El León de Oro

El León de Oro

2017 marked twenty years since the foundation of El León de Oro, a vocal ensemble that began life in Asturias (Spain) as a small group of friends who were passionate about singing. Over the intervening years the group has established a solid international standing, as attested by numerous awards and invitations to the finest festivals. LDO’s chief ambitions remain the search for acoustic beauty, the experiencing of polyphonic purity, and the community that emerges from assembled singing. Members are characterized by their enthusiasm and dedication: an irrefutable willingness to favour quality rather than quantity.

LDO has given a cappella concerts at distinguished Spanish, European, American and African festivals, and maintains ongoing collaborations with important Spanish orchestras, including the Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, the Oviedo Filarmonía, and the Bilbao Orkestra Sinfonikoa in performances of Bach’s Magnificat and St Matthew Passion, the Requiems by Fauré and Mozart, Beethoven’s Symphony No 9, and Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé.

In Spain, LDO recently participated in Cuenca’s Semana de Música Religiosa, with a standalone concert as well as Spem in alium with The Tallis Scholars conducted by Peter Phillips. Also noteworthy is LDO’s participation in the Festival Musika-Música, the Festival de Música Antigua in Logroño, the Festival Internacional ‘Arte Sacro’ in Madrid, and ‘Bilbao Arte Sacro’.

LDO was awarded first prize at the 2014 London International A Cappella Choir Competition, beating off competition from choral ensembles from around the world.
