About Santiago de Murcia

Spanish guitarist and composer Santiago de Murcia (c. 1682-1740) mainly wrote music for the guitar and also published Resumen de acompañar, a comprehensive treatise on playing the instrument in an ensemble. One of his musical collections, the Saldívar Codex, contains de Murcia’s versions of many Spanish dances. It is the earliest known written source for the dances la jotafandango, and cumbé.

ABOUT CLOSE QUARTERS

LACO’s new premium streaming series – which premieres November 6 – presents a new avenue for classical music and a unique look at what the future can hold in balancing music, art and movement.

Close Quarters features classical music performances set to images and art created and processed in a first-of-its-kind digital studio at Wilhardt + Naud. Music Director Jaime Martín and Director and Designer James Darrah seek to create a digital series that celebrates collaboration in an age of isolation.

Close Quarters is a Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra original series and you can find it for free on Youtube, Facebook and our website.
