The Liceu XXI Ensemble works on important pieces of avant-garde music or the music itself that is written in the classrooms of the Conservatori Liceu Foundation by the center’s composition students. This group trains students in the interpretation of contemporary repertoire, but also brings the most current and newly created music closer to the public, establishing itself as an artistic offer of great interest in the musical programming of our city dedicated to new musical languages.
Thus, it represents a unique opportunity to access what the composers of our time do, but also for the authors themselves, who have an open window within their reach at the Liceu XXI to show the world their creative work.
On this occasion, the ensemble will perform under the direction of Jordi Francés and will premiere the works of the 4th year Composition students; Sortilegi by Manel Palacín and The Last Chant of Phoenix by Somayeh Heidarvand. The ensemble will also perform Igor Stravinsky’s Danses Concertantes.
The Liceu Jove is presented as a very attractive musical proposal that helps students fully prepare for their leap into the professional world while they are in their training period. It also provides a great opportunity for music lovers in the city to access repertoires of great interest and multiple formats (from the intimacy of chamber music to the large format of symphonic and operatic productions), as well as with a great stylistic variety (from great lyrical works to contemporary and newly created repertoire, passing through jazz and modern music).
Thanks to the patronage of the Fundació “la Caixa”, the public can have access to a wide range of music in a magnificent space, the Auditori Conservatori Liceu, a space located in the heart of Barcelona’s Raval neighborhood, fully consolidated and recognized as one of the best venues of its kind in our country.
You provide the music, we bring you to the stage!
