Mísia

Mísia returns to the Teatro São Luiz to perform her new album, Pura Vida, in which she’ll once again be singing fado that’s neither sad nor happy, as they say. It’s Destiny. She sings the lexis and grammar of emotions: Absence, Body, Destiny, Men and Streets, Time and Longing, everything and almost nothing.

António & Variações

If his passage through the world hadn’t been as fleeting as an incandescent star, António Variações would be 75 this year. Given his intense way of being, it’s impossible to imagine how far he might have gone.

Raquel Tavares and Gospel Collective

Raquel Tavares It’s not by chance that Raquel Tavares is one of the most important voices in contemporary fado. Her life is inseparably intertwined with fado and it was fado that was by her side when, as a girl, she dared to step up onto the stage and win, at the age of 12, the […]

Ana Moura and Sopa de Pedra

  Ana Moura Ana Moura possesses a voice that wanders freely through tradition, while still flirting elegantly with pop music. But what distinguishes her is not just a low and sensual timbre; she’s able to turn any melody instantly into fado. It’s an immediate fuse, an emotional explosion set off with no regard for the […]

Coro Juvenil e Orquestra Juvenil de Cordas da AMAC

Gloria is the best-known sacred work by Antonio Vivaldi, the “Red Priest” who was one of the most important composers of the Baroque period. Written around 1715 for the Ospedale della Pietá in Venice (an institution that took in orphans and provided them with a first-class musical education), it uses the traditional words of Gloria […]

Christmas in Lisbon
Coro Infanto-Juvenil e Orquestra Académica da Universidade de Lisboa

Two of these pieces consist of what were originally unrelated compositions that merged into one: in A Ceremony of Carols Op.28 the Harp solo plays an important role in merging together the different parts; in Carol Symphony it’s possible to make out five well-known Christmas brought together in a symphonic melody. Moving from the UK […]

Christmas in Lisbon
Begoña Olavide & Javier Bergia

The music at the Ismaili Centre will evoke the Al-Andalus, where Muslims, Jews and Christians coexisted during the Middle Ages. Following traces left by these cultures, some of their songs have survived to the present day through oral tradition and will be performed using new arrangements and with a new concept. La Huella de Al-Andalus […]

Christmas in Lisbon
Camerata Atlântica

It will feature Händel’s masterpiece Messias (considered the most famous Oratorio of all) with two arias for soprano; the arias of Bach’s Magnificat and Cantata BWV120; the mastery of Vivaldi and Torelli and Pachelbel’s well-known piece Canon in D Major (considered something of a pop music godfather) along with Albinoni’s Adagio in G Minor. The […]

Christmas in Lisbon
Orquestra Clássica Metropolitana

Everything begins and ends with music brimming with fantasy and bravery: in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, we remember the difficult trials that Prince Tamino has to overcome in order to rescue his beloved in a supernatural tale; in Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, we face the Mouse King’s army and afterwards we join Clara on a travel […]

Christmas in Lisbon
Filomúsica Ensemble

From Natal de Elvas, O Tannenbaum and Adeste Fideles to Schubert’s Ave Maria, there’ll be no shortage of well-known songs to hum along to, which reflect the essence of this group of soloists and instrumentalists from the Teatro Nacional São Carlos. The concert will take place at the Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Amparo (Church […]

Christmas in Lisbon
Orquestra Jovem de Cordas do Conservatório Nacional e ComPasso

This could have been a dated concert, were it not for the works of Brazilian Ernani Aguiar and Englishman John Francis Wade, a name which few associate with Adeste Fideles (“O Come, All Ye Faithful”), but who is in fact responsible for the carol reaching the present day in form we know it. In addition […]
