Sculptures of muses playing a lute and a flageolet and a drum, by Eusebi Arnau, with mosaics by Lluis Bru, around the back wall of the stage in the Concert Hall, at the Palau de la Musica Catalana, built 1905-8 and designed by the Catalan Modernist architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner, 1850-1923, in Casc Antic, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The hall seats 2015 people, has a Walcker pipe organ and stepped stage and is illuminated entirely during the day by windows and a huge stained glass drip-shaped skylight by Rigalt Granell & Cia. The hall was built for the Orfeo Catala choral society in Catalan Modernist style, with art nouveau inspired organic forms and much attention to decorative detail. The concert hall was listed in 1997 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Picture by Manuel Cohen
