30 Minutes of Classical at Caixa Catalunya’s La Pedrera
The perfect union between musical and architectural heritage is being presented in 30 Minutes of Classical at Caixa Catalunya’s La Pedrera, a series of three daily chamber concerts throughout the month of August, which has become one of the most important summer musical events in Barcelona following the overwhelming success of the first three editions.
This initiative, in conjunction with Caixa Catalunya’s Social Work, will bring audiences outstanding performers from Spain such as the opening trio, formed by Arnau Tomàs, José Luis Estellés and Hyo-Sun Lim, or the Arriaga Tria, who will close the series with a careful selection of works by Beethoven, Brahms, Shostakovich and Montsalvatge. Little moments of pure beauty.
