The 61st Pollensa Festival will feature seven concerts in August.
Artistic advisor Pere Bonet says that this year’s festival has been inspired by the two instruments which have been the pillars on which this “musical institution” has been built - the piano and the violin.
Tributes will be paid to these instruments through a programme “which will offer the best music with the best performers and with the highest quality - something that has always characterised the festival”.
