In the 1940s, Fernando Lopes Graça began composing “Heroic, Dramatic, Bucolic and Other Songs”. In author’s editions, he published eight notebooks, six of them even before April 25, under ban by the political regime. In Liberdade, the “message” became more explicit, as exemplified by the recreation of the melody of Grândola, Vila Morena. Conductor Luís Cardoso transcribed some of these songs for orchestra. For her part, Anne Victorino d’Almeida also recovered melodies by Zeca Afonso to celebrate the Revolution, with Histórias de Abril. And because it’s all about the spirit of change, Beethoven’s famous Fifth Symphony comes to mind.
