Joan Enric Lluna, one of Spain’s leading musicians, combines his work as a clarinettist with orchestral conducting and teaching.

His commitment to Chamber Music has taken him to perform regularly with string quartets such as the

Alexander, Tokyo, Brodsky or Jerusalem; to share a trio with Tasmin Little and Martin Roscoe or Lluís Claret and Josep María Colom among others, and collaborate with first class international artists. His appearances at the City of London Festival, Festival Classique in The Hague, San Francisco Chamber Music series, Berlin’s Konzerthaus or the Liceo de Cámara in Madrid have been of special notice. Joan has premiered and commissioned a number of chamber works by composers like César Cano, J. Torres, I. Zebeljan, P. Barker, D. del Puerto and H.Khoury among others

In 2005 Joan formed Moonwinds, and he directs since 2009 the International Festival “Residències de Música de Cambra” in Godella, Valencia (Spain).

As a soloist Joan has performed and recorded the clarinet concerto repertoire, and many composers have written new concertos for him, among them Sir John Tavener, Joan Guinjoan or César Cano. He will premiere concertos in the seasons 16-17 by Jesus Torres and Isidora Zebeljan, and by Geoffrey Gordon in 17-18. His premieres of “Qualia” with the OCV and Zubin Metha and “Elogio del horizonte”, both by Sánchez Verdú were greatly acclaimed both in Madrid and Munich with the Bayerische Rundfunk.
Among his recordings are Mozart’s clarinet concerto with Sir Neville Marriner (Trito) and with Antony Pay (Cala). He has recorded also with the Tokyo, Bordsky and the Alexander String Quartets. His interest in recovering and promoting Spanish music has produced 5 recordings, for Harmonia Mundi and Clarinet Classics.

With Moonwinds Joan has recorded unknown divertimenti by Martin y Soler, as well as Mozart’s Gran Partita and wind Serenades. Most recently 2 new recordings appeared in the market, both with the Alexander String Quartet: “In Friendship” (Brahms and Cano quintets) and “Gershwin & Kern transcriptions” (Foghrn Classics).

Joan made his début as a conductor with several orchestras in Spain and the UK with great acclaim,and has performed as a conductor-soloist with orchestras as the Manchester Camerata, Orquestra de Cadaqués, Orquesta de Valencia, etc. He has commitments as a conductor and soloist-conductor for the next two seasons along European orchestras.

Joan was appointed in 2006 by Lorin Maazel principal clarinet of the Orquestra CV del Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía in Valencia. He was previously a member of the Bournemouth Sinfonietta, and principal guest in orchestras such as Royal Philharmonic, Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London Mozart Players, London Symphony, City of Birmingham, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, etc. He was a co-founder of the Cadaqués Orchestra, where he remains principal clarinet.

Joan teaches clarinet and chamber music at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya in Barcelona and Trinity College of Music in London. He is regularly invited to give master classes and recitals in major Music centres such as California State University, Royal College and Royal Academy in London or Royal Scottish Academy of Music in Glasgow

Road trip music to de Alexander String Quartet

Los arreglos de Carl Davis (destacado compositor y arreglista, que trabaja frecuentemente en TV y cine) de las selecciones de Porgy and Bess para clarinete y cuarteto de cuerda no es nada menos que suave, sofisticado y totalmente hecho para disfrutar. Davis comienza con el arreglo de Heifetzde estas selecciones para violin y piano con el clarinete tomando las partes del solo de violin y entonces vincular la canción a través de breves cadencias. Lluna está completamente entonado con el sonido y los ritmos de Gershwin, clásicamente elegante en Bess You is my Woman Now, con el toque justo de blues y tono sentimental en Summertime y temerario y atrevido en A Woman is a Sometime Thing y It ain’t Necessarily So. El cuarteto no deja en la zona oscura el solo de clarinete, sino que es un socio igualitario en las exuberantes melodías y a la hora de establecer los estados de ánimo. También muestran oscilación y descaro, mientras al mismo tiempo exhiben su habitual ajustado y ordenado conjunto

Proyecto Música española en el exilio

maletitulo-300x200

La Guerra Civil Española fue una tragedia para el país en muchos sentidos. En el cultural supuso la ruptura brusca de una etapa de las más brillantes de la historia de España, la Generación del 27. La relación entre poetas, pintores, músicos, intelectuales y otros artistas produjo una cantidad de arte y de una calidad que pocas veces se ha visto en nuestro país. Muchos artístas e intelectuales se vieron obligados a abandonar España. En países como Francia, Inglaterra, México o Argentina cada uno continuó su proyecto artístico, pero sin la unión que caracterizó la llamada por algunos en España la “Edad de Plata”.  En todo caso, pese al freno que supuso el exilio y la posguerra, continuaron escribiendo, creando y ofreciendo su arte al público. En este proyecto discográfico se recuperan una serie de obras escritas en el exilio, después de los años 40. Esta recopilación de obras para clarinete y piano es de una calidad extraordinaria pero son poco conocidas, algunas de ellas prácticamente inéditas.

