Carlos A. Augusto

ECOS Coimbra (2018), for six percussionists and loudspeakers is a new work by Carlos Alberto Augusto (composer published by the MIC.PT), written for the 5th edition of the Sons da Cidade (Sounds of the City) project. Its world premiere will take place on June 23 at the Praça do Comércio in Coimbra. It will be performed by the Simantra - Percussion Group and Carlos A. Augusto (sound projection). The initiative Sons da Cidade is a celebration of the inclusion of the University of Coimbra - Alta e Sofia in the UNESCO World Heritage List, “under the sign” of artistic reflection and intervention. Co-organized by the Jazz ao Centro Club, the Coimbra Municipality and the University of Coimbra, this programme invites the public to wander around the City, and proposes its (re)discovery and new perception on the crossing of various heritages.
Pedro Amaral

The work Deux portraits imaginaires (2013) for chamber orchestra by Pedro Amaral is included in the concert of the Madeira Classical Orchestra, conducted by this composer published by the MIC.PT. The event will take place on June 16 at the Legislative Assembly of Madeira (Funchal), and its programme also includes works by Emmanuel Séjourné (Concerto for Marimba, Vibraphone and Orchestra; 2012) and Ludwig van Beethoven (Symphony no. 7; 1812). As Pedro Amaral reveals in the programme notes to his work: "Deux portraits imaginaires is a «programmatic» piece. Its base is constituted of a dialogue between two characters: Faust, in the reading left to us by Fernando Pessoa, and Maria, not Goethe’s Margaret, who represents the impossible love. This purely instrumental music aims at painting a portrait of the characters - their profound personality and psychological state in the moment of the dialogue between them…
Miguel Azguime

On June 9 at the Liceu Passos Manuel the project Dizer... As Palavras dos Poetas (To speak… the Poets’ Words), resulting from Miguel Azguime’s collaboration with the Companhia Maior, will be the opening performance at the European Literature Night 2018 in Lisbon. This tantalizing creation aims at finding sonic, emotional and cognitive multiplicities in the poetry by Portuguese authors (Mário de Sá Carneiro, Fernando Pessoa, Eugénio de Andrade, Herberto Helder, …). Here, the Companhia Maior constitutes a “speaking choir” directed by Miguel Azguime. Also this month, on June 22-23, four works by this composer published by the MIC.PT will be presented at the Extraordinary Voice cycle (O’culto da Ajuda in Lisbon). The works are: Aliterações de Água (2017), Tudo concorre sem saber para um ponto exacto (premiere; 2012-18), Mon silence silencie (premiere; 1999-2018) and A Narrativa do Espaço (premiere; 2001-18).

Lapa - will be presented on June 9 at the 1st Música d’Ponte Festival in Braga (Portugal). The programme of this concert - performed by the Plucked String Orchestra of Minho, Helena Pereira and Beatriz Martinho (percussion), and with the musical direction of Charles Roussin - also includes pieces by Antonio Vivaldi Ernani Aguiar, Celso Machado and Astor Piazzola. The creation of the Plucked String Orchestra of Minho has in its base the idea of associating instruments from the same chordophone family.
