River of Time – New Music (Frontiers)


Venue: Cine-Theater of Nazaré

Grupo de Música Contemporânea de Lisboa

After a year (2020) dedicated to its 50 years of history and the evocative ephemerides of Jorge Peixinho and Clotilde Rosa, this year we present River of Time.

A season of renewal of the contemporary musical tradition, which fluidity of time, bringing the heritage to the present, revisiting the origins, without, however, ceasing to build bridges to the vanguard of contemporaneity.

Nobody bathes twice in the same river... - Heraclitus

This is a thought that has always guided the music and aesthetics of Jorge Peixinho and of the musicians that accompanied him in founding the GMCL. It is in this same River that we begin the new cycle, presenting a turning point season, both in the world context in which we live, and in the paths that we want to auspice for the new times of music creation in Portugal.
