Activities of the composers published by the MIC​.​PT

Peaceful Meeting​ (2016) for cello and double bass is the piece by Clotilde Rosa (1930-2017), which will be performed by the CoPeCo Collective on May 3 in the framework of the World New Music Days 2019. This time the ISCM Festival is organised in Estonia with the theme Through the Forest of Songs. Also this month, on May 15, the Artistic School of the National Conservatoire (CN) organises a concert at the O'culto da Ajuda in Lisbon, dedicated to the music by this composer published by the MIC.PT. Clotilde é uma Rosa (Clotilde is a Rose) is a performance coordinated by Jorge Sá Machado, with the participation of the CN students from the classes of: Anne Kaasa, João Pereira Coutinho, Ana Castanhito, Rui Martins, Salvador Parola and Ricardo Mateus. The event marks the composer's 89th anniversary, which she would have celebrated on May 11. "I have this feature, which is very mine – I'm both romantic and lyrical. There are a lot of people who tell me that when they listen to my music, they can instantly recognise that it's «mine». I've never betrayed the contemporary language, but I've reinvented it in my own way" – told the MIC.PT Clotilde Rosa in October 2017.

Remembering the future​ (2019) four countertenor, soprano, clarinet, viola and double bass, with text by Tane Steven, is a new work by Daniel Davis. Its first performance will take place on May 23 at the Wigmore Hall in London, during the concert in the framework of the Voiceworks project. It's organised by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama where this composer published by the MIC.PT is realising the Doctorate in Composition. The work will be performed by: Nils Wanderer (countertenor), Sophie Sparrow (soprano), Edward Holmes (clarinet), Michiel Wittink (viola) and João Lucas (double bass). Voiceworks is an annual collaborative project organised to create new works with voice by means of workshops and exchange between young composers, poets, writers, singers and performers. The new pieces are then performed in the renowned Wigmore Hall. "During the process os sketching the work the idea of combining the whole collaborative project with visual art emerged" – reveals Daniel Davis. Thus the creation of an image for the score cover, inspired in the music and text, has been commissioned to the French visual artist Jérémie Queyras.

In the first half of May João Castro Pinto – composer published by the MIC.PT – is continuing his tour around Eastern Europe. In this sense, the fourth concert of the tournée will take place in the context of the Helikoosolek performance series, on May 1 in Tartu (Estonia). On this occasion João Castro Pinto will also make a presentation summing up his work as composer. The concert finalising his tour is integrated in the World Music Days 2019. Obsidia – of the Invisible Sounds or of the Audible Images (2017) is the title of the acousmatic work, which the composer will spatialise in concert on May 5 at the Estonian Public Broadcasting Studios in Tallinn. "One of the connotations of the term obsidiar (to obsess) is the idea of obsessive pursuit, of insistent focus. This idea of insistence is musically employed in the sense of the exploration of sonic aspects that, throughout the piece, are heard – reveals João Castro Pinto in the programme note.

This month the music by Hugo Vasco Reis will be performed on various occasions. The piece Some Lines Mixing a Color (commission by the Síntese – Contemporary Music Group) will be premiered on May 3 at the Municipal Theatre of Guarda, and performed on May 4 and 5 at the Music Conservatoire of Viseu and the Contemporary Culture Centre, Castelo Branco.

The repertoire of these performances also includes other three pieces by the composers published by the MIC.PT: Christopher Bochmann, João Madureira and João Pedro Oliveira. "My work belongs to the Fluxus cycle, whose pieces are in-spired in elements of physics and where I develop musical elements related with certain phenomenons in fluid me-chanics" – says Jaime Reis. Still this month, the work A Om-nisciência é um Colectivo – Parte IV by this composer published by the MIC.PT will be performed at the concert Em Louvor da Água (In Praise of Water), on May 17 at the Mãe d´Água das Amoreiras Reservoir in Lisbon.

