Festival Chopin de Valldemossa
Started in 1930, the Festival Chopin takes place in the chapel at the Cartoixa de Valldemossa on the north side of the island of Mallorca. The program primarily consists of grand piano solos with works by Chopin, but there's music by other composers too, performed by renowned musicians and up-and-coming talents. As well as concerts, which fall on four Sundays in August, there are exhibitions and other events related to the festival that reflect the philosophy of the age of Chopin, one in which people battled for both individual and collective freedom.
