Van de weemoed en de troost

From sadness and consolation

The Nederlands Blazers Ensemble presents a program fully dedicated to Portuguese music. With acclaimed fado singer Ana Moura and guitarist Bernardo Couto. The music is composed and arranged by Rafael Fraga, Luís Soldado and Guillermo Lago, among others, and recalls also late composers such as Zeca Afonso, Júlio de Sousa or Artur Paredes.

Rafael Fraga contributed with an adaptation of Lamento, a piece premiered in 2010 and arrangements of Se voaras mais ao perto (Zeca Afonso), Fado das águas (Mário Raínho/Alfredo Marceneiro), Fado vestido de fado (Fernando Maurício, Mário Raínho / Trad.) and Aguarda-te ao chegar (Carlos Viana/ Cristina Viana).
