Classical music and science often go hand in hand. That’s why for three Fridays in July, the Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa comes to Lisbon’s Academy of Sciences to classy things up a bit, and here’s what they say:
“The Noble Hall of the Academy of Sciences is one of the most discreet treasures in the city of Lisbon. In addition to the library assets of the former Franciscan Convent of Jesus, it keeps valuable works of scientific content and documents that help to understand the history of Portugal from the 14th century onwards. Topping the shelves, there is a ceiling with splendid frescoes by the 18th-century painter Pedro Alexandrino de Carvalho, which reflects excellent acoustics for musical sharing. These are plenty of reasons for the Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa to return to this venue this July, with three programs in which it will perform works by Haydn, Schumann, Schubert, Rossini, Mendelssohn, Hummel, and Joly Braga Santos.”
