Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra

Founded in 1992, the Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra is a reference in the Portuguese music scene.

Composed of 37 musicians, in a “classical” instrumental configuration, their basic formation is regularly modulated and extended, allowing it to approach nearly the entire orchestral repertoire, from the late 17th century to contemporary times.

Martin's Instrumental Passion

A par de Arthur Honegger, Frank Martin é um dos compositores suíços que alcançaram maior prestígio no século passado. Entre as obras que lhe são mais conhecidas, contam-se a «Pequena Sinfonia Concertante» e a oratória «Golgotha». Filho de um pastor calvinista, a fé trespassou frequentemente a sua produção artística. Faleceu com oitenta e quatro anos de idade, em 1974. No ano anterior tinha estreado duas obras de grande fôlego e que traduzem essa influência – o «Requiem» e o «Políptico».

Poulenc's Youth

Most of the music Francis Poulenc wrote for orchestra was for ballets and plays, in addition to choral scores with orchestra, concertos and various arrangements. The "Sinfonietta" (1947) is his only symphonic work. Still, it is four movements that sound more like scenic music than a Symphony. He called it "Sinfonietta," short for Symphony.

The Muse and the Poet

"The Muse and the Poet" by Camille Saint-Saëns hovers in a nostalgic atmosphere, over melodies that suggest discourse (or dialogue) in the first person, as if accompanied by words that are hidden among the sounds. In a way, it is a symphonic poem, with a single movement evocative of extramusical references. Musically, it counterpoints the orchestral ensemble and two soloist parts, the violin and cello.

Petrushka

Petrushka is the ballet that interposed between the resounding debut of the young Igor Stravinsky in Paris (with The Bird of Fire) and the infamous Spring Rise scandal.
