Cor de Cambra del Palau & Siebert: Palau de la Música Catalana
About the Event
In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of classical music by Schütz, J. Ch. Bach and Mendelssohn at Barcelona's treasured and world‐renowned Palau de la Música Catalana.
The German conductor Christoph Siebert is one of the greatest music experts of the Bach era, whose career is closely associated with such illustrious names as John Eliot Gardiner, René Jacobs and the renowned Collegium Vocale Gent.
Siebert and the Palau's chamber choir, the Cor de Cambra, invite us to a concert that will help us better understand the music of a golden age, with works by Schütz, Johann Christian Bach and Mendelssohn that give us a glimpse of the world before and after Bach, accompanied by Joan Seguí on organ positive and Andrew Ackerman on violin.
The concert offers the opportunity to rediscover Heinrich Schütz's Musical Exequia, an example of how conjugation with music can give a new and powerful dimension to sacred texts, based on musical innovations from Italy that bring together voices and instruments, dissonance and a dramatic spirit from the operatic genre.
