ABOUT THIS EVENT

The Concert 19th century Portuguese Music promotes the poetry and music of Portuguese authors. At its core is the investigation of musical sources and the performance of works by Portuguese authors or residents in Portugal during the 19th century. Most of these authors, poets and composers, are unknown. In this concert, popular music and popular lyrics as well as more educated music, were adapted to voice and keyboard during the late 19th century and published in the city of Porto. Few examples of these publications still exist today. We aim to perform this music for the 21st century public and to bring back memories of the songs that we heard from our grandparents. The repertoire of the concert includes works from the CDs released in 2017 and 2019. Although most of these works are not performed nowadays and therefore virtually unknown, some still endure, especially in children’s rimes and some themes were successively reused in works by more recent Portuguese authors such as Alexandre Rey-Colaço.
