As early as 1945, Fernando Lopes Graça himself invited adaptations of his Canções Heroicas to be sung solo or played by any instrumental ensemble. The aim was to make them available to everyone. Conductor Luís Cardoso accepted the challenge and adapted some of these songs for orchestra. In a different way, Anne Victorino d’Almeida also recovered Zeca Afonso’s melodies and brought them to more people with Histórias de Abril. This is how we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Carnation Revolution, in a program that also includes Arnold Schoenberg’s “revolutionary” Chamber Symphonies.
