We are thrilled to welcome countertenor Alberto Miguélez Rouco to Rayfield Allied for general management, where he will be managed by Nicki Wenham.
Alberto is a laureate of the Jardin des Voix Academy’s 10th edition (2021) and was a member of Philippe Jaroussky’s voice Academy for the 2020-2021 season. He studied singing at the Musik Akademie Basel under the mezzosoprano Rosa Domínguez, and also harpsichord and basso continuo with Francesco Corti, Giorgio Paronuzzi and Jesper Christensen.
This season’s highlights include Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea (Ottone) for the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia Valencia under the direction of Leonardo García Alarcón, Bach’s Magnificat with René Jacobs and Kammerorchester Basel, Bomtempo Requiem with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia under Carlos Mena and various concerts around Europe with Les Arts Florissants. In 2020 he recorded his first solo album Cantadas, including sacred Spanish music by José de Nebra and Francesco Corselli.
In 2018 he founded his own ensemble Los Elementos which he directs from the harpsichord, and in September 2019 he recorded José de Nebra’s baroque zarzuela Vendado es Amor, no es ciego, for the label Glossa. In 2021 he released their second album of Nebra’s Donde ay violencia, no ay culpa. This season he will conduct Nebra’s Donde hay violencia, no hay culpa with Los Elementos at the Teatro de la Zarzuela (Madrid) staged by Rafa Villalobos.
