Festival Pollença

Daniel Hope: The British violinist’s version and interpretation of Vivaldi at last year’s festival was such an impressive experience that Daniel Hope is coming back to the Claustre. This time the violinist will perform with a group of soloists. Air – A Baroque Journey, one of the latest records by Hope, features a programme of great works of Baroque music, which deserve their place in the history of music.

Mexican Culture: Mexican poetry, cookery workshops, cinema, and various music performances put Mexican culture firmly in the spotlight.

Sebastian Knauer: At the peak of his amazing career, the German pianist Sebastian Knauer, gifted with outstanding musicality and virtuosity, offers a programme of works by Beethoven and Schubert executed with singular originality to fill the Claustre with his interpretative beauty.

The Antonio Vivaldi Orchestra of Venice: With the goal of showcasing Mallorcan musicians, who unquestionably deserve to share the programme with international figures, this year’s Festival has invited the performer and instructor Andreu Riera, who will be accompanied by a splendid Baroque orchestra from Venice. Together they will bring to life Mozart in all his dimension and intensity. The work by Respighi (1879-1936), which the Orchestra will perform is a composition inspired by the pieces for lute from the Renaissance and Baroque.

Family Concert: Peter and the Wolf. Peter and the Wolf is a symphonic composition by Sergei Prokofiev (Op. 67) written in 1936. In this work, each character in the tale is represented by an instrument and a characteristic melody. At the beginning of the show, a narrator presents the characters and the instrument that personifies them. The Per Poc company perform with puppets, which illustrate the actions that are taking place in the story.
