"Fundació Victoria dels Àngels"

The Foundation of Victoria de los Angeles is opened to Big Art in capital letters, as the same Victoria de los Angeles was sensitive not only to music but also to literature and painting. A sensitivity she knew to share and communicate, always with generosity, and through the voice, which is possibly the best instrument of all, and the most fragile.

With this instrument, with her sensitivity and her control of the technical skills, Victoria de los Angeles made a sort of art that transcended an only musical form as the opera is. The lied, the concert and the oratory were demonstrations where the soprano from Barcelona felt comfortable, yet in her beginning and from her debut in the Palau de la Música Catalana, in May 1944. After a brilliant international career around the five continents (always welcomed and loved by the public from the most prestigious theatres and concert halls from all over the world), with prudence and after a recital, the small figure of Victoria slipped away in the backstage of the Big Hall of the National Theatre of Catalonia, on December 28th, 1997. On January 15th 2005 she left us forever, after giving us the present of her precious legacy: her singing.
