Premieres are not always allowed the diffusion or contact with the public they deserve. On the other hand, ICTs now make things much easier for us by breaking down the barriers of distance and announcing those novelties we wouldn’t want to miss out on in our homes.
El libro de los secretos is the result of reasoned hard work by the Zaragozan composer Jesús Torres. It was commissioned by the OBC (Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya ), the same orchestra that will premiere the work today on 18 November, led by its current conductor Pablo González. The venue is the Sala Paul Casals in the Auditori de Barcelona at 09:00 pm.
For those who are unable to attend the premiere there will be two more opportunities in the same auditorium and with the same performers, on Saturday 20 November at 7:00 pm and Sunday 21 at 11:00 am.
But if you cannot attend any of the three sessions, no problem! Three important broadcast stations will air these concerts.
Fruit of a new agreement between OBC and Medici TV we will have the opportunity to watch the Saturday concert on-line and live. Medici TV is an essential medium for the diffusion of orchestral activities worldwide and a guarantee of quality for listeners.
Connection to the platform is easy and free for three days and allows online access to countless concerts stored for viewing and listening on demand. But there is one point that deserves special mention: this is the first time Medici TV will broadcast a concert from the Auditori in Barcelona with the OBC and Pablo González.
Likewise, the Sunday concert will be broadcast live by Catalunya clàssica radio on its MP classics programme. And there’s still more! RTVE will rebroadcast this concert at 08:00 pm on Sunday 23.
And so we think that with so many opportunities to listen to the concert synchronously or asynchronously (as the new communicators like to put it), there is no valid excuse for missing the music in El libro de los secretos.
