Beethoven and the Ghosts of Music. Commissioned by the Palau de la Música Catalana (absolute premiere)
The Palau Vincles choirs and all the people involved in this social project at the Palau de la Música will take to the stage to perform the results of several month’s work on an interpretation of the cantata by composer Marian Márquez and playwright Ariadna Pastor. The piece was commissioned by the institution and is designed to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven—although it has had to wait a few extra months to be heard due to the pandemic.
This concert aims to allow choral singers to come into contact with classical music through a cantata in which the most important composers from the history of music will be present, with the persona and work of the German musician as the guiding theme.
