The Enlightenment that set the tone for the second half of the 18th century, the great ideas that opened doors to knowledge and understanding of the world, would not have been possible without an intimate and domestic sphere on which to rely. It was in the atmosphere of a salon and dialogue between confident minds that the Enlightenment was born. So, nothing better than listening to three examples of prolific authors in this aesthetic, whose music so well represents the values that shaped the Age of Enlightenment.

Paula Oliveira, unavoidable jazz singer of the national jazz scene, with an enviable career in Portuguese lands and beyond! She studied at Hot Club de Portugal, Taller de Musics de Barcelona or Manhattan School Of Music (NY) where she resided. The list of mentors is huge, including names like Phil Woods, Norma Winston, Reggie Workman, to name a few. From Jazz to Portuguese Music, there are several edited works. She thus joins the Orquestra de Jazz do Algarve, to celebrate the International Jazz Day, on two different dates. After You’ve Gone, is the theme that provides the guiding line of this energetic Concert of contrasts: if it weren’t for the orchestration “Up Swing” by Sarah Vaughan. Other great standards join him Come Rain Or Come Shine, Fly Me To The Moon, Let The Good times Roll, or, in more 80’s sounds This Masquerade. Highlight for some orchestrations by Claus Nymark, a Danish musician residing in Portugal for decades, who has contributed a lot to Portuguese Jazz, whether in teaching, as a musician or directing the Angrajazz Orchestra, in the Azores. It is a pleasure for us to join his Music, the Sound of Claus, Paula Oliveira, and our Orchestra, in […]

WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE! Classic Lethes Cycle OCS – Southern Classical Orchestra THU. 11 MAY / 19:00 Tickets: €7.50 Duration: 45 to 60′ // M/6 Music lovers say that there has not been, in the entire history of music, a period as rich as the 20th century. From decade to decade, languages and possibilities are renewed, rewriting history at a breakneck pace. This century is the time of “isms”, such as modernism, futurism, surrealism, expressionism, among many others. This concert intends to show a little of that variety, through music from three countries and three different decades: From the Frenchman Jean Françaix, music from the immediate post-war period can be heard, written in 1948, characteristic for its vivacity and exploration of new possibilities, although still based on a modernist language heir to the decades between wars. Then, with the British Gustav Holst we go to 1903, at the dawn of the new century, still full of late 19th century reminiscences. Finally, the concert concludes with the inexhaustible brilliance and sense of invention of György Ligeti, who, with his Six Trifles for wind quintet, rewrites his famous cycle of pieces for piano entitled Musica Ricercata, which is a source […]

LAGOA CHOIR WEEK 23rd edition | 14th-20nd May 2023 The Cultural Association of Lagoa, Ideias do Levante (Algarve), in partnership with the municipality of Lagoa (Algarve), will organize the 23rd edition of Semana Coral de Lagoa (Lagoa Choir Week, http://www.semanacoral.net/), a non-competitive choir festival that will take place within the Council of Lagoa from the 14th up until the 20th of May. The 2023 edition will feature the following talented groups: The Pennsylvania State University Men’s Glee Club (USA), Grupo Coral Ossónoba (Faro), Coral Almira (Alcácer do Sal) and Coral Ideias do Levante (Lagoa, Algarve). Each year, for one week, singing sweeps through Lagoa, and voices from all places unite in a harmonious feast of melodies and emotions. The Choir Week of Lagoa is already a reference in the panorama of Algarvian choir festivals. It began as the tiny cry of a strong and determined child, then grew with school songs learnt and sung, and now has become a searcher of new sounds and experiences in polyphonic choir singing. Each year it yearns to go farther, to innovate, to dare to fly even higher. Each year, the Choir Week of Lagoa is bigger and more mature. And with it, the […]

CONCERT OF EUROPE: METAMORPHOSES OF LOVE OPERA – Portuguese Philharmonic Orchestra 19 and 20 MAY Fri. 15:00/21:30 and Sat. 21:30 Tickets: €10; <30; >65 – 7.50€ Duration: 60′ // M/6 The last chords of a poignant “Metamorphosen” by Richard Strauss die. The musicians, who are also the choir, exchange their positions as instrumentalists with those of choristers (meaning: to the Greek taste). The characters – Europa and Zeus – reflect this personalized condition: Zeus, sweet, engaging, hypocritical in contrast to a firm Europe, with determination and conviction, after all a prisoner (in itself) in search of liberation. Europa opposes Zeus, who one day kidnapped her and dictated her fate. And in the dialogue between the two remain the trampled petals that are all of us Europeans, painful heirs of a myth who dares to resist. Conductor: Osvaldo Ferreira Narrator/Baritone: Miguel Maduro Dias Soprano: Ana Maria Pinto Music: Sara Ross (world premiere) Text: Alexandre Honorado Promoter: ACTA

Duration: 60 minutes Age rating: M/6 Prices: €10.00 general public; €5.00 <30 and >65 Going out into the street, looking at the open sky, breathing fresh, open air. Inhale again, take a deep breath, find life and wake up the sun. Looking for castles in the clouds, deciphering constellations, absorbing the night through every pore. Look in the eyes. Climbing the mountain, smelling the flowers and the pine forest, picking blackberries, sleeping in the open, diving in the cold, clear water of the river. To be. Being on this planet. No barriers, no walls, no masks. Have face. Have a voice. Sing at the top of your lungs and dance. Get off the walls, fly with the wind. Finding the space inside us. Inside, outside, in the middle of the world. Wind heads. With all the letters. Inês Pupo and Gonçalo Pratas
