For yet another year, the Mallorca International Chamber Music Festival acts as a vehicle for transmitting cultural and artistic values ​​for residents and tourists. This year the Festival reaches its third edition and has wanted to expand and diversify its usual format to offer 20 concerts that are part of different series and artistic disciplines, such as the Miró Music Series.

The artistic project has been possible thanks to the collaboration of the Association of Classical Music Interpreters of the Balearic Islands. Also thanks to the musician Rodrigo Vila, the Lítore Quartet saxophone quartet and the classical and contemporary dancer, Catalina Carrasco. Thanks to them, the Fundació has contributed to producing a project that favors culture and deepens the musical values ​​of Joan Miró himself.

Miró Music Series is made up of a set of  5 micro concerts with saxophone and dance music and in a unique setting such as the different spaces and buildings of the Fundació Miró Mallorca.  5 exceptional chamber music concerts that you can see and enjoy with just a click on the one you like the most:

Music and poetry were throughout Miró’s life a source of inspiration, a refuge and a desire to share and experiment beyond his own pictorial evolution.

The Miró Music Series wants to be a musical journey through the life and work of the artist that spans from his early days in Barcelona, ​​when music played a central role in his artistic training, through Paris, where Miró established a close relationship with some of the most prominent composers of his time and into Palma de Mallorca, where he lived and worked for nearly three decades and assembled what is undoubtedly an extremely eclectic record collection. Miró related and established a great friendship with different composers and musicians such as Pierre Boulez, Varèse, Duke Ellington, John Cage, Raimon or Maria del Mar Bonet.
