L’Auditori de Barcelona Choir

This season brings us the L’Auditori de Barcelona Choir, a new cornerstone of the extensive ‎offer from L’Auditori, further enhancing the rich choral tradition of Catalonia. The Choir will ‎allow us to stage first-rate symphonic-choral productions, in collaboration with other ‎distinguished choirs in our musical ecosystem.‎

The new ensemble, conducted by Xavier Pastrana, is a professional choir that will participate ‎in four concerts during the 2020-2021 season; three concerts with the OBC, and one a ‎cappella concert. With the OBC it will perform two of the great works of the Catholic sacred ‎repertoire, Mozart's Great Mass in C minor and Haydn's The ‎Creation. We will also have a chance to hear The Plague, a mature work ‎by Robert Gerhard, based on Albert Camus’ novel ‘La Peste’, and extremely relevant in the ‎current context we are living in. For its part, the solo voice programme is set in the Barcelona ‎of 1936, where the young Benjamin Britten is sitting amongst the audience at the opening ‎ceremony of the 14th International Society for Contemporary Music Festival – which, thanks ‎to Robert Gerhard’s influence, was held in Barcelona that year.
