Atlantic Sound Encounters

Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal
Sat 30 Sep 19:00
Entrada Livre

This program 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, who in turn taught Sérgio Azevedo, who appears here transcribing Lacerda’s symphonic poems. He is also the winner of the 2nd Edition of the Francisco de Lacerda Composition Prize from the Millennium BCP Foundation. The winner was Luís Neto da Costa, with his creation Ecos de Trovas, inspired by Lacerda’s 7 Trovas. With ears in the past. With impressions of the present. These are the Atlantic Sound Encounters.
