Christmas is intrinsically linked in the collective imagination to a series of small pleasures with which we spoil the five senses; that of sight, with cities full of bright lights; to touch, with the children's delight of unwrapping gift packages; and that of the smells and taste, with the aromas and flavors of the delicious traditional agapes of these dates.
Also to the ear, because every year they return the most emotional concerts in emblematic stages. Enjoying the best soundtracks that the seventh art has given us or the usual classics are the proposals of the appetizing cycle organized by the Excelentia Foundation.
The Christmas soundtrack: a true cinema plan
Is about four sessions that will take place at the Palau de la Música and L’Auditori de Barcelona, a poker program to which more attractive that will take place on December 10, 22 and 26, and which will close on January 8. Four proposals to consider to give, or why not, to give to ourselves.
The first date will be the day December 10 at the Palau de la Música, where an essential of these dates will sound, El Mesías de Händel. The London & Vienna Kammerorchester and the Excelentia vocal Ensemble, under the direction of Kynan Johns, will be responsible for sounding this great work.
The concert will feature soloists of great prestige such as soprano Rocío Martínez, tenor Víctor Sordo, mezzo Marta Infante and bassist David Cervera. As a welcome promotion to the Christmas holidays, you have a 50% discount by typing the discount code MESIAS19. L’Auditori de Barcelona will take over to host the next two magical nights, in which some of the most remembered soundtracks in film history will sound.
The first of the concerts, on December 22, will be a real injection of energy for the public, which will enjoy A program
in charge of the Royal Film Concert Orchestra in which the great successes of the Marvel Universe will be reviewed
and the most remembered epic music scores of cinema.
Thus, the notes of films as box office as The Avengers, Captain America, Transformers, The Lord of the Rings, The Dark Knight or Pearl harbor they will vibrate L’Auditori strongly. Attendees will also relive, through music, the scenes of Star wars – Imperial March, Ben Hur, Braveheart or Gladiator. A safe and transgenerational bet, in which every year you can see audiences of very different ages sharing a movie night.
A St. Stephen ‘Made in Hollywood’
Almost as classic as cannelloni is attending a concert on St. Stephen's Day, December 26th. In L’Auditori, another evening will take place with all the evocative flavor of the seventh art
, baptized as "Hollywood at Christmas".
It will review the soundtracks of all periods and styles, with melodies such as Forrest Gump, Life is beautiful, Harry Potter or Memories of Africa. As a final climax to these holidays, The Palau de la Música will host on January 8 a very special concert that will involve the audience with the music of Ludovico Einaudi, one of the most outstanding and prestigious musicians of the last decades. The night will be a tribute to the great Turin, where both piano and orchestra will give life to their greatest hits. A waste of talent and good vibes for the public to face 2020 in the best possible way.
