Music moves us and it plays a crucial role in building our social lives. The Museu de la Música de Barcelona will take you on a journey across the world of music, history and culture through its musical instruments, where you will be able to listen to and interact with sound. Each instrument in this exceptional collection preserves the human imprint that has been stamped onto the object. The instruments are also evidence of the people who built, handled and played them making one of the most intimate social activities. Simultaneously, music is the most intense and collective experience that humans share. I look forward to seeing you at L'Auditori in Barcelona.
