About

Have you ever stopped to think that some exceptional music has been composed and performed in the monuments and historic sites we all visit?

From America to Europe, from New York to Vienna, Paris, Berlin, Venice and Granada, for over a 1000 years, the greatest composers have devoted their most beautiful masterpieces to these monuments. These memory sites o er in nite musical riches.

[Resonances] draws on Harmonia Mundi’s prestigious back catalogue to restore this monumental heritage: 8 volumes of 2 albums, complete with illustrated booklets, maps and chronologies, accompanied by a comprehensive website.

From the Arab conquest to the 20th century, Granada was at once the centre and the object of intense musical creation, embodied in the emblematic Alhambra Palace and its gardens, the subjects of musical fantasies of all kinds. It was a fascination shared by those who actually visited those places (Isaac Albéniz, Joaquín Turina) and those who went there in their imagination (Manuel de Falla, Claude Debussy). From the Puerta del Vino to the Albaicín by way of the Generalife, this selection invites you to discover a thousand years of musical magic.
