Prop del mar! A Musical Commemoration to Celebrate and Honor our Musical and Literary Heritage in the Centenary of the Deaths of Àngel Guimerà and Joan Salvat-Papasseit, two pivotal figures in Catalan literature united by the sea in their lives and work.

The Joan Manén Association and the El Cor Canta Association proudly present this concert that will bring to life the works left to us by great names in Catalan literature and music. Composers Enric Morera, Eduard Toldrà, and Francesc Pujol, featured in the program, are authors who have gifted us with excellent musical works, often unknown to the general public. The three featured composers also serve as a splendid example of the magical and enriching symbiosis between literature and music.

The revival of an almost unheard-of work by Joan Manén, his Concerto for Cello and Orchestra, will highlight the work carried out by the Joan Manén Association, while Camí de sol by Gerard López, based on poems by Papasseit and the winning composition of the second edition of the composition contest promoted by El Cor Canta, will conclude the program.

This production will also take place at the Fortuny Theater in Reus abd Àngel Guimerà Theater in El Vendrell, thanks to the collaboration with these venues and their city councils.
