Marianne, la dona lliure
The Albareda Cultural Centre, in the Poble Sec neighborhood (Barcelona), will host on Saturday the 15th
in April at 7 p.m. a double tribute concert to Marianne Brull,
passionate about improvised music, cultural agitator and weekly concert programmer,
who died in Barcelona on March 8 at the age of 87.
Under the title of “Marianne, the free woman”, two of Brull’s favorite trios will perform: the
Liquid Trio, formed by Agustí Fernández (piano), Albert Cirera (saxes) and Ramon
Prats (drums), who dedicated the album “Marianne” to him in 2016. The Trio will also participate
Mars, integrated by Jordina Millà (piano), Núria Andorrà (percussion) and Sònia Sánchez
(dance). The concert is organized by the Club de Jazz podcast (www.patreon.com/clubdejazzradio).
Tickets can be reserved from Monday 27 March on the CC Albareda website.
It will cost €7 (€3 for Jazz Club subscribers), which must be paid in cash
the day of the concert. The proceeds will be used to cover the costs of the concert production
(rental of the piano, travel of artists, etc.). All musicians will perform in style
selfless as a tribute to Marianne Brull.
Marianne Brull (1935-2023)
Marianne Brull discovered free improvised music at a concert in the summer of 1998 and
since then she became a loyal fan and a tireless promoter. That
performance, organized by the pianist Agustí Fernández in tribute to the anarchist Buenaventura
Durruti, was an enlightenment for this woman, born in Wald, Switzerland, on April 5, 1935.
Before settling in Barcelona, Marianne Brull lived in Paris from the late 1950s, where she
get in touch with the Spanish exile. There he established a relationship with Pepe Martínez, one of the
founders of the publishing house Ruedo Ibérico, with whom they printed books and articles prohibited by the
Franco’s dictatorship, to then introduce them clandestinely into Spain. Brull’s house is gone
become the meeting point for the publishers, to which he dedicated his time
complete until its closure, after the end of the dictatorship.
