About

Xavier Díaz Latorre was born in Barcelona in 1968. He studied at advanced level with Oscar Ghiglia at the Musikhochschule, Basel, graduating in 1993. His subsequent interest in early music led him to study the lute with Hopkinson Smith at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. He has completed several courses in choral conducting and a post-graduate course in orchestral conducting.

Since 1995 he has been actively involved in the world of baroque opera, having participated in major productions such as Semele (Handel) at the Berlin State Opera with the Akademie für alte Musik, Berlin, conducted by René Jacobs; L’Orfeo (Monteverdi) at the Goldoni Theatre, Florence, the Théâtre de la Monnaie, Brussels,  Covent Garden, London, the Grand Théâtre de Provence, Aix-en-Provence, the Théâtre des Champs Élysées, Paris, and the BAM, New York, again under René Jacobs but with Concerto Vocale; L’Orfeo again, but with Le Concert des Nations and Jordi Savall at the Teatro Real, Madrid and the Liceu, Barcelona; Solimano (Johann Adolf Hasse) at the Berlin and Dresden State Operas with Concerto Köln and René Jacobs; La Serva Padrona (Pergolesi) at the Philharmonie, Berlin and Ludwigsburg Castle with the Balthasar-Neumann Ensemble and Thomas Hengelbrock; Dal Male il Bene (Marco Marazzoli and Antonio Maria Abbatini) at the Landestheater, Innsbruck with Concerto Vocale and Attilio Cremonesi; Don Chisciote della Mancia in Sierra Morena (Francesco Bartolomeo Conti) with the University of Salamanca Baroque Orchestra and Wieland Kuijken.

Xavier Díaz-Latorre frequently takes part in major international festivals in Europe, the USA, South America, and South Korea. He is a member of renowned orchestras and chamber groups such as those conducted by Jordi Savall – Hesperion XXI, La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Le Concert de Nations, and has been invited to perform with other major orchestras and ensembles such as the Orquesta Nacional de España or Al Ayre Español.

He has his own vocal and instrumental ensemble, Laberintos Ingeniosos, which specialises in performance of music from the Spanish Golden Age. The group’s first disc, Danzas de Rasgueado y Sones de Palacio, with music by the Aragonese composer Gaspar Sanz, recorded on the Zig-Zag Territoires label, has received excellent reviews in the media, and has been broadcast by several international radio stations throughout Europe, Israel, Australia, South Korea and North America. Laberintos Ingeniosos has now made further CDs of music from the Iberian Peninsula performed on period instruments, such as Goyesca, seguidillas boleras, with music by Fernando Sor, and “...entre el cielo y el infierno...”, with works by Francisco de Guerau and José Marín. In addition, Xavier Díaz-Latorre has taken part in over 30 CDs for Alia Vox and Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, and has made recordings for numerous television and radio stations in Europe, North and South America and South Korea.

He has been invited to give courses at many venues in Spain, Italy, Germany and Switzerland, also at Seoul (South Korea). He is resident teacher of lute, bass continuo and chamber music at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya and at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels

LaberintosIngeniosos

LaberintosIngeniosos

LaberintosIngeniosos is a project that started about the year 2000 when Pedro Estevan and Xavier Díaz-Latorre released their first recording, (Sones de Palacio & Danças de Rasgueado)featuring music by Gaspar Sanz. Since that time, Laberintos Ingeniosos has been exploring the rich variety of music from the Iberian repertoire which ranges from the medieval Cantigas of Santa Maria, the collection from Alfonso the 10th (the Wise), all the way to the Seguidillas Boleras by Fernando Sor written in the 19th Century. This rich collection of repertoire explored by LaberintosIngeniosos also includes the poliphony of Juan Vásquez, Francisco Guerrero and Tomás Luís de Victoria, and the tonos humanos by José Marín. The next record will feature the music of Santiago de Murcia, which will be released very soon.
