On the 22nd of February, beginning at 6 pm, the Petit Palau concert hall, part of the Palau de la Música Catalana, will host a tribute concert to William Shakespeare. The one-off performance will feature the Palau de la Música Chamber Choir accompanied by Pere Arquillué as recitalist. The concert, entitled Shakespeare, will combine choral music based around texts by the popular English playwright with music by a composer of the same era, John Dowland.
In addition to Dowland, the performance will also include works by other composers the likes of Ralph Vaughan Williams, Xavier Pagès-Corella, Frank Martin, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi and Josep Vila i Casañas.
