As early as 1945, Fernando Lopes-Graça himself invited adaptations of his Canções Heróicas to be sung solo or played by any instrumental ensemble. The aim was to make them accessible to "everyone". Conductor Luís Cardoso accepted the challenge and adapted some of these songs for orchestra. In a different way, Anne Victorino d'Almeida also recovered Zeca Afonso's melodies and brought them to more people with Histórias de Abril. And because it's all about the spirit of change, Beethoven's famous Fate Symphony comes to mind.
