We have heard varied and contrasting voices placed in the cinematic chorus, dialogues that testify to the current challenges facing the architecture of the house: adaptation to new features, health, sustainability, ”says Camões’ communiqué.

With regard to the housing projects presented, three questions arise: “Will the house, turned into a workplace, change to a different name? How do you live / work in these houses? What is it like to live and work during a pandemic? ”

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