This work, commissioned by the Le Printemps de l’Europe Festival, "is a cycle of six nostalgic pieces" – revelas Paulo Bastos. And he continues: "the narrative is created upon the musical memories, which I keep in my ears since childhood. They are sounds form my ideal, merged between a bucolic village Serra do Alvão, and the musical themes from the Trás-os-Montes province in Portugal". This month the music by this composer published by the MIC.PT will be also performed on two other occasions: by the Kla-Vier Duo, on May 7 in the context of the 13th Síntese – Contemporary Music Cycle of Guarda (the piece Adsum [2004] for four hand piano); and on May 24, by the Jost Costa Duo, in the framework of the Kulturraum Die Flora in Gelsenkirchen, Germany (the recently composed piece – Sou já do que fui [2019] for four hand piano).

Construções na areia (2018) for four hand piano is a new work by Helder Gonçalves – composer published by the MIC.PT –, which was premiered in the second half of April at the Calouste Gulbenkian Music Conservatoire. The concert was organised on the occasion of the release by the AvA Musical Editions of new score volumes with Portuguese repertoire for pianists – 4 Hand Piano and Pieces of the Left Hand (coordination / selection by Bruno Belthoise and João Pedro M. Santos). This event, with the participation of 40 young Portuguese and French pianists, will repeat on May 17 at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Paris.
"The piece Construções na areia was composed after the Summer holidays. For somebody who lives in Portugal's interior, going to the beach is always something special. The obtained sonorities have been inspired by playing with children, by the naughtiness of the sea and particularly of the sand" – says Helder Gonçalves.

Storyboard (2003) is the title of the work for four hand piano by Fernando C. Lapa, included in the programme of the concert by the Kla-Vier Duo, taking place at the Municipal Theatre in Guarda on May 7, in the context of the 13th Síntese – Contemporary Music Cycle. This month the same piece by this composer published by the MIC.PT will be also presented on May 17 at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Paris, at a concert organised on the occasion of the release by the AvA Musical Editions of new volumes with Portuguese repertoire for pianists – 4 Hand Piano and Pieces of the Left Hand (coordination by Bruno Belthoise & João Pedro M. Santos). And at the end of the month – on May 31 at the Carlos Alberto Theatre in Porto, within the project Coisas que não há que há by the Teatro do Frio, with the participation of Portuguese com-posers – the Coro Lira, conducted by Raquel Couto, will perform Fernando C. Lapa's work: Canção dos adultos (poem by Manuel António Pina), for voices, violin & piano.

Portuguese Composers at the World Music Days 2019 in Estonia

Through the Forest of Songs is the title of the World Music Days 2019 Festival by the ISCM – International Society for Contemporary Music, co-organised by the Estonian Composers' Union. It'll be taking place between May 2 and 10 in Tallinn and Tartu in Estonia. As in the Festival's previous editions, one of the objectives of the World Music Days 2019 is to present a repertoire “reflecting contemporary music in as rich and extensive spectrum, as possible”. This year the Portuguese representation at the World Music Days is composed of three works by the composers published by the MIC.PT: Clotilde Rosa, Hugo Vasco Reis and João Castro Pinto. The piece by the first composer – Peaceful Meeting (2016) for cello and double bass – will be performed by the CoPeCo Collective on May 3 at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. Metamorphosis and Resonances for Harp Solo (2017)is the title of the piece by Hugo Vasco Reis, included in the concert programme by the Ensemble Una Corda, on May 4 at the Estonian Academy of Sciences. And on May 5, at the studios of the Estonian National Broadcaster, during the concert by the Estonian Electronic Music Society's Ensemble, João Castro Pinto will realise the spatialisation of his acoustic work Obsidia – of the Invisible Sounds or of the Audible Images (2017). Every year the Miso Music Portugal and the MIC.PT, as the Portuguese ISCM Section, invite various Portuguese composers to include their works in the official applications for the World Music Days, thus ensuring the presence of new Portuguese music creations at this annual contemporary music feast.
