The Pablo Casals Festival

Event in Prades

The Pablo Casals Festival - Event in Prades

Created in 1950 by the famous Catalan cellist and conductor, the Pablo Casals Festival welcomes world-renowned soloists to Prades in Pyrénées-Orientales. Every year, between the end of July and mid-August, over 10,000 music-lovers and inquiring minds come to listen to the many concerts held in Pyrénées-Orientales' most beautiful religious buildings, like the Abbey of Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa, Serrabone Priory, Marcevol Priory or the Saint-Martin-du-Canigou.

There are also concerts in unusual venues, like the Canalettes caves at Corneilla-de-Conflent. The musicians perform great masterpieces of chamber music, from Bach to Mozart through Schubert, but also less well-known classic or contemporary repertoires.

The Pablo Casals festival also offers a composition competition open to students from all schools, conferences, meetings with artists and film screenings.
