The Cadaqués Orchestra was formed in 1988 from a group of young Spanish and other European musicians who had clear objectives as an orchestral formation: working closely with live contemporary composers, recovering a legacy of Spanish music that had been unfairly forgotten and boost the career of soloists, composers and emerging directors.

Of Mediterranean origin, but with a clear cosmopolitan vision, it was quickly recognized in the musical field for the quality and commitment of its musicians and the dynamism of its projects. Directors like Sir Neville Marriner, Gennady Rozhdestvensky or Philippe Entremont sponsored the project and became main guests, as did Alicia de Larrocha, Victoria de los Ángeles, Teresa Berganza, Paco de Lucía, Ainhoa Arteta, Jonas Kaufmann, Olga Borodina, Pablo Sainz Villegas, Khatia Buniatishvili and Juan Diego Flórez among others.
