Meeting of virtuosos brings together popular and erudite music in an exclusive concert.
Som no Coreto, one of the most popular intimate concert projects in Lisbon, brings next Saturday, May 28, at 7 pm, to two important Brazilian musicians: João Ventura, who has already had the blessing of the singer Madonna, and Gabriel Selvage. Tickets are limited and reservations must be made by email.
João Ventura, pianist, singer, and composer, together with Gabriel Selvage, guitarist and also singer and composer, challenge themselves to unite different musical universes, expanding the traced contours and giving new meaning to art, in a meeting between popular and erudite music.
In the concert lineup are Sonata ao Luar (L.V. Beethoven), Insensatez (Tom Jobim/Vinicius de Moraes), Ne Me Quitte Pas (Jacques Brel), Fantasia-Improviso (F. Chopin), Let it Be (Paul Mccartney), Ave Maria (C. Gounod); Hallellujah (L. Cohen) and Pour Elise (L. V. Beethoven), among other songs.
A Brazilian by nationality and a Lisboner at heart, he holds a Ph.D. in Musical Arts from Universidade Nova de Lisboa, in Portugal. João developed a mixture of classical and popular music, which he called Contraponto. The artist has always believed in the complementarity between these musical styles.
He participated alongside Toquinho on his tour of Portugal and Brazil. In 2018, Madonna fell in love with his music and invited him to accompany her to the Met Gala in New York the same year.
Brazilian musician, composer, and music producer, he brings the Latin American sound of his land mixed with diverse folkloric expressions from around the world. The virtuoso musician, with several albums released, has performed in several countries in Latin America, Europe, and Asia. In 2018, he was awarded the Açoriano de Música award, in the Best Interpreter category.
