The Barcelona Municipal Band, an organisation founded as a wind and percussion orchestra in 1886 taking up a tradition going back more than a hundred years and strongly marked by the stamp of the conductor Joan Lamonte de Grignon, opens 30 Minutes of Music today with a concert intended to commemorate the one that took place in this same venue in 1925. That concert, intended as a tribute to Richard Strauss, was attended by the German composer who, when it was over, praised the band, expressed his desire to conduct it – he did so a few days later in the Plaça Sant Jaume – and invited it to perform in Germany. Strauss is therefore present in today’s programme alongside Wagner – to mark the bicentenary of his birth; Britten – with a Catalan-inspired work linked to the city; and our own Joaquim Serra and Enric Morera.
