of twentieth-century Basque and Spanish music. His music is characterised by a sense of restrained Romantic elegance. Even his earliest works demonstrate his predilection for melodic, transparent writing which draws its inspiration from existing material, such as the Basque folk-songs that lie behind Gabon-zar sorginak and the Four Impromptus.
