Every Saturday and Sunday until the end of April in the museum's exhibition hall at plaça del Rei
The Museu d'Història de Barcelona (MUHBA) plays host to a cycle of brief concerts every Saturday and Sunday evening, running from 9 February until 28 April, entitled Barcelona i els intèrprets. The initiative, a coproduction involving MUHBA and the Mas i Mas Foundation, seeks to highlight the role of the performers who have chosen the city as the starting point from which to develop their concert-playing careers.
Each performance is repeated three times, at 18:00, 19:00 and 20:00, and the venue is MUHBA’s Martí l'Humà room in the plaça del Rei – a truly exceptional setting.
The programme includes recitals of piano music, guitar music, groups comprising various combinations of stringed instruments, detours into the vocal field... in short, a varied selection that pays tribute to the repertoires of an equally diverse range of composers: Debussy, Bartók, Bach, Schubert and Chopin, but also more local figures such as Ferran, Enric Morera, Xavier Montsalvatge and EduardToldrà.
The cycle reaches its finale on 30 April with a closing concert, a piano recital by Jordi Camell, which will serve as the opportunity to unveil the record Chopin Variations to mark the National Day of Poland.
