Thank you so much for all your help and support! The 100% of our initial goal has been reached in just 14 days! And a day later, the first extended goal has been achieved too! Thanks!
You have helped us get our new CD off the ground and organise a concert to present our new work on November 3, 2018 at 7:30 pm in Bilbao, at the Campos Elíseos theatre. Now we have a new goal: if 5500€ are reached, we will create a web page for Soinuaren Bidaia. There will be an special section for all those who have made this project come true.
The project is truly growing and we think it is important to have a simple and modern web page in order to show all the work we carry out. That’s why we would like to ask you to share our campaign with your friends. Together we will make this project something really big! Again, thank you for your support!
In just 14 days our initial goal has been achieved: to get the new CD “Soinuaren Bidaia II” off the ground, and we really thank you! We wanted to reward your contribution, so we suggested an extended goal: to reach 4500€ in order to organise a presentation concert at the Campos Elíseos theatre in Bilbao on November 3, 2018 at 7:30 pm. This new goal has already been achieved too! As promised, Spanish Brass and Toti Martínez de Lezea will be there with the components of Soinuaren Bidaia ensemble. Those who have collaborated in this crowdfunding will be invited to the presentation. A private encounter with patrons will take place that day too in order to exchange opinions.
Thank you for the trust you have placed in our project and we hope to see you on November 3 in Bilbao!
Music is emotion.
We have started a journey through music and sound which really makes a difference when people get goose bumps listening to our music.
Soinuaren Bidaia (The Sound’s Journey) is an ensemble led by Alberto Urretxo, Principal Trombone at the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra, who is preparing his second studio album. It’s motto is “No matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop”. This album will follow a first CD which was a tornado of emotions.
It will have music by composers of the 20th and 21st centuries which will recall our origins, fear, frustration, and eventually, the search for beauty and dreams.
Along with the main components of the ensemble Soinuaren Bidaia, the internationally renowned quintet Spanish Brass also collaborate on the project.

WHAT IS SAID ABOUT US
“Last Sunday, July 17, we traveled through sound under an attentive and motherly moon in the magnificent stage of the Coracera Castle in San Martín de Valdeiglesias (Madrid). Alberto Urretxo, along with Adriana Grigoras and Amaia Zipitria, introduced us to B. Bartok, Mahler, Debussy and Piazzola, just to mention some of them. Their trombone, viola and piano talked about anxiety, fantasy, nostalgia, hope and passion. We were moved by the story of a filial forgiveness. They left a summer flavour in our hearts and the trace of good music in our ears. Congratulations. Again. Soinuaren Bidaia.”
Eloisa Pardo, poet and writer
“True culture is the work of artists such as Maite Itoiz, Alberto Urretxo, Adriana Grigoras , Amaia Zipitria, Catalin Bucataru, Iñigo Grimal and Javier Martínez. It has been a pleasure to share the stage with these extraordinary musicians. And also a pleasure to feel the support and warmth of the audience. I thank you from my heart.”
Toti Martínez de Lezea, writer
“Last night in Bilbao these friends (Soinuaren Bidaia) gave us a lesson on music, mythology and history. That’s all I have to say, for these things are meant to be lived and felt, not just told.”
Antonio González, audience
