Guide to Classical Music, Opera and Dance in Barcelona

« I find the city electrifying! Culture is omnipresent, in all genres, Architecture, Museums, Music... History is also palpable, and playing the Bach Suites in the Palau de la Musica was an unforgettable experience, in part because the audience is younger and more dynamic than in many European cities, but also because the inevitable spirit of Casals conveys a very special energy. »
Jean-Guihen Queyrascellist
