Inspired by the 16th century Cervantine term, "Tercia Naturaleza", which reveals a third reality in which fantasy and the real world meet and merge. Tercia Realidad is a musical utopia directed by Jorge Jiménez in which music goes back to its origins as a language to express emotions and feelings, as well as a fusion of personalities, ideas and sounds.
Tercia Realidad not only performs, but also creates on the fly, which makes the presentation a unique experience for the audience and the musicians. Spanning a repertoire spanning from the 13th century to contemporary music, TR has performed at festivals and as: Misteria Paschalia (Poland), Early Music Festival in Stary Sacz (Poland), Utrecht Early Music Festival, Baroque Days Akbank Sanat in Istanbul (Turkey), Nights in the Alcázar Gardens in Seville (Spain), Colegio de los Ingleses de Valladolid (Spain), Bachfest Cochabamba (Bolivia), music season at Bogazici University in Istanbul (Turkey), Music Festival Sacra de Sagunt (Spain), chamber music season of the Convent of Santa Clara in Seville (Spain) and Varazdin Baroque Evenings (Croatia) among others.
Tercia Realidad's recording debut was for Atlantic Records, together with The Joy Formidable.
Its director, Jorge Jiménez, is one of the most requested violinists of our days. He is known for his meticulous and exciting approach to performing music in the style and instruments for which it was composed, from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. Apart from being the founder and director of Tercia Realidad, Jorge is concertmaster of ensembles such as: Forma Antiqva (Spain), La Arpeggiata (France), The Hanover Band (United Kingdom), La Risonanza (Italy), Capella Cracoviensis (Poland), I Fagiolini (UK) and Laudonia Ensemble (Austria). Jorge is guest concertmaster of orchestras such as the City of Granada Orchestra, Capella Cracoviensis, Valencian Community Symphony Orchestra, Principality of Asturias Orchestra, Vlaamse Opera Orchestra, as well as a regular guest as musical director at Shakespeare's Globe Theater in London, having directed the musical part of works such as "The Secret Theatre", premiering music by Alexander Balanescu and "Four Seasons" with music by Max Richter.
Having recorded for most of the major record labels (such as Hyperion, Alpha, Glossa or Atlantic Record), Jorge is an artist for the GWK Records and Pan Classics labels.
In 2022 Jorge released his solo album “Rethinking Bach: Goldberg Variations” with Pan Classics, which contains his revolutionary transcription for solo violin of Bach's famous Goldberg Variations, with great reception from critics:
