La Sagrada Familia was inspired by the most unconventional church in Europe. The Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia, which stands proudly in Barcelona was designed by Spain's most prominent modernist architect, Antoni Gaudi. When I first saw it I was moved by its originality and beauty, I was also astounded by the creator's incredible imagination. The piece is in two movements. Firstly, I have explored the foreboding nature of the building; the way it looks as though it were melting, twisting and almost lurching as it towers over you. Then in the second movement the music takes us on a winding journey down from the bell towers. Taking delight in the beautiful facades, shapes, glass and mosaics on the way.
