Joan Guinjoan protagonist of the 3rd Contemporary Music

Joan Guinjoan, one of the leading figures in Spanish contemporary music in the past fifty years, in his dual role as conductor-pianist and composer, is in the spotlight at this year's Contemporary Music Festival of Barcelona. A concert cycle of his works opened this past Oct. 15 with a performance by Barcelona 216. Guinjoan was surrounded by the organizers of the cycle, the Caixa Catalunya Foundation and Musicadhoy, and by composers and performers who praised his figure. Throughout the cycle, his works will be interpreted by some of the top musicians in contemporary music, including Horacio Lavandera, who performed "Verbum" on October 27 and the Cuarteto Diotima, String Quartet on Nov. 5. All concerts are at the Caixa Catalunya Auditorium in Barcelona.
