Composer and clarinet player, Jesús Rodríguez Picó was born in
Barcelona, Spain. his works are performed by many important groups and
orchestras as "Diabolus in Musica", "Solars Vortices", "Grupo Koan",
"Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya",
"Filharmònica de Minsk", "Orquesta Nacional de España", etc.
If we were to point out some of his many recordings we should then talk
about two CDs, one with orchestral works from 1988 to 1991 including
his Clarinet Concerto num. 1 and Imatges de l'Alícia, and the second
recording with his chamber music for clarinet and piano.
His catalogue also includes three operas. The first one, El paradís de
les muntanyes from a text by Alfred Jarry, was first performed in 1998
in the "Teatre Lliure de Barcelona" and then recorded by the Barcelona
Modern Project conducted by Marc Moncusí. His other two operas are
Hotel Occident from a text by Lluïsa Cunillé and Opportunitas that was
premiered in the 2004 Festival "Altaveu".
