Close your eyes and imagine a landscape that you can’t see, but can only hear. Are you in the countryside or the city? Is it summer, spring, winter, or autumn? Morning or evening? We’ll go on a walk with our ears wide open, to discover our natural and human environment through sounds and the music inspired by these sounds. Songs with Catalan roots, many of which have been reimagined for this occasion, given a contemporary twist and performed by five musicians who draw from both the traditional world and today’s musical trends. With staging by choreographer Sònia Gómez.
Institutional Concert of the Generalitat of Catalonia on the occasion of the opening of the Obra del Cançoner de Catalunya: Sunday 13 March at 18:30 (by invitation: firstname.lastname@example.org)
