The cello, as we know it today, is an instrument that has existed for over five hundred years. It has, therefore, many stories to tell us, namely through the immense and valuable repertoire that has been entrusted to it over time. Therefore, it is worth the Metropolitana dedicating this last week of April to it by promoting masterclasses, a competition, and three days of concerts at Teatro São Luiz for us to hear everything it has to tell us. Passing through works by Haydn, Schostakovich and several other reference composers, this is also the occasion to remember one of the most remarkable cellists of our musical panorama in the last decades. Paulo Gaio Lima left us almost two years ago. An extraordinary performer, he was also listened to as a pedagogue by the vast majority of today’s Portuguese cellists. This is the first edition of an initiative that evokes his name and that is intended to be held biannually.
