When The Beatles met Bach
Nowadays with the frantic lifestyle we have is very hard to focus the attention in the knowledge of music and of the musicians who have wrote whole pages of the history of the western European music.
This pedagogic concert tries to be a view without prejudices to the ways of understanding music in two very different historical concerts.
We will see the contradictions of a musical genius as Johan Sebastian Bach was, whose work has meant an essential heritage for legions of composers, and also the inner face of the Pop music group considered as the most famous of the XX century: The Beatles
This new pedagogic proposal tries to be a reflection about the aims of composers; how they wonder about the time they had to live. It is a way of teaching the children to not accept the “established things” as rule, to realize that composers of different historical times can have much more in common than we may think.
