21st Century Music

Wind ensemble

The development of Portuguese music is at the genesis of the formation of the Lusitanus Ensemble. In this programme, eight pieces by Portuguese composers of various generations and styles are presented, all commissioned and written for this ensemble. A journey through the music of the 21st century, composed by some of the most prestigious national composers, including Anne Victorino d'Almeida, Carlos Azevedo, Alexandre Delgado, Mariana Vieira, Daniel Bernardes, Bernardo Sassetti, Carlos Marques and Eurico Carrapatoso. It should be noted that four of these works were commissioned by the Lusitanus Ensemble in 2020 and 2021, reinforcing the commitment to support national artistic creation in a troubled time.
