Nostalgia is not always the best approach to music, but a return to the past that it is blended with a renewed present is something we should embrace. This concert recalls two aspects of our past: the music that characterised the Barcelona scene as the Franco era drew to a close, and an ensemble that draws on the heritage of the much-missed Teatre Lliure Chamber Orchestra. With it in mind, the Barcelona Art Orchestra (BAO) takes its first steps in asserting the need for an open, flexible structure to offer, renew and invent different repertoires. Here they focus on “música laietana”, the sound of the Barcelona movida, which originated in the Sala Zeleste club. Some of those who created this music will be taking part, alongside the BAO, with special arrangements for the occasion. A reminder of the significance of that period and a reflection of the Orchestra’s (re)creative spirit.
