GUITAR ENSEMBLE

 

In 2006, Javier Farías founded the Ensamble de Guitarras de Chile, a group that brings together the most outstanding performers of the Chilean guitar scene.  In its ten years of existence, there have been more than 60 guitarists who have participated in this ensemble, premiering more than 20 works that composers from Chile, Argentina, France, Taiwan, Greece, and Puerto Rico have specially written for them.

“Arauco, por fuerte, principal y poderosa…”, and “¡Arma! ¡Enfrena! ¡Aína!” are two works that Javier Farias composed for the ensemble during the period of 2007 and 2009. Both compositions are inspired on the text “La Araucana”, written in the mid- 16th century by Alonso de Ercilla y Zúñiga.

“Arauco: por fuerte, principal y poderosa…”
