He presents the program “1620” about exploring the interpretive possibilities of a new Baroque instrument: THE THEORBO.


The 1620 program was born from the desire to confront the work of three authors who make up the first generation of performers of a new Baroque instrument: the theorbo. This instrument is the largest and most serious member of the llaüts family; It was created to accompany the vocal music of the new dramatic and passionate style of the Baroque. 1620 compares the compositions of the first generation of music for this instrument.

Ferran Pisa was born on the island of Majorca, where he attended elementary musical training, he completed his higher studies in guitar at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam (2003). In that large and dynamic conservatory he learned about historicist interpretation; What captivated him most about this approach to the repertoire is that it gave importance to the relationships between music and its historical and social context, such as the discovery of the orbit of the planets around the sun and the corner circuit that runs through the body pumped by the heart was produced at the same time that we found love in the cyclical and repetitive forms in music.

Having obtained his degree in the Netherlands, he came to Barcelona to specialize in theorbo with Professor Xavier Díaz Latorre at the Escuela Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC) in 2006. With him he learned the importance of technical preparation and the need to getting emotionally involved with the musical discourse when one places a baroque piece on the music stand. Since 2011, he has been a theorbist musician, collaborating with different ensembles from the Catalan Countries and, above all, designing programs to present my own projects as a soloist and as a founding member of the Solnegre ensemble.
