Mediterranean Guitar Festival - Concierto de Aranjuez
A tribute to classical music, a wonderful concert!
The Maresme Orchestra with conductor Jordi Montoliu and guitarist Celil Refik Kaya perform the famous Aranjuez Concert.
The Concerto de Aranjuez was written in Paris, to reflect the gardens of the Royal Palace of Aranjuez. The play attempts to convey to the listener the sounds of nature from another place and another time. The melancholy notes of the first and second movements are reminiscent, according to some writers and poets, of the last time Boabdil saw his beloved Alhambra before leaving for Morocco. Other authors refer to the sad and beautiful notes as a reminder of the tragic events of the Spanish Civil War.
Day and time August 15 at 9 p.m.
Location: Church of Our Lady of the Snows.
