Antoni Gaudí’s emblematic building will celebrate the arrival of the New Year with a concert featuring Cor Vivaldi and organist David Malet.
The year 2018 has already arrived, but we are still in time to celebrate. Palau Güell, a building designed by Antoni Gaudí that currently belongs to the Diputació de Barcelona, is hosting a special musical evening to kick off the new season. Palau Güell was originally a spectacular family home that hosted chamber music concerts by mid-sized formations and is, therefore, very well prepared for this type of event. The evening of 13 January sees a programme of religious music featuring Cor Vivaldi, conducted by Òscar Boada, with the support of organist David Malet.
The repertoire includes ancient and modern religious music: two pieces by Benjamin Britten ('Jubilate Deo' and 'Missa Brevis'), ‘De les Vesperae pro festo Sancti Innoventi', an 18th century piece by Johann M. Haydn - the brother of the famous Joseph, the instrumental piece 'Nigra sum' by Pau Casals, and fragments from Edvard Grieg's symphonic poem Peer Gynt'.
Tickets, which include a glass of cava, can be purchased here.
