Barcelona, a unique place to learn and enjoy the Spanish Music
Barcelona has been and remains a fundamental center in the development of Spanish Music for piano. Due to this fact and given some of the teachers' profiles, BPA wants to put a special emphasis on the music of the composers from Spain. As an incentive to the study of this repertoire in all its richness, BPA will give the extraordinary opportunity to its students to access to the National Library of Catalonia where many of the manuscripts of the composer Granados are preserved as well as his own Piano Pleyel. In addition, BPA will give a Special Mention to the student selected by the faculty as the Best Interpreter of Spanish Music.
Masterclass by Albert Attenelle

To reinforce this commitment to Spanish Music, one of our concerts of BPA CONCERT SERIES, will be offered by the great pianist and specialist in Spanish Music Albert Attenelle (BPA Artistic Advisor and Professor). This concert will be devoted exclusively to work of one of our most world renowned Spanish composers.
