Music in Barcelona

Music is a major part of the cultural activity of ht city. In recent years there has been a significant increase in the range of classical music on offer thanks to the opening of new facilities such as the Auditori (home to the Orquesta Simfònica de Barcelona, and the Conservatori, and future site of the Museu de la Música, the Liceu (which since reopening has diversified its programme to include concerts and recitals), the Sala Winterthur, the Auditori of the Caixa de Catalunya in the Pedrera, or the Auditori of the Centre Cultural of the Fundació La Caixa, among others. Alongside these, the city has other concert venues with an even longer history, such as the el Palau de la Música, with a new extension currently in construction.

There have recently been a number of new initiatives in the realm of contemporary and experimental music, such as the Festival of Contemporary Musics (performing work by composers of the present century), the Sónar Festival of Advanced Musics (with a focus on the relations between music and new technologies), BAM (a major showcase for the independent music scene), and Gràcia Territori Sonor (a project in the Gràcia district centred on experimental music). All of these initiatives, conceived as a stimulus to the latest forms of musical creativity, complement the city's more 'mainstream' music activities.

All of the richness of this musical diversity is symbolized each year in the Festa de la Música, which takes music out onto the streets of the city in a whole range of different settings, with the involvement of an ever-increasing number of professional and amateur musicians, visitors to the city, and the people of Barcelona themselves.
