About the Event

Experience classical music like never before in this astonishing performance of masterworks by Pau Casals at Barcelona's remarkable Palau de la Música Catalana.

his year marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Pau Casals, one of the most universal names in Catalan culture. A renowned cello player, extraordinary orchestra conductor, excellent composer and teacher of young musicians, he considered music as an expression of commitment to peace and the dignity of people.
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his death, on October 22nd 2023, a special concert organized jointly by the Fundació Pau Casals and the Fundació Orfeó Català-Palau de la Música Catalana has been programmed, in which a reduced orchestral version will be premiered, commissioned by the Fundació Pau Casals, with the follow‐up and support of Mrs. Marta Casals, to the maestro Antoni Ros Marbà.
In 1960 Pau Casals premiered in Mexico his oratorio El pessebre, composed from the poem by Joan Alavedra, with an orchestration by his brother Enric Casals to be performed by a large orchestral ensemble and choir. Since then, Casals conducted El pessebre more than seventy times in forty‐three cities around the world. It was his banner in defense of peace and understanding.

Palau de la Música Catalana

The Palau de la Musica Catalana is a dazzling building situated in the northern part of Barcelona's Old Town. An architectural jewel of the Catalan Art Nouveau style, built between 1905 and 1908, its rich interior displays the work of the region's artisans in the form of stained-glass windows, ceramics, sculptures, paintings and blacksmithing. The extensive use of glass in the construction of the venue creates stunningly radiant interiors. The dusty red facade of the Palau is decorated with busts of great composers including Bach, Beethoven and Wagner, and colorful mosaics in floral patterns. The centre of the Palau is the magnificent concert hall, entirely lit by natural sunlight due to the extraordinary skylight in the centre of the richly ornate ceiling, which is popular for symphonic and chamber music. According to Lluís Domènech i Montaner, the architect who designed the Palau, the aim was to create a “garden for music” – an objective he definitely managed to achieve.
