Latin American and Iberian song: the focus of the Barcelona Festival of Song

From 25 June to 4 July, songs in Portuguese, Spanish and Catalan will ring out all around the city

This is the 12th edition of the only festival in the world dedicated to the study and promotion of the vocal repertoire of the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America, with songs in Portuguese, Spanish and Catalan. The festival has at its core an important course in the history and vocal interpretation of this repertoire, aimed primarily at singers, pianists, guitarists and musicologists.

However, for the general public, the festival has a programme of nine public recitals by a number of internationally renowned names. These concerts will be held in various venues in Barcelona between June 25 and July 4, 2016. This year’s programme will pay homage to the musician and composer Enric Granados on the anniversary of his death. Conferences, lectures and especially concerts serve to remember this important figure in music.

Among the highlights in concert format is the recital 100 Years of Song with the soprano Patricia Caicedo and Nikos Stavlas on the piano at CaixaForum (25 June); Homage to Granados with the mezzo-soprano Marisa Martins and pianist Mac MacClure at the Biblioteca de Catalunya (June 27), and Comboio de corda de cançó brasilera with the tenor Lenine Santos and pianist Achille Picchi, also in the Biblioteca de Catalunya (July 1). The closing concert (July 4) will involve the participation of all the above musicians in a unique session at the Joan Maragall Archive.
