Monthly Archives: December 2011


Barcelona, 24 December 2011. To celebrate Christmas we would like to invite you to enjoy a show for the whole family!
When you buy a ticket to the Museu del Modernisme Català on 27th and 28th December you will receive an invitation to THE MAGIC FLUTE, showing at 5.30pm on those dates.

The opening night of The Magic Flute was a great success among the public for its composer W.A. Mozart. For this reason, to reach out to a greater audience, the most representative moments were transcribed into chamber music for two violins, a great short performance offered by AMBÀNIMA. This performance gives us the opportunity to get to know the world of music and opera in a fun and enjoyable way.

Tickets: Adults (€10) Children (€5)
Duration: 45 minutes
Bookings must be made in advance on 932 722 896 or
Limited places.




As Christmas has come, around sixty members enjoyed a guided tour and sampled a glass of Reina Maria Cristina de Codorniu, an exceptional cava from 2008 that pays homage to Queen Regent Maria Cristina, who granted the title of “Royal Warrant of appointment” in 1897.

The places on this exclusive guided tour for members of Club Tr3sc were all taken in just a few minutes. Come and visit the museum as the permanent collection will be renewed in just 3 months’ time!

Don’t miss the last session of 2011!

This Saturday at 7pm Ekaterina Záytseva will offer us the last session for 2011, coinciding with the start of the Christmas season.

Born in Geneva and settled in Barcelona, Ekaterina Záytseva is considered on the most talented guitarist of her generation. She started studying piano at the tender age of 5 years old and guitar at 11 years old with M. Alexandrova. At the end of this period, she obtained the Prize of Honour and later the Intermediate level Prize of Honour from the P. I. Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow where she studied under N. Ivanova-Kramskáya.
Between 2002 and 2006 she continued her studies at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (Barcelona), at first as a student of Àlex Garrobé, and, later, of Laura Young. At this centre she also studied piano with Vladislav Bronevetsky and chamber music with Feliu Gasull. She later completed her academic training with Zoran Dukic at The Hague Conservatory obtaining the title of Master of Music. She has received advice from great guitarists such as David Russell, Aniello Desiderio, Hubert Kappel, Carlo Marchione, Hopkinson Smith and Anastasia Bardina.
She has taken part in the most important international guitar festivals, winning awards in several competitions such as the “Belgorod International Competition”, “Comarca el Condado” in Jaén -receiving the award for “Best performer of Andalusian music””-, as well as in the “Ciutat de Torrent” competition (Valencia) and the “Arjau” competition in Barcelona, for her performance of music by Catalan composers.
She has performed in prestigious concert halls such as the Moscow Conservatory, the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic, the Castelló Auditorium and the Radio Warsaw Hall. Critics have said: “Záytseva surprises one with a powerful stylistic versatility and wide technical command of the guitar”, and “great technical skill and excellent handling of the harmonic colours”.