As ever, the marvellous combination of tonal colour is
something wonderful to be heard, weaving textures of an
admirable beauty of sound. It is anchored by a double
bass which plays the second bassoon part as Mozart did
not write a double bass line, as Lluna explains in the
programme notes. It would not be unreasonable to
describe Moonwinds as this country’s highest quality

Un llegendari Marriner acomiada la temporada

Su Adagio sin duda es una música que te hace volar y el magnífico solista Joan Enric Lluna ofreció una interpretación de gran nivel. En este concierto sacó todo el virtuosismo que reclama el primer movimiento, la dicción alada del movimiento central y el carácter fresco y divertido del Rondo-Allegro final. Sin duda Lluna supo iluminar una partitura de grandes exigencias en la que vertió a partes iguales grandes dosis de imaginación y sentido del humor. Después del gran magisterio demostrado en el concierto para clarinete de Mozart aún tuvo tiempo para ofrecer una breve pieza escrita de la mano del dedicatario del concierto en la que se pudieron escuchar algunas de las melodías más populares del maestro de Salzburgo.

Nada redonda

Hubo que esperar al principio del III acto, con la intervención de Joan Enric Lluna como solista, para recuperar el terreno del canto bien emitido y bien fraseado, aunque en este caso no se tratara de una voz, sino de un clarinete. No importa: los instrumentos también saben (o deben saber) cantar, con refinamiento y amplia gama de recursos expresivos. En el mejor de los casos, si saben asimismo ejercer el liderazgo, pueden contagiar a los músicos que les rodean, como sucedió en ese momento.

Joan Enric Lluna is masterful in the Brahms quintet

This music by the Valencian composer, recorded and released by the Alexander String Quartet with the
fantastic clarinettist Joan Enric Lluna, is of dazzling intensity. Their involvement has more than borne fruit in this extraordinary performance of music that is as good as it is complex.

Brodsky Quartet & Joan Enric Lluna

Encircled by a beam of light (Lachrymae), with Lluna kneeling while the notes of his fellow players fade and become nothing, only their movements remaining (Soliloquy), his clarinet spinning a plaintiff glissando whine (Coral); the piece begins while the other musicians gradually disappear, leaving him alone on the stage (Exeunt omnes). Lasting around half an hour, it passes like a sigh, the abandoned instruments alone and destitute on the floor – an improvised tombstone for an anonymous grave.

Mozart chamber music

Two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, four French horns, two basset horns and a double bass form the
orchestration for this piece, performed by the Moonwinds ensemble with Joan Enric Lluna as clarinettist and conductor. An excellent version in every aspect, enhanced for listeners by the high quality of the sound recording. Moonwinds’ well-rounded work stands out for the perfection of its tuning, precise texture, beauty of tone and the elegant phrasing displayed by the ensemble’s musicians.

V Chamber Music International Festival Residències

The Chamber Music International Festival Residències has become an annual event on many people’s
calendars, including my own. Now in its fifth year, it is to be held once again in the Valencian town of Godella.
Under the baton of Joan Enric Lluna, solo clarinet with the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana – the resident orchestra at the Palau de les Arts – and founder of the wind ensemble Moonwinds, the Festival has become a key event in the chamber music calendar. It is also a fantastic opportunity for young musicians to practise and perform alongside top, established musicians.

Moonwinds and its ‘Ambassadors’

This residency at the Auditori de Barcelona is not just a musical project, but also an integrated project. It comprises not only the scheduled concerts but a phalanx of parallel activities – open rehearsals, round tables, discussions, etc. – the aim of which are to draw in a new audience. This intent has given rise to the concept of the ‘Moonwinds Ambassadors‘, volunteers from different walks of life who are involved in drawing up and organising the activities planned around each concert.

Musical harmony

Encouraging the participation of spectators is an excellent initiative. It establishes a dialogue between the
artists – composer and conductor – and the listeners, providing a space for the discussion of any doubts in a
relaxed atmosphere that extends beyond the bounds of the stage. The end brings a fiesta-like atmosphere and
encores on demand: part of a theme by Martín y Soler present in one of his own divertimenti on the opera Una
cosa rara – the theme that Mozart quotes in his opera Don Giovanni-,a bassoon duet and a repeat of Dvorak’s
delicious Trio. Roll on the next concert!

The orchestra played at its best and once again the masterful hand of a great conductor was in evidence. Chailly demands the most from his players and they certainly gave it to him.

The Godella Festival continues to open the way for young talent

Major artists give public concerts, but the most interesting aspect of this festival is that the artists make the town their home for the week as they work on preparing for the concerts. This highly enriching personal and intellectual co-existence generates a real community of artists. In addition, this preparatory work is open to the general public, especially young people, in the form of open rehearsals, concerts combined with talks, sessions with young music students, discussions and conferences.

