On the 21st and the 22nd of February, at 07.00 pm – Liceu Camões Auditorium and at 04.00 pm - Orient Museum Auditorium, respectively, the work “Zoom in – Zoom out” will be performed in two recitals with the percussion trio Solistas da Metropolitana (Marco Fernandes, João Carlos Pacheco and Fernando Llopis).
In the same program (live broadcast on the Antena 2, 21st Feb.) this trio will also perform works by Smith, Takemitsu and Xenakis.
Dedicated to Miquel Bernat, “Zoom in – Zoom out” was written between December 2009 and January 2010 as part of a project entitled Deconstructing Bossa, conceived and premièred by the Drumming Percussion Group.
