On Sunday 8 December, the Barcelona Symphony Band presents the fifth concert of the season in L’Auditori’s Sala 2 Oriol Martorell. This sell-out concert is devoted to Walt Disney soundtracks with music from films such as Mary Poppins, Pocahontas, Frozen, and many more.
The programme begins with the unforgettable Wizard of Oz and then whisks the audience away on a magical journey through other scores from the Disney factory. The creators of dreams won their first musical Oscar with Pinocchio (1940) and their latest, to date, was with Coco (2017), in total garnering more than a dozen awards including those for Mary Poppins, Pocahontas and Frozen. The other songs included in this programme brought to us by Beatriz Fernández were also nominated. It goes without saying that the people at Disney certainly know how to write music ... magical music.
