Sant Jordi is almost here and, like every year, L’Auditori de Barcelona wants to mark Catalonia’s own Valentine’s Day by making music more accessible to different audiences. We are therefore launching a special offer of 1,000 tickets to a performance by the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra.
Anyone buying tickets as part of this special offer can choose one of the six events making up the final straight of the OBC’s Spring Season, featuring artists of the calibre of violinists Viktoria Mullova and Daniel Hope, the sisters Kristine and Margarita Balanas, oboist Ramón Ortega Quero and the voices of mezzo-soprano Nancy Fabiola Herrera and contralto Anna Larsson.
Another highlight is the presence of three female conductors, Ruth Reinhardt, Anja Bihlmaier and Shi-Yeon Sung, who are stirring up the international scene and will be leading the OBC for the first time. Vasily Petrenko and Kazushi Ono will also be conducting.
As to the repertoire, and always with the idea of creation – the season’s main theme – as the central focus, there will be some genuine masterpieces, such as Luciano Berio’s Rendering, which is a reconstruction of Schubert’s last symphony, Vaughan Williams’Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, Schoenberg’s Gurre-Lieder sung by Nancy Fabiola Herrera and conducted by Vasily Petrenko, and Mendelssohn’s “Reformation” Symphony.
The performances of works such as Kaija Saariaho’s Forty Hearbeats, Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder, or Sibelius’ Violin Concerto, are also worth mentioning. All this in addition to the world premiere of a work by the season’s guest composer, Cassandra Miller.
When buying tickets, you must select Zone 2, your chosen location and your seat and click on “SANT JORDI offer”. The promotion is available on 23 April for 72 hours only.
