Guide to L'Auditori

L'Auditori is a modern building with premises covering 42,000 square metres. Designed by architect Rafael Moneo, it was officially opened on 22 March 1999. It is Barcelona's most recently created music venue and home of the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra and the Barcelona Symphony Band. Situated at the heart of the new area of urban development in Plaça de les Glòries, where the city's three widest and longest avenues (Diagonal, Gran Via and Meridiana) converge. It is near the city's historic centre, the Eixample, the Teatre Nacional, the Glòries complex, the point where Diagonal reaches the sea, district 22 and the Forum area.

The building combines the restrained modernity of its exterior with Sala 1 Pau Casals for 2,200 spectators, Sala 2 Oriol Martorell with 600 seats, Sala 3 Tete Montoliu with 400 seats and Sala 4 Alicia de Larrocha with 152 seats. The same complex houses the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya and the Museum of Music. L'Auditori is thus a focal point for music in Barcelona, in the fields of dissemination, education and research.

Sublime interpretación por parte de la OBC, reforzada para la ocasión, en L'Auditori de Barcelona, que mostró la genial habilidad de Mahler para evocar mundos enteros.

La WDR de Colonia es sin duda una de las mejores orquestas europeas, y Jukka-Pekka Saraste a conseguido un ambiente en su seno difícil de igualar, y éso se nota en cada interpretación.

This season, the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya (OBC) is turning its eyes towards Bach, whilst at the same time programming the usual great symphonic repertoire, as well as contemporary composers. Here, Kazushi Ono gathered a Bach concerto (transcribed for violin), a rarely-performed work by Schumann and Richard Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra.
