ADDA·SIMFÒNICA collaborates with guest conductors such as maestro Valery Gergiev, Christian Lindberg, Álvaro Albiach, Jurjen Hempel, Yaron Traub and Carles Magraner as well as with soloists as prestigious as Maria João Pires, Pacho Flores, Ángeles Blancas, Stefano Bollani, Denis Kozhukhin, Juan Floristán, Varvara Nepomnyashchaya, Damián Martínez, María Florea, Sandra Ferrández, Alexander Ullman, Iván Martín, Joan Enric Lluna, Ginesa Ortega, Marina Heredia, Cañizares, Juan Echanove, Joaquín Achúcarro, Igor Yebra…etc. Michael Nyman, David Mora and Per Egland have written works for the orchestra. Other remarkable projects were performed with the Choir of the Madrid Region, Orfeó Valencià, Spanish Brass, and Títeres Etcétera. 

In addition to its symphonic activities, the orchestra has an important commitment to contemporary music and historical repertoire and plays a significant social and pedagogical role in the region. It has performed concerts at the Festival “Summer of Purpose” Munich, Grupo Planeta’s Azorín Award, the National Sports Gala and the opening of the Volvo Ocean Race. It has also collaborated with the acclaimed theatre and opera group La Fura dels Baus, in productions of Carmina Burana and Haydn’s The Creation.

Stand-out recordings of the orchestra include works by Stravinsky, Mahler, Beethoven, Prokofiev, Barber, Manuel de Falla and Shostakovich, which were highly praised by music critics. The prestigious Melómano de Oro was awarded to the “Music for Emorions” album and recently an international contract has been signed to record three CDs for the label Warner Classics.

Acclaimed performances at Valencia’s Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía and Castelló’s Auditori under the baton of chief conductor Josep Vicent were highlighted last season, and in the coming months ADDA·SIMFÒNICA will tour China and will be present on the stage of festivals in Italy and Holland, performing with artists such as Labèque sisters and Denis Kozhukhin.

"The Stradivarius cello at the Palacio real discovered colors and intensities that the National Heritage conservators had never heard before, when they put it in the hands of Guillermo Pastrana (I was present when they affirmed it). It's the same thing that happens when you give a great orchestra to an exceptional maestro. ADDA·Simfònica is, without a doubt, a world-class instrument".


"ADDA·SIMFÒNICA orchestra has GIVEN one of its most brilliant performances since it was founded last summer by its chief conductor, Josep Vicent. This has been the architect of an absolutely memorable evening".


“The acclaim of the public was overwhelming and unanimous. The almost unbearable joy experienced was thanks to the sincerity, generosity and magnificence of an unforgettable performance that will become a highlight in Josep Vicent’s career and will go down in the history of the orchestra for an unforgettable experience in the musical and artistic life of Alicante” 


“Arriva da Alicante, in Spagna la storia di Adda Simfònica. Ha conquistato 18 identità e pubblico”. AMADEUS, Italy.
