Brunetti Oboe Sextets

Brunetti Oboe Sextet IV (select)



Opposing the deprecatory view of a backward and isolated Spain that has prevailed until recently, Brunetti’s music shows that what was composed in the rest of Europe was widely and intensely welcomed in Madrid. Cayetano Brunetti was born around 1744 in Fano, a city located on the Adriatic coast. We know that in 1760, aged 15 or 16, he already lived in Madrid with his parents. Due to their unusual instrumentation, the six “Sestetti a due violini, oboe, due viole e violoncello” stand out within Brunetti’s work. According to the manuscript scores, the sextets were composed “per divertimento di S.M.C” (for the amusement of His Catholic Majesty), which means that they were originally written for the concerts that the musicians of the Royal Chamber would perform for Carlos IV. Lightness, emotion, brilliance, and complexity is what gives these sextets their peculiar beauty, which is hardly found in chamber music written during the second half of the 18th century.

Robert Silla

His revolutionary vision of the oboe, the risky interpretations always on the edge and its addictive sound, make Robert Silla an oboist of reference. Highlighted by critics for his «assurance, poise and elegance», Robert Silla combines his work in orchestras, with chamber music concerts and recitals. With a long experience as an orchestra soloist, at 22 he won his first position as a principal oboe in the Orquesta de Oporto. Later he became part of the Orquesta Nacional de España, where he continues to carry out this work. In addition, Robert Silla has been a guest at the Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, where he has played with Maestros such as Riccardo Chailly, Daniel Gatti and Georges Pêtre among others. He is also a guest musician at Gävle Simfoniorkester and Plural Ensemble and has collaborated with Orquestra del Gran Teatre del Liceu, Orquestra de Cadaques, Orquesta Musicaeterna and festivals such as Rurhtriennale or Salzburg, Camerata Bern and BandArt. In 2008 he participated in the first online audition worldwide for the Youtube Symphony Orchestra, which led him to play at Carnegie Hall with Maestro Michael Tilson Thomas. A media experiment that was echoed by the international press. His interest in chamber music has led him to undertake projects in which the originality and the vindication of all the oboe’s possibilities are key elements, such as the Ensemble Sinergia, an eclectic group that was a resident ensemble at the Teatro Arenal in Madrid, or his peculiar Oboe Solo recitals. Among his future projects include research and recovery of missing chamber music works of the XVIII century. Trained at the Valencia and Castellón conservatories, where he obtained the extraordinary end-of-degree prize in the Vicente Llimerà class and the Euterpe award for the best academic career, he extended his studies with Emanuel Abbühl at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Mannheim and with Maurice Bourgue in private classes, besides dedicating himself to the study of historical interpretation with Albert Romaguera. Robert Silla is a Marigaux artist and plays with an oboe Marigaux model 901
