The Joan Miro Foundation museum

joan miro

Today’s Barcelona Hostal Residencia Australia recommendation is to visit The Joan Miro Foundation museum, enjoy it !

The Joan Miró Foundation opened to the public on 10 June 1975. It had its origins in Miró’s first large exhibition in Barcelona, in 1968, at the Antic Hospital de la Santa Creu. Several figures from the world of the arts saw the opportunity to have a space in Barcelona dedicated to the artist’s work. However, in accordance with his wishes, the new institution was also to promote and publicise the work of contemporary artists in all its aspects.At a time when artistic and cultural life was certainly minimal, the Foundation brought a refreshing vitality, together with a new, more dynamic concept of an art museum in which Miró’s art was shown alongside a wide variety of creative works by other artists – a fact that is reflected in the Foundation’s full name of Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art.

Sagrada Familia by Antoni Gaudí architect

Sagrada Familia

Today´s Barcelona Hostal Residencia Australia recommendation is to visit the great Sagrada Family temple

The architecture of Barcelona has been most influenced by the work of Antoni Gaudí. One of Gaudí’s greatest creations is the Sagrada Familia a giant Temple that has been under construction since 1882. This building is the number one most visited attraction in Barcelona catering to over 2,000,000 visitors per year.
Once you enter the Sagrada Familia you can visit the museum which is housed in the building. The museum details the history and development of the Sagrada Familia and also gives fascinating insights into Gaudí himself.
This museum offers a truly fascinating visit because you will see photos of the development of the Sagrada Familia from the present day back to its early beginnings. There’s also a model of the Sagrada Familia depicting what it will look like once it’s completed (predicted to happen in the next 30 years).
Due to the very high numbers of people that visit the Sagrada Familia this museum is one of the most visited and popular museums in Barcelona.

Museu Picaso of Barcelona

museu picasso of Barcelona

Today´s Barcelona Hostal Residencia Australia recommendation is:

The Museum is very rich in regard to work from the training periods in the life of the artist; we could say that it is practically exhaustive up to the Blue Period, of which the Museum has a priceless group of works. Furthermore, the Museum houses an important representation of works from 1917, and the series, Las Meninas (1957) and a very large Picasso’s prints collection, now displayed in the rooms opened in the beginning of 2008.

The Museum has undergone successive renovations and expansions, and it’s currently starting to develop new programmes, activities and services to become a reference place, envisaged to spreading knowledge and to fostering the visitor’s participation and critical views. The Museum wishes to be a dialogue space, exploring new approaches to Picasso’s work and influence and offering new perspectives on the Museum Collection.

The history of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona is the chronicle of the artist’s firm wish to leave the imprint of his art in our city. Thanks to the wishes of Picasso and his friend and personal secretary, Jaume Sabartés, Barcelona now has the youthful work of one of the twentieth century’s most significant artists.

Melbourne Spanish Guitar. La Guajira Flamenca

Thomas Lorenzo expands on flamenco styles. Music appreciation is an added value to all his event planning here in Melbourne.

His love for music defines his need in sharing his knowledge with fellow friends and musicians.

Flamenco guitar books incorporate complicated descriptions of the patterns we use in it´s styles. I believe the explanation can be simplified as music is only a simple reflection of human emotions.

Flamenco as all styles of music has a specific pulse, a heartbeat that we communicate on and with. La guajira is really a ¾ rhythm and a waltz style of music.

Barcelona Tapas

Have a good moments in *Moments*!

Today’s Barcelona Hostal Residencia Australia recommendation,is:

In the brand new and beautiful Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the table on
everyone’s lips is with no doubt: Moments.

The Chef Carme Ruscalleda and her son Raül Balam are revisiting Catalan
recipes and even inventing the first anti-aging menu of Barcelona..

On the Catalan side of the menu you will discover totally renewed classical
dishes like Arroz caldoso de gamba con picada de pescador (rice dish with
broth) – Fricandó (veal stew) and suquet (fish stew) – Shrimp Tartar-
Seabass with fig chutney and hibiscus salt – Veal Cheeks with turnip
vegetable ravioli and red fruits..

A delight and lot of imagination!!

But even more visionary and trendy: a “anti-aging” menuwhere the food
chosen by Carme Ruscalleda and Dr. Manuel Sanchez – head of the Anti-aging
Unit Clinic Planas- , specialist in the anti-age treatments, conceal only
the most miraculous properties to preserve an “iron constitution”

In this menu, mini pizza pies with artichokes and the Joselito ham, or
macaroni with buckwheat accompanied by scallops and vegetables… a great
idea!

La Farruca. Flamenco by Spanish Guitarist Tomas Lorenzo

La Farruca. Flamenco by Spanish Guitarist Tomas Lorenzo

Farruca is a form and style of flamenco music. It may be performed with lyrics ( vocals) and as most flamenco styles in can also be danced to. It is played in 4/4, interpreted at a relative slow tempo and accompanied by melody and harmony defining a minor key.

In the following examples you will see how slow tempos are appropriate for “accelerandos” as a possible method of achieving intensity in the dance and impact on the audience.

