The Gulbenkian puts on some very expensive — usually worth it — and quickly sold-out shows, but they give back too, with free concerts throughout the year. Here’s how they put it (Deepl-translated from Portuguese):
“The Gulbenkian Orchestra is made up of professional instrumentalists of great technical and artistic quality. Throughout each season, they also perform chamber music recitals, with free admission. At the same time, they contribute in a relevant way to a better appreciation and appreciation of chamber music, from the current repertoire of the genre to the premiere of new works.”
Typically, you have to line up to get tickets at 10am the day of the show, with a max of two tickets per person.
Here are the concerts:
October 16: Works by Beethoven, Mozart
November 6: Works by Schönberg, Brahms
December 18: Works by Castello, Buonamente, Schmelzer, Fontana
February 5, 2024: Works by Ravel, Messiaen
March 18, 2024: Works by Brahms, Dvorˇ ák
April 29, 2024: Works by Debussy, Holst, Stravinsky
May 13, 2024: Works by South American composers
