A flute narrates the story, through the music of Frederico de Freitas. We start from the collaborations of this composer with cinema, from A Severa to Amália Rodrigues in Fado, História d’uma Cantadeira. Finally, we hear an excerpt from this composer’s flute concerto, in a performance that links traditional and erudite elements of Freitas’ work.

In a duo with pianist Isolda Crespi Rubio, she recorded two CDs (Numérica, Falaut) followed by a solo CD with the Geneva Chamber Orchestra (La dolce volta). As the first guest flute, she collaborates with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Teatro alla Scala Orchestra of Milan, Les Dissonances, and Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, among others. Born in Cabeceiras de Basto, Adriana Ferreira studied flute at the Escola Profissional Artística do Vale do Ave – Artave, in the class of teacher Joaquina Mota.
