FRONT(I)ER is a multimedia cooperation project that brings together composers, musicians and directors from Portugal, Spain and France within the framework of producing a performance about the cultural traditions on each side of the “frontiers” of the Iberian Peninsula. Inspired on the songs that would accompany the labours of agriculture and raising cattle such as harvesting the grapes or other crops or tending the flocks as well as life in the mountains and villages, reflecting both the changing seasons of the year and the traditional festivals, this performance brings together on stage the Soli-Tutti (twelve singers) group and instrumentalists (a cello and double bass duo, Beira viola, accordion, and Portuguese guitar) from the region of Castelo Branco, Portugal.

The performance features interpretations of works by contemporary Portuguese composers (Jaime Reis, António Sousa Dias and Rui Dias) and Spanish composers from Extremadura (Inés Badalo, Rebeca Santiago and Enrique Muñoz). Jean-Philippe Dequin composed a piece for the Soli-Tutti vocal group based upon traditional themes before “Vislumbre” by Emmanuel Nunes brings this event to a close.

At the end of the concert there will be a conversation with some of the composers and the public at the Modern  Collection Building about contemporary creation and traditional music.

Maximum 2 tickets per person.
