For an extraordinary evening of piano classics, visit the impressive Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona to hear the masterpieces of Brahms, Chopin and Scriabin.

Johannes Brahms


Johannes Brahms was a German composer and pianist of the 19th century who influenced the music of the Romantic period. He composed for voice, piano, symphony orchestra, chamber ensembles and chorus. In fact, his reputation as a composer grouped him with Beethoven and Bach as one of the three Bs of music, in other words one of the greatest figures of classical music. As a matter of fact, Brahms worked with leading performers such as Clara Schumann and Joseph Joachim. As a result, many of his works became staples of the modern repertoire for their uncompromising perfectionism.

Frederic Chopin


Frederic Chopin was a Polish composer and pianist of the Romantic area early 19th century. He wrote primarily piano solos but also piano concerts, chamber pieces and songs set to Polish lyrics. He is well‐known as a poetic genius without competition of his generation. In fact, he created the concept of instrumental ballade and his performances were noted for their sensitivity and fine distinction. He spent most of his life in Paris, where he performed for the intimate atmospheres of salons. For most of his life, he suffered poor health. As a result, he died quite young at the age of 39, probably of tuberculosis.

Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin


Gaetano Donizetti was an Italian composer of the early 19th century. He was one of the leading composers of the bel canto opera style along with Gioachino Rossini and Vincenzo Bellini. Over the course of his career, Donizetti wrote almost 70 operas both comic and serious. His first notable success came with a serious opera, Zoraida di Granata, which was presented in 1822 in Rome. As a result, he made a major impact on the Italian and international opera scene and shifted the attention to opera seria noble and 'serious' style operas. However, his best‐known works include comedies such as L'elisir d'amore 1832 and Don Pasquale 1843.
