The “Music and the World – Encontros Sonoros Atlânticos” project is already on the road and will close its cycle with a concert in Ponta Delgada, on September 18, at 9 pm, at the Colégio dos Jesuítas Church – Carlos Machado Museum.
This show features the participation of soprano Sandra Medeiros and pianist Francisco Sassetti and focuses on the presentation of works by Francisco de Lacerda, Freitas Branco and Vianna da Motta.
With this concert, which has the support of the Ponta Delgada City Council, the program that presented works by Philip Glass and two world premieres, by composers Vasco Mendonça and Ângela da Ponte, ends. In total, there were three works in absolute debut throughout this cycle of six concerts in Mainland Portugal and the Azores, which now culminate in this show that promises to be memorable.
The cycle “Music and the World – Encontros Sonoros Atlânticos” consists of a series of recitals in which the work of the Azorean composer, musicologist, and conductor Francisco de Lacerda (1869 – 1934) is seen as the stimulus for the creation of new musical pieces, closely related to the places where they perform.
