Josep Benet (Tenor)

Born: Catalonia, Spain

The Catalon tenor, Josep Benet, began as soloist soprano in the Escolanía de Montserrat and later on he studies theory, piano and violin in the Conservatorio Superior de Barcelona. He receives singing lessons from Jordi Albareda and completes his education in Munich's Hochschule für Musik.

Josep Benet is a specialist in music from the Middle Ages to the early Baroque period. He has perfomed with ensembles such as Ensemble Organum Sequentia, Hespèrion XX (Director: Jordi Savall), Il Seminario Musicale (Director: Gérard Lesne), La Chapelle Royale (Director: Philippe Herreweghe), Les Arts Florissants (Director: William Christie), Clemencic Consort, Ensemble Daedalus, or orchestras as the Orquestra Ciudat de Barcelona, Orquestra de Cambra Teatre Lliure, etc., performing in the main European festivals. He is a founding member of the vocal quartet La Colombina, an ensemble that specializes in a cappella music from the Renaissance and early Baroque, very often highlighting previously neglected Spanish music in their programmes. With La Colombina, Benet has given concerts throughout Europe and in Israel.

Josep Benet has taken part in many disc and radio recordings with a repertoire that ranges from the Middle Ages to classic 20th century composers such as Igor Stravinsky, Benjamin Britten or Luciano Berio. He is a member of the Spanish vocal ensemble La Colombina.
