“Like certain physicists, I believe that time does not exist and music allows us to resurrect the souls of composers.”
Leonardo García Alarcón
Leonardo García Alarcón is a harpsichordist, conductor, choirmaster and composer, who also has vast experience in opera. He sets himself apart with his in-depth knowledge of the repertoire, as well as the genius and audacity of his interpretations, as he constantly strives to rekindle the elemental force of music and transmit emotion.
“Above all, he is a great conduit of emotion. He has many identities and is at once a learned musicologist and a showman. He can elicit the enthusiasm of an entire hall with the most varied repertoire, from a street dance version of Indes Galantes to the St. Matthew Passion.”
Charles Sigel for Forumopera in June 2022
“Rarely have I met a conductor who is as interested in theatre, dramaturgy, schools of thought, and the relationship between music and text.”
Jean-Yves Ruf, stage director
