Fratres is one of Arvo Pärt’s most admired pieces. Created in 1977, based on the principles of the technique he described as “tintinnabuli”, it is a milestone in the resurgence of the music of the Estonian composer. Ligeti’s Violin Concerto (1989-1993) is a synthesis between the avant-garde of the time and the more traditional, melodic and formal conventions. Finally, Schoenberg’s Symphony No. 1 is a very technically demanding work within the chamber repertoire. A programme focusing exclusively on the 20th century, featuring José Eduardo Gomes, the recent winner of the European Union Orchestra Conducting Competition, and André Gaio Pereira, winner of the Prémio Jovens Músicos in 2017.
Chamber Symphony No. 1, op. 9
