Project MUSIVUS organizes, in an informal context, a conversation between a composer and a performer, open to the public. The first cycle of this project counts with four sessions, that take place at the Auditório Maestro Frederico de Freitas, at Sociedade Portuguesa de Autores, na Av. Duque de Loulé, 31, Lisbon, twice a month. The first session will take place on the 16th October.
The theme of these sessions focuses the work of an invited composer to be discussed and performed by an invited performer. The main objective of this project is to create a perspective dialogue between creation and interpretation of contemporary vanguard music. At the end of the session, the performer will present the discussed work.
As an activity promoted by the Portuguese Association of Composers (APC), project MUSIVUS proposes to divulge contemporary vanguard music, both in its compositional and interpretative component, focusing particularly on Portuguese music. In this sense, the project offers to a broad public the possibility to contact with the intimate reality both of the creation process of vanguard music and the multiplicity of processes involved in the interpretation of recently created works.
The first cycle of this project begins with the presence of Composer Isabel Soveral, who will be talking with violin player José Machado, around the work Anamorphoses III (1995), for violin and electronic.
The next session, that will take place on the 30th October, will be with Composer Ricardo Ribeiro and saxophone player Henrique Portovedo.
