Duration: 100 minutes



The Gulbenkian Orchestra is joining the commemorations of the 50th anniversary of 25th April, the founding day of Portuguese democracy, in a concert composed of a work by the Portuguese composer Nuno da Rocha and Beethoven’s famous Heroic Symphony. Half a century after the 25th April 1974, the “Initial day whole and clear / Where we emerge from the night and the silence”, described in the words of Sophia de Mello Breyner, it is also through music – which played a determining role in the Carnation Revolution – that we celebrate life in freedom.
