Fri, May 19, 19h. The organizers describe the venue as “Um Teatro em Cada Bairro”, in Avenidas, without explaining what that means, stay tuned…

Always in the company of the piano, the trumpet and bassoon stand out in this program with music by one of the most important composers of the 20th century, Paul Hindemith. In the period of two decades, between 1935 and 1955, the German musician wrote for practically all the instruments of the orchestra. Examples of this are the sonatas for Bassoon and Trumpet, composed respectively in 1938 and 1939; before and after the start of World War II, therefore. Beyond the artistic proposal, he tried to get to know each one of them as much as possible, always proposing to learn to play them, even if rudimentary. This allowed him to compose later with enormous confidence and to obtain an unmistakable tonal refinement. Already exiled in the USA, Hindemith would compose the Concerto for Bassoon and Trumpet in 1949. This is a work that can be heard in the light of these two sonatas.

Sun, May 21, 16h, Auditório Mar da Palha – inside the Oceanário (Parque das Nações)

This program is divided into two parts, both filled with original music by Alexêi Tolpygo composed for voice and instrumental ensemble in a style that combines characteristics of Progressive Rock with familiar aspects of contemporary classical music. The first part brings together seven songs based on poetic works dating from the 13th and 14th centuries, including two poems by King D. Dinis, in Galician-Portuguese. Contrary to historical revivalism, it explores new creative dimensions based on a priceless linguistic heritage, thus reconfigured with new influences. The second part continues the same polystylistic disposition, always based on the word, but this time covering different geographies. In five seasons,
