Els Vespres d’Hivern at the University of Barcelona reach this year with the aim of showing the most referential and particular music proposals of the contemporary emerging scenario. With a risky, open and cross-sectional criteria which is typical of the series, the program includes projects of great artistic value, showing its new albums in Barcelona. On the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th of February, at 8 p.m., the Paranimph of the Historical Building will be the window to four exclusive performances.
This year’s program offers the chance to enjoy the scene of the feminist flamenco show by Laboratoria Flamenco; the warm universe of the singer-songwriter Maria Jaume Martorell; the dreamy and sophisticated pop by the duo Cor Blanc, and the powerful virtuosity of the pianist and composer Carles Viarnès. Projects full of personality, vigour, experimentation, and love for the music.
Tickets for the first concert will be available after January 21. Tickets are free and have to be downloaded from the website. Bear in mind there is limited room capacity.
Artistic direction and coordination of the cycle are carried out by Mireia Madroñero and count on the production of Bankrobber.
