Canções de Lemúria is an embracing project that aims to promote the Portuguese culture. Four composers were invited to write for Marina Pacheco (soprano) & Olga Amaro (piano) and the result was a cd recording, which gave space to a namesake stage performance.

Eduardo Luís Patriarca, Osvaldo Fernandes, Paulo Ferreira-Lopes and Nuno Jacinto composed works for the duo using texts by Valter Hugo Mãe, Gonçalo M. Tavares, José Luís Peixoto and Paulo José Miranda, respectively. These four names from the Portuguese literature won the Prize José Saramago, being protagonists of major international careers. Alongside these names the composers have a successful career in Portugal and abroad.

With the recording of the CD, a namesake performance happens under the direction of Pedro Lamares, who is also on stage and it has the scenography of the plastic artist Manuela Pimentel.

A special project that makes us reflect about the world and life’s ephemerality!

Under a quality premise that has been leading all stakeholders career Lemuria’s Songs aims to be an innovative concept.
