A Guide to the Art and Music of The Balearic Islands


 
Travel & Tourism
The islands located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of mainland Spain are known as The Balearic Islands, all of which (Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza) have a gained a favourable reputation among many a British holidaymaker.

What Typifies Each of the Balearic Islands?

All three destinations have a similar climate and there is no doubt that they can each lay claim to some wonderful beaches, but each one is individual and holds its own unique attraction. Ibiza is best known for its all night party scene, while Majorca is famed for its package holiday deals and Menorca is regarded as the quiet, hidden gem that still holds steadfastly to its Menorcan customs. There is also a significant contrast in terms of geography, history, and culture.

This article focus on the music and art scene on the islands and takes a closer look at whether this element of culture has common features across the three islands or whether each one has something of its own to offer.

Art in the Balearics

No one can argue with the fact that The Balearics provide plenty of material for artists looking for inspiration. The Surrealism Movement that came to fruition in the 1920s encouraged many a budding artist to come to the island of Ibiza, in particular, where the social scene and community life was very alternative and creativity focussed. Today there are several exhibitions held on Majorca, some organised by the March Foundation, and others put on by the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation. Both show works of art by world famous artists such as Dalí, Miro and Picasso.

Menorca also holds its own on the art stage. Its capital, Mahón, is home to the Scientific, Artistic and Literary Centre, which holds exhibitions that are aimed at promoting the work of local artists. Some of these include Pasqual Calbó i Caldés, Hernández Monjo and Joan Font i Vidal.

Music in the Balearics

Music and Ibiza go hand in hand, although the kind of music associated with this island may not be the kind of music that suits a very wide spectrum of visitors. Reputed as the mecca of dance music, Ibiza is known the world over for its classy nightclubs, all night parties and cabaret shows.

Majorca is also regarded as a top holiday destination for lovers of the dance scene. Slightly cheaper nightlife, particularly in the resort of Magaluf, draws many a school leaver to come and let their hair down before university.

Menorca, the more traditional of the three islands and the one that still strongly honours its Menorcan customs, has consequently evaded the busy glitzy and glamorous nightlife scene and is once again more laid back in its approach to music. The Summer Music Festival in Ciutadella is held in August every year and puts on a number of classical concerts, each one held in a different venue. Venues are chosen for their ambiance and their appropriateness for the occasion and include buildings such as the cloister of the Church of El Socorro. If you are keen to sit and soak up the incredible music of Menorca, this festival is one to look out for, although there are many others too.

Menorcan customs compared with the customs on the other islands are possibly still the most evident. You only have to visit one of the many music festivals to see that, and while Ibiza and Majorca have a huge music scene, Menorca makes a unique contribution of its own.
