Barcelona improvisers share the stage with musicians from three continents in a concert that connects interpreters of different origins and generations. An exercise in transmitting musical wisdom, with the public as an accomplice.
The improvised music scene in the city has grown exponentially in recent years. There is a transmission of knowledge, of musical wisdom, that the Augusta project of Agustí Fernández Ensemble now brings to the Grec Festival of Barcelona. The name refers to a street known to the city, to a Roman road that connected the main cities of the empire with Barcelona .
Whoever comes to the Fundació Joan Miró will find a number of Barcelona performers interacting and exchanging knowledge and techniques with guest musicians who have arrived from the most diverse countries in a festive gathering in Montjuïc venue prior to the evening concert. You will also see how emerging talents learn from the renowned and how the latter enjoy the freshness and new ways of making from the newcomers.
Via Augusta includes a post-concert talk surrounding improvised music. Agustí Fernández is one of the world's references to improvised music.
