Málaga Philharmonic Orchestra

The Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra

Principal Conductor and Artistic Director: José María Moreno       

The Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra gave its inaugural concert on the 14th February 1991.

Throughout all these years it has maintained the commitment to offer the city quality music along with the best conductors and soloists on the national and international scene. On the orchestra’s programme we find the main works in the international repertory featuring alongside other more challenging works, not forgetting the first performances of new pieces, all of which constitutes a constant and complex balance between the familiar and fully accepted  and the new. In charge of the Orchestra, and of the project encompassing it, six principal conductors have left their personal mark: Octav Calleya, Odón Alonso, Alexander Rahbari, Aldo Ceccato, Edmon Colomer and Manuel Hernández Silva. The list of guest conductors includes Jesus Lopez Cobos, Sergiu Comissiona, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, and Krzysztof Penderecki, among others. Equally, the orchestra has been privileged to collaborate with soloists of great distinction, among them Alicia de Larrocha, Boris Belkin, Alfredo Kraus, Joaquin Achucarro, Montserrat Caballé, Ainhoa Arteta, and Carlos Alvarez.
