The Agrupació Sardanista Costa Brava organizes for the 24th consecutive year this concert dedicated to Ricard Viladesau, the prince of the tenor.

The concert format of this activity, the respect and passion of the public, and the musical quality contributed by two of the best duets in Catalonia, make this concert an unquestionable benchmark.

The concert consists of two parts: in the first part there is a repertoire of several sardanas performed alternately by the two couples. In the second part, on the other hand, a joint repertoire is performed which, at times, tend to be compositions that are not strictly Sardanist.

La Principal de La Bisbal is a cobla of Sardanes founded in 1888 by the members of the Cobla Vella of the town of La Bisbal d’Empordà In 1932 it was chosen as the official cobla of the Generalitat de Catalunya, a title that was restored in 1978 by president Josep Tarradellas. In 2014 he received the National Culture Award from the Generalitat de Catalunya.

The Els Montgrins couple was founded in 1884 in Torroella de Montgrí by Pere Rigau and Poch, called “Barretó”. Els Montgrins is the leading cobla of the cobla formations existing today and one of the most prestigious musical groups in Catalonia.
