Portuguese music comes to the fore in this recital by the Quarteto de Cordas de Matosinhos. Popularuskia is a set of pieces commissioned by the composer from Coimbra, Sérgio Azevedo, in 2016, all of which based on popular Portuguese melodies such as "Rimanço de Don Fernando", "Não se me dá que vindimem" (Beira Baixa) and "Ó ó, menino ó" (Trás-os-Montes). The programme begins with the world premiere of a new work by the Young Composer in Residence at Casa da Música, Carlos Lopes, completed with distinguished quartets of the repertoire of Boccherini and Mendelssohn.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Casa da Música implemented the following safety measures:
• Mandatory use of mask inside the building of Casa da Música;
• Hand hygiene;
• Compliance with social distancing rules.
Failure to comply with these measures prevents access to concerts, educational activities and guided tours held at Casa da Música.
