Duration 70 minutes (no intermission)

The cultural golden era experienced in Catalonia in the second half of the 19th century during the Catalan Renaissance encouraged the use of the Catalan language throughout the arts. In music, this crystallised itself in the emergence of a rich, albeit little known, corpus of songs that created the basis for their consolidation in the following century. As part of the cycle dedicated to the vocal repertoire in different languages from the Iberian peninsula, this concert takes us on a tour through the last 150 years of Catalan songs, including the most recent compositions by two songwriters who still remain active.