It is very common in flamenco to relate styles to certain keys. All styles in theory can be played in all keys . Those keys that allow open strings on the guitar broaden the possibility of expression, rhythm and accompaniment of the spanish guitarist.  Please follow the link above to read more on the subject

Saturday, 4.20pm, the lunchtime rush has died down. Most local customers
are taking coffee and *licores*. “Paella for Pablo,” the call goes out.
And, at 4.23pm Pablo has his paella, done the way he wants it – with a
whole *butifarra*(sausage) on the side. This very popular, well-organised,
local standby, its pavement tables set to catch the best of the afternoon
sunshine, is always busy. For good reason – they serve a reliably good
range of tapas including *pescadito frito *(whitebait) *gambas rebozadas*(prawns in a light batter)

mussels, sausages and the whole kaboodle.

Vegetarians will be pleased to note that they serve a wonderful vegetable paella with

goat’s cheese. The terrace is a good spot in the evening.

Guitar teachers should inspire your uniqueness.

When I play the guitar I like to feel as if I was writing a song?

At Tom ‘s music studio I teach my guitar students how to create memorable melodies, use counterpoint effectively in song construction, develop melodic ideas, incorporate melodies across chords into different song sections. Read more at   Melbourne Spanish Electric Guitar Teacher

Maitea tapas bar by Barcelona Hostal Residencia Australia:

You’ll find dozens of Basque bars across the city. For quality, variety and
overall value, this place is probably the best. Generous portions of meats,
cheeses, fish, seafood and tapenades piled on to chunks of bread speared
with a toothpick – hence the name *pintxo*, which means spike. Order a
drink and grab a plate from the bar. The young, friendly staff will explain
how things work. Every now and then one of the staff will offer you a hot *
pintxo* – perhaps a date wrapped in bacon. Enjoy. Ensure you keep all the
toothpicks as these will be counted at the end of your session. Each *
pintxo *costs €1.55. Good selection of wines, including txakoli, ciders and

COVA FUMADA(My best local seafood restaurant in Barcelona)

Dear friends, our today’s Barcelona Hostal Residencia Australia recommendation is “Cova Fumada”
nice place to enjoy seafood.

This old hole in the wall serves simple dishes bursting with flavor. It’s
a small, busy, friendly place – you may have to prop yourselves at the bar
before sharing a table with a couple of locals, like dining in a large
family kitchen. They’re famed for their *bombas *(meat-filled mashed-potato
balls rolled in breadcrumbs) served with a choice of three sauces, graded
by spiciness – *salsa del diablo *being the hottest. And then there’s the
bread – try the *pa amb all i oli *– huge slices of grilled bread slathered
with fresh, homemade garlic mayonnaise. Simple, but it works. Try the
marinaded sardines, the fried artichokes, squid and the *bacallà *(salt
cod) with a tomato salad.

SPECIALISED GUITAR TUITION : TOMAS LORENZO

Tomas Lorenzo offers performance based individual and group guitar tuition for secondary education. Students learn in a group setting that is also an ensemble that performs.

A guitar world music ensemble is created for each participating school allowing guitar students of all levels to perform a selection of compositions that reflect the diversity of contemporary Australian culture.

Group tuition with performance orientation is a low cost effective manner of learning music creating a stimulating educational environment that quickly allows the students to understand and use the primary elements of music which are melody, harmony and rhythm.

Once the student is exposed to the joy of expression through music, once he or she feels good about what they are doing , once the student is given a task he or she can accomplish and play in a group setting , they will want to and need to know more.

My goal is to establish the individual tasks needed to achieve the enjoyment but with a clear defined educational goal of:

  1. Development of left and right hand guitar techniques
  2. Understanding of major scales, modes, and time signatures
  3. Bilateral Integration: Development of rhythmic coordination between the left and right sides of the body
  4. Melodic and harmonic recognition: both aural and applied to the instrument
  5. Songwriting analysis
  6. Style analysis
  7. Development of short term and long term memory capability
  8. To develop understanding of music in a group situation where team work is required to achieve the final performance.

Levels: All levels

Barcelona tapas

Some typical tapas that you might expect to see in Barcelona

Around our Hostal Residencia Australia you can enjoy good and typical Spanish food , the “Tapa’s”, as a example we can guide you for you best choosing.

Some typical tapas that you might expect to see in Barcelona:

Pan con Tomate: The Queen of catalan tapa. White bread rubbed with tomato and drizzed in oil and salt. A perfect accompaniment to the rest of your tapas.

Patatas Bravas: The chips or french fries of Spain. Small deep fried cubes of potato served with two sauces – alioli (a garlicky mayonnaise) and a spicy tomato sauce.

Chipirones: I have never seen these deep fried baby squids outside of Spain.

Anchoas: These anchovies are not normally the very salty kind that you may be used to. They are served in vinegar with parsley and garlic.

Russian Salad: Not the healthiest of salads. This is a heavy dish made up of potatoes, peas, hard boiled eggs and potential other vegetables, covered in mayonnaise.

Croquetas: Croquetas are often made with ham, fish, chicken or spinach. They are made from a sort of béchamel sauce, breaded and deep fried.
