Recital Definition

The term recital refers to musical events that take place in more or less large spaces and that generally summon a significant number of attendees who meet in the same place and at the same time to listen to a certain type of music.

Recitals are a fairly recent phenomenon even though musical concerts have been around for a long time. However, recitals are recurrent today when it comes to rock or pop music and are generally highly representative of the younger sectors of a society.

One of the most important characteristics of a recital is that it generates a special symbiosis and connection between those who emit the message (musicians) and those who receive it (the public). Today, musical recitals can mobilize huge numbers of people who, depending on the artist and the place where the show is held, can easily exceed thousands. This cultural and social expression then becomes one of the most important and popular elements of society since it not only represents the cultural interest in a style of music but also the union and connection that is generated between those who attend and who share certain resemblances to each other.

The recital takes place in a more or less defined space that, in general, is called a stage. The stage will always be the space in which the emitter is located, despite the fact that such a place is nothing more than a canvas thrown on the floor and that it has nothing to do with the usual scenarios seen everywhere. On the other side of the place (facing the musicians), is the public that, in numerous types of recitals, tends to crowd in order to be closer to the idols to be known.
