Portrait of Spain

  • On Wednesday, May 8 at 6 pm. At Glavin Family Chapel, 17 Babson College Drive, Wellesley, MA 02482. Buy tickets.
  • On Wednesday, May 15 at 9 pm. At Harvard School of Public Health, 677 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115. Buy tickets.

The concertx are a unique collection of compositions by Danés, created during an unusual pilgrimage from Espeluy (Jaén) to Santiago. This journey was not only a physical trek but also a creative odyssey, as he traveled in a horse-drawn carriage, carrying a piano with him. This peculiar journey allowed him to offer concerts throughout what is known as “empty Spain,” bringing music to places where concerts of this nature rarely reach.

Each musical piece is preceded by a brief text describing the moment and place of its composition, providing emotional and geographical context that enriches the auditory experience.

Following the 45-minute concert on May 8, the Babson Graduate Family Business Club will host a reception for attendees to meet Danés, engage in discussions about the performance and its inspiration, and connect with fellow music enthusiasts.
