Manuel de Falla Auditorium of Granada, where City of Granada Orchestra finds its seat and residence, was inaugurated on June 10, 1978 by the Spanish National Orchestra conducted by Antoni Ros-Marbà.
The Auditorium is located on the southern face of El Cerro de los Mártires, near the monumental area which involves Torres Bermejas, Rodríguez Acosta Foundation, Palace Hotel or Manuel de Falla House Museum. The modern Manuel de Falla Auditorium, which is also the seat of the Cultural Centre and Music Archive Manuel de Falla, is one of the major works of the architect José María García de Paredes.
The building was finished in 1978. It is built on the seat formerly occupied by the cármenes (typical Granadian villas) of Matamoros, Santa Rita and Gran Capitán. The Auditorium implies an original concept of volumes that, being respectful with the environment, allow classy and functional acoustic-friendly inner spaces.
The concert hall consist of two main stalls brought face to face which converge on the stage. The ensemble is beautifully decorated by several typical Granadian lanterns, whose eclectic design has become referential as the image of the concert hall. Manuel de Falla Auditorium becomes itself a carefully tuned instrument, to which the visitor can enter through a quiet and intimate garden, inspired by the typical Granadian “cármenes”.
