Coliseum
  • Year of establishment: 1923
    History:

    Teatre que va ser inaugurat el 1923 a la Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes a partir del projecte de l’arquitecte Francesc de Paula Nebot com un cinema de grans proporcions. També va programar activitats musicals, entre les que destaquen les temporades operístiques que va impulsar el Club de Futbol Júnior. A l’any 1925 l'Orquestra Pau Casals va celebrar-hi alguns concerts. S'hi van estrenar obres com ara l'opereta Black, el payaso (1942) de Pablo Sorozábal, i els ballets Manfred de Xavier Montsalvatge i El retrat de Dorian Gray (1945) de Joan Manén. Des de 1955, amb la compra per part de Pere Balañà, va programar grans estrenes de cinema, però amb concerts excepcionals, com els que va oferir Joan Manuel Serrat, i representacions de teatre com Yerma amb Núria Espert. El 2007 es va reconvertir en teatre.

He studied at the Escola Municipal de Música of Barcelona with Enric Morera, Jaume Pahissa and Lluís Millet. The performances of the Orquestra Pau Casals made a great impact on him, particularly after seeing composers such as Sergei Prokofiev, Béla Bartók or Igor Stravinsky. Although he won a few prizes before the Civil War, it was Cinco canciones negras (1945) that made him internationally renowned. This work, together with others like Quarteto Indiano (1952), constituted the first period of his work, also known as “antillista”. Later, he developed more personal paths with works such as the Desintegració morfològica de la Chacona de Bach (1962) where he used avant-garde languages with a subjective perspective. His compositions became the most frequently performed Catalan music. He also did an important task as music critic for El mañana (1934-1937), Destino (1939-1975) and La Vanguardia (from 1962).
