The Casa Mila, popularly known as La Pedrera (the quarry) is one of the jewels of Barcelona. It was the last civil building by Gaudi, and was considered to be controversial because of its undulating stone facade and twisting wrought iron balconies and windows.
Fast forward a century, it delights visitors to the city, and is the venue for some wonderful concerts and exhibitions.
Music at the Pedrera is one such event. This year a careful selection of the most talented young performers in Catalunya has been made.
Twenty-three candidates were whittled down to three for the 2015-2016 season. All were assessed on their artistic talent and potential for developing an outstanding career, both at home and abroad,
The chosen few are the baritone Josep-Ramon Olivé, harpist Esther Pinyol, and pianist Ricard Rovirosa.
Throughout the 2015-16 cycle, there will be a monthly concert.
• Josep-Ramon Olivé (November 15th, March 20th, April 17th)
• Ricard Rovirosa (December 20th, February 28th, May 15th)
• Esther Pinyol (January 17th, June 19th)
