Coinciding with the Sant Jordi celebrations, the Foundation is celebrating an open day and a concert
When the team at the Pavelló Mies van der Rohe Pavilion say that they are managing a “privileged” place, they are making a statement that is fully backed up by the facts. The pavilion on Montjuïc is an architectural marvel, a minimalist gem with the essence of a Japanese garden, and having the chance to explore it is both a joy and a privilege. If you’re interested in doing that, it’s going to be easier than ever on Sant Jordi Day since the foundation that runs it is holding an open day during which you can visit the building in the company of books and music.
The foundation’s document collection is extensive and includes many books on architecture which will now be available for everyone to consult, read slowly or simply leaf through. And if you’re in the pavilion around 12 noon, you’ll witness a special event consisting of a concert with pieces for violin and cello interpreted by the Duo Boulez, with the collaboration of the Conservatori Superior del Liceu. The repertoire is made up of compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach (a selection from his Two Voice Inventions), Arthur Honegger (Sonatine for Violin and Cello) and Erwin Schulhoff (Duo for Violin and Cello). The featured musicians will be Andrea Talavera (violin) and Paula Sánchez (cello).
You’ll find additional information on the Mies van der Rohe Foundaiton website.
