About

Portuguese composer Vasco Mendonça (b. 1977) regards this portrait album as a letter to himself – written over time and with different chapters that throw light on his long-standing obsessions with drama, ritual and precision mechanism. Group Together, Avoid Speech highlights the string and woodwind principals of the wonderful Gulbenkian Orchestra to create ‘a Baroque concerto grosso on steroids’, while Unanswerable Light is a memorial to a friend and a meditation on fury and loss. The piano concerto Step Right Up is ‘a ritual celebration between the most incredible music box – the orchestra – and the most beautiful sound machine – the piano.’
