GIO Symphonia & Prat

—'Ticket to ride': Bach, Beatles, Bowie and Glass


Elena Tarrats, voice
GIO Symphonia
Francesc Prat, conductor


J. S. Bach: Brandenburg Concerto no. 5, BWV 1050
J. Lennon- P. McCartney / L. BERIO: Beatles songs
D. Bowie / Lucas i Tomàs Peire: Bowie songs (premiere)
P. GLASS: Music in similar motion


The history of music is also the story of an intense dialogue among artists. An artistic dialogue where aesthetic bonds are established, allowing every new creation to connect with its musical heritage and project itself into the future. Bach is one of the most influential composers in classical history, Berio in contemporary creation, and The Beatles in 20th-century pop. In contemporary pop and classical music, the same mixture occurs when we talk about creators like David Bowie and Philip Glass. That's why, with the intention of continuing to establish improbable connections, Lucas Peire translates in a new version the magnetism of a music that cannot be explained without each other.

In this astonishing production, the young singer and actress Elena Tarrats faces the challenge of lending her voice to astonishing creations based on songs by The Beatles and David Bowie, in a program that brings together some of the most influential musicians in history. Completely diverse worlds converge in this program, resulting in a musical explosion that is absolutely radical and surprising.
