The CCB received Mísia, who enchanted with “the most beautiful”, which include some of her most emblematic and striking themes.
A night where the music, poetry and career of the fado singer were celebrated, which so many excellent themes have given to Portuguese music, made of genuine delivery and honest reverence for a past that she studied, but that never allowed her to arrest, giving over the years voice to new poets, experimenting with new sounds.
“The most beautiful” in the artist’s words:
“The most beautiful were not chosen because they are better music and words. They are beautiful because they were important and kind in my way and I also hope in the emotions of those who have ever heard them. Each one of them has a special story, which crossed my path destiny, they have thus become part of me.
I want to share with you this list of beautiful themes hoping they will touch your hearts as they touch mine.
There will be some surprise guests in this ritual of thanksgiving and celebration of Music and Poetry. Also some unreleased themes that were never recorded.”
The most beautiful, had lyrics and music by renowned names, such as Amália Rodrigues, Helder Moutinho, Natália Correia, Vasco Graça Moura and Agustina Bessa-Luíz, among others, but also homage to Carlos Paredes and Astor Piazzola, and ended with “Vivendo sem mim” by the fado diva, Amália, sung without instruments by Mísia.
On stage with Mísia were the musical director and pianist Fabrizio Romano, on the Portuguese guitar Bernardo Couto and on the Fado viola, Daniel Pinto.
