Palau de la Música Catalana

"Palau  de la Música Catalana" (Music Palace), is a concert hall designed by the architec Lluís Domènech i Montaner and opened in 1908.This building is the headquarters of "Orfeó Catala", a prestigious institution grounded in the year 1891 to support Catalan music and culture. This is why the decoration of building shows some representations of the "quatre barres" (which is the Catalan coat of arms).

Inside all the scene is an sculpture representing in one side the "Ride of Walkiries" and in the other side, the figure of Beethoven, sculpted by Pau Gargallo and Dídac Massana.The splendid central glass light on the roof was made by Rigalt and Granell. The façade is made in red brick and decorated with mosaics from Lluís Bru.

The Palau de la Música Catalana organises daily guided tours of the Modernist Concert hall and, when available, Lluís Millet Hall and the Chamber Music Hall.

Firstly, my wife and I visited the Palau de la Musica a couple of weeks ago. What a spectacular building! Our tour guide was most informative and the whole experience was one of the highlights to our holiday. Secondly, whilst perusing the setting, and listening to that evenings group sound checking, it struck me that this is a location which would be ideal for a concert by Peter Hammill (or even his group Van Der Graaf Generator!). I know that Peter does play regularly in Spain, and has done for over 40 years, and has a substantial fan base there. I feel that a concert there by Peter (and/or VDGG) would be a fine addition to the concerts you feature and would be interested to know how your thoughts.
