H.E. the Ambassador of Portugal in Rome Dr. Pedro Nuno Bártolo will be present.
The music of the most important Portuguese composer of the 20th century is linked to the poetry of Fernando Pessoa, the greatest Portuguese poet of the 20th century, one of the most difficult to deal with musically.
This is a musical offering of rare value and execution, also due to the obstacles that Lopez Graça's music encountered during the regime, but of sure modernity sealed by a very personal style.
Admission is free.
