Music has the power to express emotions, for that reason Shakespeare has inspired many composers to write. We start the season with works inspired by the dramas that portray human passions, from hate, guilt and revenge to friendship, longing and love. Under the guidance of the new principal conductor of the Band: José Rafael Pascual-Vilaplana.

Program

Tchaikovsky was deeply inspired on several occasions by the works of Shakespeare, but it was the symphonic version of Romeo and Juliet that was his life’s work. He created three different versions of the work, and after fifteen years of wrestling with it, he finally had a work that did justice to the original play. Alfred Reed also wrote music for Shakespeare: on this occasion we present his vision of Hamlet. The programme opens with a work composed by Brotons to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the National Library of Spain and a brilliant concert for piano and concert band by André Waignein, an energetic and romantic work in the safe hands of one of our most acclaimed pianists: Albert Guinovart.
