The month of July/2016 ends with two new premieres of works by Luís Carvalho.
On July 29, at Teatro Ribeiro Conceição (Lamego), the Portuguese Symphony Band, conducted by Francisco Ferreira, will present a programme exclusively devoted to contemporary Portuguese music written for Symphonic Band/Wind Orchestra, including works by Rui Rodrigues, Nelson Jesus, Fábio Cachão, and, by Luís Carvalho, the revised version in three movements of Chiaroscuro. This piece, originaly conceived in only two movements, derives from a comission of the Portuguese Symphony Band, who presented its World premiere in Casa da Música (Porto), on January/2016.
The following day, July 30, at Teatro Micaelense (Ponta Delgada/Azores), the Filarmónica Nossa Senhora das Neves (Banda da Relva), will present the World premiere of Gentios são os olhos negros… (Glosas sobre um tema popular açoriano), at whose concert the author (Luís Carvalho) will also conduct the group for this premiere. The remainder of the concert (also dedicated exclusively to Portuguese music for Wind Orchestra by composers Sara Ross, João Costa, Carlos Caires, Fábio Cachão, Lino Guerreiro and Carlos Marecos) will be conducted by Hélio Soares.
