APPACDM & SRC . creators & performers
Led by Merit Ariane, groups of young people from Setúbal share songs and stories they have created, inspired by the original purpose of this museum building as a sardine cannery and by the memories of local women who, on hearing the siren call to announce that the latest catch has landed, rushed from their homes to get to work at the factory.

Liquid Architecture and Frozen Music
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), the great German writer, statesman and natural philosopher, once said that “Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music”: his idea suggests that all processes of creation and invention are connected by a human’s need to express something.
Mahler’s Houses and Composing Huts
Prof. Rui Vieira Nery . speaker
The idea of Home – local roots and a sense of place – pervades much of Gustav Mahler’s music. The houses he chose to inhabit and the huts he built in which to compose provided vital context and inspiration for his works.

Programme: Mahler Adagietto from Symphony no. 5, Mahler Symphony no. 4
The starting point of Mahler’s Symphony no. 4 was a song he had originally composed from a German collection of folk poetry, Des Knaben Wunderhorn, which was a source of inspiration for all his early symphonies. His setting of Das himmlische Leben (The Heavenly Life) became the final movement of his 4th and, only after he had made his home in Maiernigg (Austria) and begun to write in his nearby ‘composing hut’, he was finally able to complete this symphony. The famous Adagietto from Mahler’s Symphony no. 5, a musical love letter to Alma, his new bride, was also composed at his hut in Maiernigg.
