Barcelona's music museum is staging an exhibition of material that links the two worlds of composer Enric Granados: sound and image.
Enric Granados was born 150 years ago and his influence on Barcelona culture can still be felt today. His music has passed the tests of time and is nowadays a world reference in classical music. And that's thanks to a quality in his music that goes beyond its sounds: it lies in its aromas of folklore, its melodic suppleness and its ability to conjure up images. As a composer, Granados paid a lot of attention to visual aspects and many of his works, like, for example, his ‘Goyescas’, simply cannot be understood without taking into account the influence of Francisco de Goya. Granados was also a painter himself and toured the world with his music in search of images that would enrich his experiences. Now, an exhibition that will take place within the framework of the Year of Granados at Barcelona's Museu de la Música addresses his obsessions and his travels.
‘Granados, from París to Goya’ is an exploration of everything that made up Granados' talent and intelligence, from his stays in Paris and New York to his admiration for Goya. The exhibition, which is scheduled to run until 20 May 2018, will also offer guided visits, concerts and a series of parallel activities designed to immerse museum-goers in the particular universe of Granados. The exhibition is curated by Joaquim Rabaseda.
