The latest step by step Government relaxation of lockdown restrictions is giving us the opportunity to start cultural events as of April 19th, 2021. So….

 We can have live music again at Os Agostos !!

 Constantin Sandu has kindly agreed to change his dates until after the 19th April. So, he will come to us for Matinee and Evening performances on the following dates:

Tuesday, April 20th and Thursday, April 22nd, 2021

Constantin Sandu

He is bringing a programme of music by Mozart, Beethoven (Sonatas, the Tempest and Waldstein) and by Liszt, and an interesting piece by the Romanian composer Constaninescu.

 

And SURPRISE SURPRISE  we shall have 2 more piano recitals in April!

Unfortunatelythe Italian pianist, Leonardo Pierdomenico, planned for the end of April recitals is detained by quarantine issues and cannot come to us at this time, so……we  have been lucky to find on this short notice a wonderful Portuguese pianist to step in.

Marta Menezes will come from Lisbon and play for the Amigos de Música for the first time.

Tuesday, April 27th and Thursday, April 29th,

In her varied programmes for Matinee and Evening concerts, this wonderful young artist has included works by Portuguese composers – Marta   Menezes is an active performer of Portuguese music, having  commissioned and premiered several works, a few of which were dedicated to her.  She also finished her doctoral thesis on works for Piano and Orchestra by Portuguese composers. She will be playing works by Beethoven, Chopin, Vianna da Motta, Liszt, Artur Santos and Albeniz.

 

Despite the Covid situation we hold concerts where possible under the regulations. Information about concerts may change! So please keep checking the website for information.

For our more concert information click on ‘Forthcoming concerts’ on the right. For all this season’s concerts see Concert Programme, 2020-21

There really is something for everyone – as you will discover  if you come and experience the wonder of live music with us in our unique “home”, Monte Os Agostos; nestling in the hills above Sta. Barbara de Nexe and near Bordeira.

Guests and non-members are welcome at our concerts and a contribution towards expenses of €25 per person is requested.

Capacity at Os Agostos is limited, which makes Booking important. Please send an e-mail to: reservasconcertos@gmail.com 

Prepayment will be required to avoid the need for check-in.

Arranging our concerts is a considerable task for which we rely heavily on the enthusiasm, dedication (and donations) of our members and upon the co-operation and support of our venue as well as our providers of artist accommodation.We thank our Business Sponsors, Quinta Properties aka QP Savills whose generosity and continued financial support is hugely essential for our success.
