NOT ONLY A CONCERT

Providing a unique experience to the audience, all of our recitals are produced in architectural works with historical meaning to the city and famous for their beauty and unique acoustic, such as the Palau de la Música Catalana, “jewel of Catalan modernism” and where the Concert of Aranjuez was interpreted for the first time in 1940, and the churches of Santa Maria del Pi and Sant Jaume, the latter built along the centuries over an ancient synagogue.
