On 15 March, the Classicjazz Quartet will be performing the Concerto for classical guitar and jazz trio by French composer Claude Bolling.

On 19 April, Tot jugant a bitlles (While playing skittles) takes a look at the chamber music composed by Beethoven and Mozart.

Then on May 17, a unique project in Spain, MuOM, a chamber choir specializing in overtone singing, will be performing.

On 14 June, Projecte Arbarok closes this season of Days of Music with a journey through its baroque repertoire.

Talks at the Art Nouveau Site

As every year, the cultural programme includes four talks to share knowledge of the history of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau and discover more about the figure of Lluís Domènech i Montaner and his time. The talks will take place on Thursdays at 19:00.

On 23 January Mireia Freixa will be exploring the relationship between Domènech i Montaner and Gaudí, the master and the student.

Domènech’s biographer and great-grandson, architect Lluís Domènech Girbau, will be talking about the four main pillars that formed the personal project of the architect of Sant Pau. The talk will take place on 13 February.

Coinciding with International Women’s Day, on 5 March there’ll be a round table of women doctors of different generations who work or have worked at Sant Pau.

Nature, particularly vegetation, has a special role throughout Modernisme, the Catalan Art Nouveau. On 16 April, lecturer in Art History at the University of Barcelona, Fàtima López will be telling us how architects applied nature in their decorative programmes.

Dramatised visits

This season, the regular programme of activities is joined by the dramatised visits that began last Christmas. Visitors will be able to get to know the former Hospital de Sant Pau thanks to two of its protagonists, the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner and the nurse, Sister Maria. The visits (only in catalan) are organised on the third Saturday of the month, at 10:30.
