The performances, which you can listen to every Sunday in April at 8 pm, feature a repertoire ranging from baroque to new music, as well as exploring L’Auditori’s various programme series, such as the OBC, the Festival Llums d’Antiga and the Beethoven 2020 Festival.
The soloists performing in the concerts include, among others, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, violist Antoine Tamestit, clarinettist Joan Enric Lluna and harpsichordist Justin Taylor, conducted by Kazushi Ono, Giedrė Šlekytė and Dani Espasa.
