My Music Editions in “Dias da Música”

Since I began editing music for Edições MPMP – mostly in the “Polyphonia” series – published by Movimento Patrimonial pela Música Portuguesa (mpmp) in late 2012, they were featured in their stand at “Dias da Música” a sort-of-“La Folle Journée” that takes place every year in the end of April at Centro Cultural de Belém (Lisbon). It is by far Portugal’s most important musical event, with continuous concerts and the participation almost all Portuguese musical organizations.

For me it is quite an honour to have my editions available to the public. I have now edited over 30 works for the “Polyphonia” series that have been available during the 2013, 2014, 2015 and this year’s edition of “Dias da Música”. It is important to state that Movimento Patrimonial pela Música Portuguesa has been one of the scarce organizations that publish music in Portugal to have dedicated some attention to Portuguese polyphony, being very grateful for their support of my work. My contributions  to the “Polyphonia” series have focused mostly in the works of composers from Évora Cathedral, with new editions of music by Filipe de Magalhães, Duarte Lobo, Manuel Cardoso, Estêvão Lopes Morago, Estêvão de Brito, Diogo Dias Melgaz and even Manuel Mendes and Matheo d’Aranda. They can be found at the Music edition page of Edições MPMP

    1. Thanks! You too.


  3. Thank you for your expressed interest Luís. We were very impressed with the city of Evora, not the least because of its concentration of artists, musicians and academicians (such as your good self), the numbers seemingly out of proportion to the city’s size and location. All demonstrated an admirable and justified pride in Portugal (historical and present-day) which we found inspirational. And then, there was for us also the superb Alentejo food and wine, and the city’s architecture . . . We hope to return :~)

    1. Thank you for your kind words. Indeed, Évora was one of the most important Portuguese cities during the 15th and 16th centuries. The King and his court spent stayed in the city for long periods of time. Nowadays, it’s more quiet, but with the reactivation of the University in 1979, it has maintained a high standard of research and cultural life. I’m actually from the Azores, but love being here. And the Alentejo’s food and wine are quite something :)
      all best
