Sagrada Familia - Barcelona : Barcelona Symphony Orchestra conducted by Kazushi OnoBack to the list
Directors: Jean-Pierre Loisil
Producer: Les Films Jack Fébus
Language: Live concert
Country of Production: France
From the very heart of the city’s most famous monument, the Sagrada Familia, the BSO’s new Musical Director, Japanese conductor Kazushi Ono, opens the 2015-2016 season of concerts. On the program are works from the sacred repertoire by Vivancos, Toru Takemitsu, Mozart and Faure’s magnificent Requiem.
For his first season at the head of the BSO, Kazushi Ono is striking a bold note: the orchestra is playing for the first time in the nave of the Sagrada Familia, performing a program chosen to reflect the architectural intensity of the mystical location imagined by Gaudi. An exceptional event in this, the city’s emblem and monument charged with powerful symbolism, that is the subject of one of the rare recordings at this prestigious site.
Baritone Josep Ramon Olivé, soprano Eugenia Boix, the Cor Jove de l’Orfeó Català and the French Madrigal Choir gather in the nave of the basilica to perform the most famous Mass for the Dead in the French repertoire, Faure’s Requiem, the major work in this concert.
A perfect way to combine the two arts cherished by the city of Barcelona: Gaudi’s architecture and symphonic music.
