Opera Omnia focuses its performances on the Spanish musical baroque and classicism heritage, always using original instruments and the most appropriate interpretative techniques for each repertoire. They are resorting to treatises and original sources in order to recreate the interpretative style of each period, while giving their interpretations a daring and novel approach. The result is fresh and brilliant versions, displaying
Opera Omnia premieres the program Requiem por una dinastía at the Festival Internacional de Arte Sacro de la Comunidad de Madrid, focused on the figure of the maestro of the Royal Chapel Sebastián Durón, whose main work is the Misa de difuntos. This work was most probably written to commemorate the death of Carlos II, the last Spanish Austria. Opera Omnia was invited by the Semana de Música Antigua de Estella, de Logroño y de Álava with the program SARAO that brings together the music of two great composers; Juan Francés de Iribarren, chapel master of the Cathedral of Malaga, and Diego Pérez de Camino, chapel master of the Cathedral of Santo Domingo de la Calzada. On this occasion, the group was honored to present these pieces in modern times.
Isaac M. Pulet
Conducor and violinist
First professor of baroque violin at the Music Conservatory of Vigo. He finished his studies with the highest qualifications in violin, harmony, counterpoint and acoustics at the Royal Music Conservatory of Madrid, having as tutor the international violinist Hiro Kurosaki. During his time at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague (Netherlands) he studied with Pavlo Beznosiuk and Ryo Terakado. Moreover, he received masterclasses of historicist interpretation with professors such as Lucy van Dael, Anton Steck, Mira Glodeanu, Margaret Foultness, and Kati Debretzeni.
In 2020 he created the School of Polyphony Opera Omnia. In collaboration with Isaac Alonso (professor at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague) and the world-renowned Juan Carlos Asensio, Isaac teaches on subjects covering solmisation or historical solfège, psalmody and modality, renaissance, counterpoint, mensural notation and historical temperaments. Since these subjects are not offered at traditional conservatories, this school of polyphony aspires to become a center of reference.
· "Before the insistent applause and cheers of the public, the performers gave another jovial jácara as a tip, [...], to the delight of a fun and devoted public."

"What is clear is that, with groups like Opera Omnia, we are, at last, on the right path for the Spanish 17th century to come out of the obscurantism"
-Edward Torrico. Scherzo Magazine -
“ An excellent concert, of extraordinary musical quality, one of those that animate the public and leave a formidable aftertaste. The cheers endings were awesome.”
- Eduardo Aisa. La Rioja Newspaper-
"The voices were buoyant, especially in the Miserere, highlighting with exquisite neatness each one of the polyphonic nuances of the work."

Despite the recognition that the group is beginning to have in Spain, carrying out projects with good financial backing is still quite a difficult task.
