LISBOA COLORS

LISBON GUITAR QUARTET & TERESA MACEDO

 

Introduction

 

“Cor de Lisboa” is the latest work of the Lisbon Guitar Quartet (“Quarteto de Guitarras de Lisboa – QGLx”). After having the first record for this formation, the “QGLx” continues its defence for the repertoire of Portuguese nationality authors. In this new work they invite the singer (and actress) Teresa Macedo to join her voice to the characteristic sonority of the guitar quartet. The unpublished themes composition is in charge of the Quartet itself, and the lyrics are words used by some Portuguese poets (Samuel Quedas, António Rodrigues and José V. da Silva), to define the portuguese sentiment and spirit. The works of the composers (and poets) José Afonso and Fausto Bordalo Dias are also embraced with new arrangements of “QLGx” itself. Thus, a new musical colour arises where Teresa’s delicate and crystalline voice presents captivating melodies accompanied by a fresh and innovative texture of a quartet of guitars. The musical definition, something so sought after nowadays, is diffuse and hard to define as something unique or we would not be talking about the Lisbon Color (“Cor de Lisboa”).
