Vespres d'Arnadí brings Baroque music to the streets of Barcelona

This festival is the first initiative of this kind to be held in the city

For the first time ever, Barcelona will be hosting the Vespres d'Arnadí Festival, which will offer people the chance to hear Baroque music in historically relevant spaces in the city.

 

This first edition will feature music related to Vivaldi’s Venice, a city where the most outstanding European composers premiered part of their works. Domènec Terradellas, a Catalan, was among these composers. He premiered two of his operas, Artaserse and Imeneo in Atene. In addition, according to period records, the Pla brothers performed some of their instrumental pieces in the Serenissima. Musicologist Josep Dolcet will be giving an introductory talk about the composers and contemporary 18th-century Venice before every concert. The concerts will be performed by Vespres d’Arnadí, featuring Dani Espasa (soloist and conductor), Emiliano Gonzalez Toro (tenor), María Hinojosa (soprano), Marta Infante (mezzo-soprano), Farran Sylvan James (violin), and Pere Saragossa (oboe).

 

These recitals will take place at Plaça Sant Felip Neri and the first one is scheduled for the 15th of June with the title I virtuosi mendicanti, featuring music by Vivaldi, Händel and Joan and Josep Plà.
