Visiting Jorquera Pianos
The secrets of the instrument: the piano
Monday, 18 October 17:00
* Private and exclusive events for members of the Círculo del Liceo

The Music Commission of the Círculo del Liceo presentes the new cycle of activities "The secrets of the instrument", which allows members to expand their knowledge of different instruments, with the help of renowned professionals and artists.

The firs session was dedicated to the piano. We visited the Jorquera Pianos workshop with Carles Horváth Ysàs, the brand's technical director.

Founded in 1853 by Ginés Jorquera, the company is still in the hands of the family, which is now in its fifth generation. They are regular contributors to festivals and institutions, such as the Cadaqués International Music Festival, the Torroella de Montgrí International Festival, the Catalan Contemporary Music Festival, and competitions such as the Tenor Viñas, Maria Canals Contests or the Enric Granados International Piano Contest, endorsed by Alícia de Larrocha, among others.
Carles Horváth Ysàs has worked at Jorquera Pianos since 1992 and has held the position of technical director since 1999. He is responsible for most of the concert tunings, which has allowed him to collaborate with artists, festivals, auditoriums, theaters, conservatories and other top-lever national and international artists and organizations.
The event featured the participation of Albert Guinovart, renowned pianist and regular collaborator of the Círculo del Liceo, who performed some demonstrations.
