Cristina Branco and João Paulo Esteves da Silva live in Porto

December 18 at Novo Ático (Coliseu Porto Ageas)

Cristina Branco and pianist João Paulo Esteves da Silva take the stage at Novo Ático (Coliseu Porto AGEAS), in Porto, on the 18th of December for the presentation of their latest joint work ‘Amoras numa Tarde de Outono’.

Since ‘Post Scriptum’ (2000), Cristina Branco’s second album, João Paulo Esteves da Silva and the singer have been bringing together unique live experiences, seen and heard by distant audiences, but never recorded. This gave rise to the genesis of ‘Amoras numa Tarde de Outono‘, a new album released in 2022 that seeks to record, as a photographic document, the work that this duo has been weaving on stage for the last 20 years. The album is now finally presented live in Porto.

Among the fourteen songs that make up ‘Amoras numa Tarde de Outono‘ there are several unpublished and some reissues, such as the single ‘O Lenço da Carolina’, whose original is contained in ‘Alegria‘, Cristina Branco’s 2013 album. Most of the songs were written by João Paulo Esteves da Silva, but the album also has contributions from Manuela de Freitas and José Mário Branco in ‘Este Silêncio‘, Santos Moreira and Linhares Barbosa in ‘Fado Menor‘ and Ricardo J. Dias in ‘Uma Outra Noite‘.

In this concert, Cristina Branco and João Paulo Esteves da Silva will interpret the new work in its original formation – the piano and voice recital – thus seeking to recreate its simultaneously intimate and kaleidoscopic atmosphere, somewhere between fado and traditional music.

‘Amoras numa Tarde de Outono’ will have a limited edition on vinyl, to be revealed in Spring 2023.

‘We sought to create an album that conveyed the closeness that only a piano and voice recital can offer. I hope that passes on the record, that intimacy.’

‘I’ve been working with João since my second album and since then we’ve been collaborating, João composing texts and music for my little madness, and that’s how we built a mesh of 20 years of understanding. This is a record of that understanding, like a conversation.’
