Like the different dialects and accents found in the languages spoken around the world, most forms of music carry in their sound-worlds the individual voices of their composers and the distinctive nature of their places. Many composers have drawn on the folk songs and dances or the myths and legends of the places which they call home: some, like those included in this concert, have gone still further and created music which captures the very essence of their homelands and somehow define their national identities. This programme also celebrates Portuguese talent, including Nuno Coelho who won the Prémio Jovens Músicos in 2016, and the festive homecoming of some of Setúbal’s professional musicians currently living and working elsewhere in the world.
