Young composers create their own musical works inspired by Picasso’s 'Las Meninas'
Who is not familiar with Velazquez’s Las Meninas? Another well-known work of art known as Las Meninas is a series of 58 images painted by Pablo Picasso in 1957, which are an exhaustive reinterpretation of Velazquez’s original work. The suite can be found at Barcelona’s Picasso Museum and is the only series by Picasso that has survived intact. It features 45 interpretations of Velazquez’s original, nine scenes of a dove and one portrait of Jacqueline.
The Picasso Museum is now offering the chance to experience sessions for which a group of young composers have looked to Picasso’s Las Meninas for inspiration for the creation of their own musical works. This event will be the debut performance of the compositions by students at the Liceu Conservatory and is a great opportunity to enjoy both art and music. The event consists of two musical visits to the collection in the museum at 7pm and 7.45pm and a concert at 9pm presented by music researcher and critic Jorge de Persia.
