This Portuguese maestro has worked closely with figures such as Josep Carreras, Ute Lemper and Wim Mertens as well as having one of the most impressive career records in the lyrical world of his country. Yet Rui Massena, who a few years back demonstrated to everybody his great boldness by creating the Expensive Soul Symphonic Experience (a classical orchestra... that plays hip-hop!), nevertheless makes his debut at the festival reconverted into a sensitive pianist close to Philip Glass and Michael Nyman, with the special support of a string quintet from the Liceu Conservatory. He is endorsed by two recent albums and the certainty of featuring among the most fascinating names of current contemporary music. If you are one of those who feels transported to heaven at every concert by Ludovico Einaudi, then don't think twice: Rui Massena is the artist for you. A magnificent opportunity to discover a new musical voice as part of the Barcelona International Jazz Festival.