Interview: Joan Enric Lluna or the significance of the sound

“I am a lifelong clarinettist, it is my way of being a
musician,” acknowledges Lluna, but “I have never been
obsessed by technique or being a virtuoso.” He tells how
a fan once asked him his NPS (notes per second) and
was surprised when he replied, “I don’t know”. What
interests him most about the instrument “is the
significance of the sound, what you can do with a note,
communication.” He stresses the idea to his students at
the Catalan College of Music in Barcelona or Trinity
College in London that “what is most important is the
sound you produce and the subtleties you get with it”, as
well as the importance of “surrendering yourself totally to
this work until you are able to say something that makes
people listen.”
He tries to make the role of soloist compatible with a
personal career trajectory in which conducting is taking
an ever more central role, with both British and Spanish
ensembles. “Conducting gives me enormous satisfaction,
because the possibilities are endless,” he states. “This is
what I want to be when I grow up.”

Joan Enric Lluna: the clarinet

The clarinet is widely known in Spain, particularly due to the important role it plays in bands. This means that in some places in the country, particularly the Valencian region, the number of students studying the clarinet exceeds that of any other instrument, and very often, half the worldwide production of international manufacturers of clarinet-related items is sold in Spain.

The Festival de Godella ends to all-round acclaim

“We have retained the intimacy and accessibility of chamber music and people’s responses have been
impressive, year after year,” commented Lluna, “we have deliberately avoided flash showiness in favour of offering, quite simply, what we know how to do best: music.”

El Festival de Música de Cámara de Godella se despide ovacionado

The Festival de Godella passes the mid-way mark with distinction.

The acclaim was as much for the musicians of
Moonwinds as the singers Isabel Monar, José Antonio
López and José Ferrero. They were the closing act of an
exciting night that started with a selection from Una cosa
rara, by Martín y Soler and continued with a selection
from Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess. Bizet’s Carmen and La
verbena de la Paloma by Bretón and Ortega completed
the programme.

In any case, Mehta’s conducting drew from the orchestra
their full potential, which is a great deal, achieving a
sound of great beauty and bringing out details of the
orchestration that normally pass unnoticed. I don’t
remember a version of the Ride of the Valkyries where
the woodwind took such a leading role. The bassoons
were inspired all night and the solo contributions from
Joan Enric Lluna on clarinet and Christopher Bouwman
on oboe were enchanting.

Variety is a beautiful thing

For the closing night of the fifth Godella Chamber Music
Festival, its director Joan Enric Lluna brought together a
group of colleagues and friends from the orchestra of Les
Arts, in which he plays first clarinet, and his Moonwinds
ensemble. They performed a varied programme which in
places was unannounced (a bad habit which should be
avoided in the future). There was so much, and so much
of a good quality, that much of it will inevitably be left out.

Alexander String Quartet releases Gershwin and Kern recording

La grabación esencialmente estadounidense se inspiró a partir de una conversación entre Lluna y Carl Davis después de una actuación en España, cuando el clarinetista confesó que le gustaba tocar las canciones de Gershwin más que cualquier otra cosa. Lluna sugirió un arreglo para clarinete y cuarteto de cuerdas, con sus colaboradores ASQ – con los que había grabado previamente quintetos para clarinete de Brahms, Mozart y César Cano– en mente.  D. Davis tomó la versión original Heifetzpara piano y rápidamente arregló la parte del violín para clarinete, pero con un toque único añadido: cadencias solistas breves que llevan al oyente de un movimiento a otro.

Daniel Martínez Babiloni

The phrasing is well-balanced and elegant with very
beautiful moments in terms of expression. Of particular
note in the Serenade was the clarinet quartet in the
firstTrio of the first Menuetto and the waltz that is the
development of the secondTrio of the second Menuetto,
as well as Variation VI which attacks immediately in the
final Rondo, creating a great feeling of dynamism and
vitality. (…) There are good grounds for highlighting Joan
Enric Lluna’s lucidity in bringing together and performing
these works, offering us something that I am sure people
will continue to talk about in the future. Another point to
highlight is how cleverly he has chosen the members of
Moonwinds: without wishing to detract from any of the
others the oboist Juan Manuel Lumbreras particularly
stands out. Lluna is exceedingly familiar with the clarinet
repertoire (mention must be made of his recordings of
Romero and Yuste) and he could be said to be equally
at home in many areas, whether he is playing big classic
concerts, premiering compositions or conducting, usually
in the Palau de les Arts – as his schedule for the next few
months will demonstrate. In short, a new contribution
from this clarinettist/conductor/communicator who
certainly has the ability to offer us many new surprises
and moments of pleasure in the future.”

Interview: Joan Enric Lluna, clarinettist

Lluna, a soloist with the Cadaqués Orchestra, is a
restless musician who is always conceiving new projects.
From his home city of London, he calmly plans an
international schedule that allows him to perform as a
soloist with the great European orchestras, cultivate his
passion for chamber music, and spend part of his time
teaching at the Birmingham Conservatoire (Birmingham
City University) and, since it was first established the
Catalonia College of Music (Esmuc). “For a couple of
years I toyed with the idea of founding a group with other
Spanish musicians who, like me, work regularly with
European orchestras and finally the idea became reality
with Moonwinds“, he comments.
