The JOSB, which has already played three World premieres: Ouroboros, by Albert Carbonell (2017), T-Bon Salero, by Carlos Vallés (2018), and Llàgrimes de tardor, by Pau Riedweg (2020), continues the support to young composers and the new creation with the premiere of “Refractions” work of the young composer Diego Cobián.
Diego Cobián (b. 1997) is a Mexican composer, whose music seeks to incorporate the vitality of the contemporary spirit with the sophistication of the classical tradition, while exploring the power of art as an agent of spirituality in the postmodern world. Diego studied COMPOSITION at the Pan American University, in Mexico City, and at the Liceu Conservatory in Barcelona. In Two Cities he has had the OPPORTUNITY to Receive Instruction from a few of the most renowned contemporary composers on their respective Musical Scenes; Gabriela Ortiz, Mario Lavista and Samuel Zyman in Mexico, and Benet Casablancas in Barcelona. He is currently working on “Refraction”, an orchestral work that will be premiered by the JOSB conducted by maestro Iñigo Pirfano in May 2021.
