26th July | 09:30 pm, at Casa da Música: For the second year in succession, Casa da Música hosts a training project for students from Academia de Música de Costa Cabral, which culminates in a symphony orchestra concert. The programme is underscored by strong visual elements, including the most famous work by Mussorgsky in which various movements are inspired by a sequence of paintings viewed while walking around an exhibition. The concert conducted by José Eduardo Gomes (in the photo) also features Round Time, a work written by Luís Tinoco in 2002, commissioned by the then Orquestra Nacional do Porto, with elements that the composer likened to “a set of panels from a polyptych”.
