The Muses at Palau de la Musica Catalana by Montaner in Barcelona

9 Muses at the stage in Palau de la Musica Catalana, Barcelona

In spite of the awful framing and the rest of technical errors, due to the secrecy of the snapshot,(remember it is generally not allowed to take pictures inside Palau de la Música Catalana or Catalan Music Concert Hall) you are able to see just there on the left, at the end of the stage...

Six of the Nine Muses by Eusebi Arnau coming from the wall like silent ghosts.

There were three ushers and a lady carrying a staff badge, personally reminding me not to shoot, although some people in the middle of the audience managed to take out their compact cameras and I could see some flashes fired. Nevertheless, whenever I raised my reflex someone came and told me off.

Anyway, this stolen glimpse at one of the altars of Catalan modernisme made breaking the rules inevitable and almost justifiable.


  1. Carlos, have a great New Year’s eve and all the best in 2007.

  2. Thanks for stealing the peep for us. The white sculpture has an angry look.

    Have a very happy 2007!

    I don't blame you for your scandalous behavior one little bit. And thank you for risking all for us. This hall is incredibly beautiful. It's a very nice photo, and with the commentary, it's even better.

  4. I went to see a concert there this month and the same thing happened to me. I also took a few shots, though not as sharp as yours I think. I posted them in my blog if you want to check them

    Happy new year!
