Conductors Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Grupo de Música Contemporanea de Lisboa has been commissioning music from Portuguese composers since 2001. Some 40 commissioned works later, the ensemble has embarked on a project of recording this music and this, its first volume offers the listener a window on contemporary music in Portugal.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
The Grupo de Musica Contemporanea de Lisboa's two-disc release adds a few more instruments to vocal-centric works that range from concert electronics-driven atmospheres that tinkle and transform to subtle. Clotilde Rosa's O Caminho de Orfeu is filled with motives ascending to and descending from the extended registers of instruments. The group's use of extended techniques is judicious. The opening multiphonic in the clarinet in I of Dor e Amor by Carlos Marecos is a prime example of this.
