BARCELÓ

Considered one of the finest musicians of Andorra, Barceló is a pianist, composer and pedagogue. He directs the musical schools of the Valls del Nord in Andorra. He is also the vice-president of ASMA (Andorra association of musicians).

Barceló has collaborated as a composer, arrenger, musical director or piano performed with many international artists and groups, from classical music to jazz, flamenco or Latin music; some of these are Lucrecia, Miguel Ángel Céspedes, Ángela Carrasco, Mónica Green, Parrita, Los Manolos, Cotton Club Big Band, Andorra Big Band or the National Classic Orchestra of Andorra (ONCA).

He undertook studies in the Conservatori Superior Municipal de Música of Barcelona, and later specialized in Jazz in the Superior School of Music of Catalonia (ESMUC). His musical career started when he was only six years old, along with his father, who had him perform the piano in ships during summer cruises.

At the age of twenty he founded and directed the Cotton Blue Big Band, combining pedagogical duty with concert performances.

After many record collaborations, he edited his first record in 2010, Latin Stride Piano, where he presented classical themes, jazz standards and some of his own compositions; the record included a very Latin version of the Stride piano technique.

In 2012 Barceló issued his second record, La Grandalla (Tocant el cel), a compendium of memories offering eleven themes, which evoked eleven experiences lived by the composer.

Thus, Barceló used his music to share the feelings obtained with every experience.

In 2014 he presented his third record, Esperança, glowing with feelings and sensations, which consolidates him and his prestigious career.
