On the 6th of July the renowned conductor will lead a concert dedicated to Wagner, while the concert on the 7th will feature Verdi
Argentinian pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim will visit the Palau de la Música two nights running to head up a programme designed to place Barcelona firmly in the musical spotlight.
In the first concert on Monday the 6th of July the renowned conductor will attempt to reveal the influence of Wagner on certain British composers. In order to achieve this, Barenboim will initially lead the Staatskapelle Berlin (Berlin State Orchestra) in the interpretation of a selection of Wagnerian pieces such as the prelude and Good Friday Spell from the opera Parsifal and the prelude to The mastersingers of Nuremberg before finishing up with the Symphony No 1 in A flat, Op. 55, by English composer Sir Edward Elgar.
Verdi will be the protagonist of the following day's concert in which Barenboim, accompanied by the Orfeó Català and the Cor de Cambra of the Palau de la Música will collaborate for the first time on a programme featuring the Quattro Pezzi Sacri, or Four Sacred Pieces, by Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi. The programme will also include the overture to I Vespri Siciliani, the overture and prelude to acts I and III of La Traviata and the overture to La Forza del Destino.
