The museum will host a series of concerts inspired by its exhibits.
Mixing music and museums is nothing new - many exhibition spaces host concerts with the aim of creating a special atmosphere, both for observing art and for listening to music. The Frederic Marès Museum has been organising a cycle titled 'Setting music to the Frederic Marès Museum' for the last four years, and this edition in particular aims to add a musical component to the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the creation of the museum. The resulting musical programme is therefore linked to the figure of the sculptor and collector Frederic Marès, paying special attention to the recently renovated exhibition space known as the Studio-Library. The programme features five concerts spread over four months, each of which is dedicated and inspired by different exhibited works.
The cycle will run from 17 February to 16 June and the concerts will take place at 12 noon at the Frederic Marès Museum. The action will begin on 17 February with a concert dedicated to the Portrait of Jaume Pahissa featuring a quintet made up of ESMUC music school alumni. A very special activity is scheduled for 17 March: a parade with popular music through the Gothic Quarter, ending with a concert in the courtyard of the museum to celebrate the Spring Festival. On Palm Sunday, 14 April, there will be a concert of Renaissance and Baroque music by Belén Vaquero and Carles Blanch. On 12 May there will be a performance by Marta Valero and Joaquin Panadès to pay tribute to the exhibit Patti’s Fan. The last concert will be on 16 June, with a repertoire of early music by students and teachers from the ESMUC music school.
Admission to all the concerts except the one including the parade costs €6.20. Additional information is available at the following link.
