“Camprodon dedicates a small museum, situated at the tourist office, to its most illustrious son: the composer Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909). We can see the house where he was born at Plaza de la Vila 7, just before the Caixa building.
The exhibition recreates the environment of the time and shows numerous objects and personal documents such as sheet music and first editions.
Created from the donations made by his descendents, the museum seeks above all to recreate the environment that formed part of the artist’s life. We find a wide range of personal documents, such as his birth certificate and letters to friends such as Pau Casals, Enric Granados and Gabriel.
Original musical scores, like Suite Iberia, books from his personal library, in addition to a good amount of paintings and photographs can also be seen.
Some personal items are also displayed: the marital bedroom of the composer and his wife, his sister Clementina’s vertical piano, the first one he played at the age of two or three, and a magnificent grand piano that Francis Money-Cutts gifted to his daughter Enriqueta when she got married.
