1PMI Events Promotes Palace Concert Cycle

In its pursuit to showcase Mallorca’s cultural venues, 1PMI is now promoting the Palace Concert cycle.

The village of Valldemossa is one of the island’s most visited places for its natural beauty. The village is home to a famous monastery that receives a larger number of tourists due to its architectural splendor and its cultural-musical heritage, since this was the place chosen by Chopin for his short but productive stay in Mallorca.

Against this historical backdrop, there is another heritage site – one of the island’s oldest buildings – deeply rooted in Mallorcan culture: the Palace of King Sancho.

The Palace of Valldemossa (1309-1399)
Under the orders of King James II of Mallorca, work started on this palace in the 14th century. It was to be one of the country seats of the Mallorcan dynasty. Once the dynasty ended, the palace fell into disuse. In 1399, King Martin I of Aragon allowed the palace to be converted into a monastery.

The idea behind the Palace Concert cycle is to offer the guests at an event something different: arriving at a palace, located in one of Mallorca’s most emblematic villages, and enjoying a special piano concert lasting one hour, followed by a glass of cava and canapés.

For those interested in offering their guest a special moment, Biel Duran, one of the most outstanding pianists on the local and international music scene, combining outstanding technique and virtuosity, is available to perform the "The Feel of the Classic," a concert of the same caliber as those performed at international renowned concert houses such as the Berlin Konzerthaus or the Royal Albert Hall (London).
