Nicola Jenkin


Lorenzo Palomo is one of the most successful contemporary Spanish composers, both in his native Spain and abroad. Soon after his birth in Ciudad Real in 1938 his family returned to Crdoba, where he spent the first twenty years of his life. His work has been strongly influenced by Andalusian music, with its Jewish and Moorish elements and melismas. At a very early age he displayed unusual gifts, and wrote his first piano pieces, his first songs and his first choral compositions at the age of twelve. He studied piano and harmony in Crdoba, before entering the Barcelona Conservatory, where he studied composition with Joaqun Zamacois and piano with Sofa Puche de Mendlewicz. He graduated with honours in counterpoint and fugue and in composition. Awarded the Juan March Foundation Grant he travelled to New York, where he studied conducting under Boris Goldovsky. In 1973 he was appointed chief conductor of the Valencia Symphony Orchestra, conducting such renowned artists as Montserrat Caball, Placido Domingo, Franco Corelli, Pilar Lorengar, Jos Iturbi, Misha Dichter, Rafael Orozco and Alexis Weissenberg. His performances as a guest conductor have included a concert in Geneva in 1976 with lOrchestre de la Suisse Romande marking the centenary of Manuel de Falla.
