Music goes on
It is time to stay home. The Grand Auditorium of the Gulbenkian Foundation is closed but we want to keep on bringing music to you.
On this page you will be able to watch and rewatch a wide set of contents carefully selected for our public: concerts, documentaries, playlists on Spotify and also educational videos about the instruments of the orchestra and a backstage tour of the Grand Auditorium.
Discover or rediscover performances by the Gulbenkian Orchestra and Choir, staged concerts, piano recitals and chamber music. Each Tuesday we will post one concert, which will be available for 30 days.
Gulbenkian Orchestra at home
Music goes on with the Gulbenkian Orchestra. With a silent Grand Auditorium, we use this stage to share with you the great art of our orchestra. From their homes, 32 musicians play an excerpt from the 1st movement of Mozart’s Symphonny No. 40, hoping that they will soon meet their audience again. Bravo!
Gulbenkian Choir at home
Freedom echoed through 36 voices of the Gulbenkian Choir as they interpreted, from their homes, a poem by Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen in a piece composed by Miguel Jesus. A different way to celebrate that “initial, wholesome and pristine day”, as the poet described it, until we can be together at the Grand Auditorium once again.
A Musical Journey across Europe
Music is now more important than ever. That is why we joined forces with concert halls from the ECHO network to share with you one concert every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 7 p.m, on Gulbenkian Música’s Facebook page.
Following the trend of several concert halls across the world, the MET Opera in New York is making freely available one opera production a day on their website.
Follow us on Spotify and discover the playlists we prepared specially for you. You can find music to study or work, but also some of the great masterpieces in the history of music and other essential repertoire for each instrument of the orchestra.
