Barcelona, 1st of July, 2003.- The prestigious guitar
player Manuel González, a member of the Gaudí &
Barcelona Club, presents this summer the third edition of the
cycle of concerts "The guitar and the Romanesque Art".
Under the musical outline "The musical landscapes of Gaudí",
González evokes the spaces which were the source of inspiration
for the Catalan architect and to several composers of this country.
The Gaudí & Barcelona Club Association, www.gaudiclub.com,
collaborates with Manuel González in the preparing of this
cycle which starts next Thursday 3rd of July.
In the setting of two Romanesque churches of Barcelona,
Sant Pau del Camp and Sant Pere de les Puel·les, the musician
will play every Thursdays, from July to September the works of Sors,
Father A. Soler and Albéniz. The prestigious guitar players Carles
Trepat and Fernando Rodríguez, and also the Guitar Quartet Camera
XXI, will take part in this cycle of concerts, making the present edition
of "The Guitar and the Romanesque Art" to surpass the previous
ones because of the variety of ensembles and performers which will be
able to be heard, which programs include works from the XVI to XX centuries.
The work of Antoni Gaudí is one synthesis of
very diverse influences. The catholic religiosity , the mediaeval architecture,
the Islamic art and the forms of nature are some of the ingredientes
which form the architect's personal style. This cycle evokes by means
of music some representative spaces of these influences.
