Vasco Mendonça: Step Right Up

Gulbenkian Orchestra

Portuguese composer Vasco Mendonça regards this portrait album as a letter to himself written over time and with different chapters that throw light on his long-standing obsessions with drama, ritual and precision mechanism. Group Together, Avoid Speech highlights the string and woodwind principals of the wonderful Gulbenkian Orchestra to create a Baroque concerto grosso on steroids, while Unanswerable Light is a memorial to a friend and a meditation on fury and loss.

The piano concerto Step Right Up is a ritual celebration between the most incredible music box the orchestra and the most beautiful sound machine the piano.
