The Concerto for Viola (2016) by António Pinho Vargas will be performed by the violist Diet Poppen and by the Gulbenkian Orchestra conducted by José Eduardo Gomes, during the Gala Concert of the 11th Young Musicians' Festival, taking place on October 2 at the Grande Auditório of the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon. The programme of this concert will also include the premiere of the winning work at the SPA/ Antena 2 Composition Prize – Apneia by João Caldas – and a to-be-announced piece performed by the winning-soloist of the Maestro Silva Pereira Prize/ Young Musician of the Year 2020/21. “One of the focuses of the four-recent works for orchestra (including the Concerto for Viola), was to unveil and follow the 'leading tone', either in the lines or in the chords. Within the patent tensions, in non-tonal music languages one can chase and search which particular note, which instrumental sound or which determined sonic mass can acquire this property of being a 'leading tone'...“ – said this composer published by the MIC.PT in the MIC.PT Interview from February 2021.

Composers, performers and the audience” – said Hugo Vasco Reis in the Interview realised by the MIC.PT in October 2019.

This month Patrícia Sucena de Almeida, composer published by the MIC.PT, photographer and multidisciplinary artist, who's particularly interested in the transversality between various arts, participates in the collective exhibition Admirável Mundo Novo (Brave New World), where she'll present two individual projects and be involved in two collective ones. The exhibition will take place on October 9 at the Porcelain Society in Coimbra. In these projects Patrícia Sucena de Almeida transversally combines the photography/ space and the sculpture/ mechanisms/ sound/ space. The exhibition is organised by the Pescada n.º 5 Group and the Há Baixa Association, being constituted by a safe, profusely illuminated, one-way, 500-meter path, with 45 stopping points at various pavilions: installation, video, sculpture, picture, painting, photography and music performances.

On October 2 at the Main Hall of the Teatro Aveirense, Vítor Rua, together with the director Edgar Pêra, will give a performance in the context of the cine-concert, Aveiro Revisited.

In Aveiro Edgar Pêra will be creating live filme footage in dialogue with the performer, musician and composer published by the MIC.PT Vítor Rua, while the VJammer and stereographer Claudio Vasques will be manipulating the images, mixing them with pre-edited films constituted by cine-diaries filmed in Aveiro by Edgar Pêra during various years, as well as with other films form the city's historic archives. “Since I'm both an improviser and composer, there's the constant ping-pong between these two complementary activities – said Vítor Rua in the MIC.PT Interveiw from December 2016.

At First Hand: Rui Penha

The Research and Invention Music radio broadcast continues the cycle At First Hand, giving the word to the composers and challenging them to analyse some of their works. The proposal is to allow us to “dive into” the creative universe of the ones who write music, and thus to understand how the composers conceive and work the sonic materials and the music forms, until reaching the final work. During these two programmes the composer Rui Penha will present us two of his works: pendulum (2012), for flute, bass clarinet, piano, violin, cello, electronics and video; and 3 quadros sobre o fado (2013), revealing some of the processes, materials and ideas that led to the final result, based on some of the metric, melodic and harmonic characteristics of fado. Rui Penha, who's also professor and researcher, has been particularly interested in the relations between music and technology, either within software programming or developing new music-expression interfaces.
