The Barcelona Festival of Song is focused in the Latin-American and Iberian Vocal Repertoire.
It means we study vocal repertoire written by composers frm Spain, Portugal and all Latin-American countries, meaning Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Mexico, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Paraguay, Guatemala, Panama, Puerto Rico.
We study repertoire in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan and indigenous languages of Latin-America.
There are literally thousands of composers from Latin-America and Spain that have written beautiful art songs for voice!.
Carlos Guastavino, Alberto Ginastera, Jaime Leon, Enric Granados, Isaac Albeniz, Ferran Obradors, Xavier Montsalvatge, Frederic Mompou, Eduard Toldrá, Ponce, Silvestre Revueltas, Salvador Moreno, Amadeo Roldán, García Caturla, Ernesto Lecuona, Rafael Aponte Ledée, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Camargo Guarnieri, Edmundo Vilani-Cortes, Alberto Nepomuceno, Ernani Braga, Manuel de Falla, Francisco Gurudi, Theodoro Valcárcel, Edgar Valcárcel, Agustín Fernández, José Lezcano, Ernest Borrás, Pedro Sarmiento, Irma Urteaga, Juan José Castro, Moisés Bertrán, Joaquín Rodrigo and Carlos Chavez are just few of the composers who have enriched this repertoire and that we study at the Barcelona Festival of Song.
One of the challenges of performers is to find Latin-American and Spanish Sheet Music. For this reason at the Barcelona Festival of Song we facilitate this process by publishing and making available the scores at our online store www.mundoarts.com. We also use the books written by the festival director Dr. Patricia Caicedo. This books are The Latin-American Art Song: A Critical Anthology and Interpretative Guide for Singers and the two volumes title The Colombian Art Song: Jaime León, Analysis and Compilation of his works for voice and piano published by Mundo Arts Publications.
