    Edvard Grieg Peer Gynt, Suite n.º 2
    Jean Sibelius Sinfonia n.º 6

    Jean Sibelius En Saga
    Edvard Grieg Peer Gynt, Suite n.º 1

    Who doesn't recognize the delicate flute that makes Peer Gynt's “Morning” emerge? Or “The Hall of the Mountain King”, evoking the trolls of popular Nordic imagination, featured so many times in film and television? Both are part of the incidental music that the Norwegian Edvard Grieg wrote for the Ibsen’s play, whose most memorable moments make up the two suites featured in this program. Sibelius is also featured in this program. The tranquil Symphony No. 6, featuring a glimpse of appreciation for the purification of Palestrina's style, was able to remind its author of “the aroma of the first snow”. The Finnish composer's orchestral art is further illustrated by one of his most famous symphonic poems, En Saga, which he considered to be his most profound work, encompassing his whole youth.

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Casa da Música implemented the following safety measures:
    • Mandatory use of mask inside the building of Casa da Música;
    • Non-invasive temperature measurement (except concerts on Sala Suggia or Sala 2);
    • Hand hygiene;
    • Compliance with social distancing rules.

    Failure to comply with these measures prevents access to concerts, educational activities and guided tours held at Casa da Música.

    You will find visible signs on the different routes and spaces of Casa da Música, as well as information regarding the rules of access, circulation and permanence (always keeping the social distance of 2 meters), as well as the maximum capacity of the different spaces.
    All customer service points are equipped with acrylic barriers for protection and demarcation on the floor of the mandatory distance. All spaces are equipped with hand sanitizer dispensers that visitors should use before the start of activities, the purchase of tickets and the guided tours, among others.
    We reinforced our hygiene plan, particularly in the disinfection of surfaces and objects (sanitary facilities, counters, handrails, door handles, switches), and in the ventilation of spaces with greater circulation of people.
