The 3rd edition of the “Music and the World – Atlantic Sound Encounters” concert cycle is coming to Entroncamento and, in particular, to the National Railway Museum. It brings together composers from successive generations who, by “connecting the dots”, reveal a distinct lineage. It all begins in 1886, when Vincent d’Indy set out to recreate the old Baroque court dances. As early as 1895, Francisco de Lacerda went to the Schola Cantorum to study with the French musician. When he returned to Portugal at the end of the 1920s, he dedicated himself to researching traditional Portuguese music. He then influenced Fernando Lopes Graça, in turn Sérgio Azevedo’s teacher, who appears here transcribing Lacerda’s symphonic poems. There is also a preview of the work that won the 2nd Edition of the Francisco de Lacerda Composition Prize. With an ear to the past. With impressions of the present. These are the Atlantic Sound Encounters.
