L’Apothéose was born in December 2015 like a space of celebration, reflection and experimentation for its members. From its beginnings, they wanted to take the historical interpretation to the highest level, maintaining clear ideas and joining all their knowledge to convey to the listener the emotional content and rhetoric of each composer.
The name of the ensemble was inspired by the title of the work “L’Apothéose de Corelli” by François Couperin, suite in trio published in 1726. This piece constituted the first musical project of the members of the group and the beginning of what is today a very fruitful musical journey that continues to bring L’Apothéose to the main Spanish and European concert halls (Festival Internacional de Santander, Oude Muziek of Utrecht, Quincena Musical de San Sebastián, Internationale Händel Festspiele Göttingen, Festival de Arte Sacro de la Comunidad de Madrid, Festival de Torroella de Montgrí, Festival de Música Antigua de Úbeda y Baeza, FeMÀS etc.).
They have been “2nd prize” at the famous Van Wassenaer International Competition 2018 at the Oude Muziek Utrecht’s Festival, “Circuitos FestClásica 2018 prize” as Best Spanish Early Music Ensemble, “Young Group Prize 2017” at the Early Music Spanish Groups Association, “1st Prize”, “Bärenreiter Prize” and “Eeemerging Prize” at the International Göttingen Händel Competition 2017, “2nd Prize” at Concours International de Musique Ancienne de Val de Loire 2017 chaired by William Christie and “2nd Prize” at the Förderpreis Alte Musik Saarland 2016 in Saarbrücken.
Its interpreters have a solid classical and historicist academic training and have been part of ensembles such as the Capilla Real de Madrid, La Madrileña, Bachorchester Mainz, Insula Orchestra and the Spanish National Orchestra among others. As a group, they have received advice from Richard Egarr, Jana Semerádová, Claire Guimond, Kristin von der Goltz, Jesper Christensen, Alberto Martínez or Guillermo Peñalver.
Its chamber music repertoire ranges from the early baroque to the end of classicism, traveling through all the great European nations and their different styles.
