Marcelo knows how to talk to 212 million Brazilians



Marcelo knows how to talk to 212 million Brazilians

Currently, 280 million people will speak Portuguese, Luis Faro Ramos, the then president of Instituto Camões, dared to reply in an interview I gave him last year under the pretext of first celebrating May 5 as World Portuguese Language Day. And while he warned of forecasts of exponential growth in the number of Portuguese speakers in Africa throughout the 21st century, he did not fail to emphasize how much Brazil, with 212 million inhabitants in this language, born in the corner of the Iberian Peninsula that stretches with caravels, will weigh. Today Luis Faro Ramos is the Ambassador to Brasilia and has consistently reaffirmed and reaffirmed that “Brazil is the flagship of the Portuguese language” and that efforts to promote the language, perhaps even the official language of the United Nations, are under way. through close cooperation between the two countries, also of course with the participation of all other members of the CPLP, the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries.

The importance that Portugal attaches to the opening this Saturday of the Portuguese Language Museum in São Paulo, as well as the cultural dimension of the 2022 celebration of Brazil’s bicentennial of independence (which will include Portugal as the host country for the Bienal do Livro de São Paulo) show that it is an area of ​​excellence for strengthening bilateral relations. The success of Portuguese writers across the Atlantic and Brazilians here is proof of this, and there are many names to add to the classics of Es and Machado de Assis. It is also touching that one of the most emblematic symbols of Portugal in Brazil is the work of the post-crisis emigration from Ipiranga – the Royal Portuguese Reading Office located in Rio de Janeiro and one of the most beautiful libraries in the world.

And the language will certainly make possible the development of other common interests, starting with the economy, and I go back to Ambassador Luis Faro Ramos, who still recently arrived in Brasilia, in an interview with Folla de São Paulo said that “we are the representatives of Brazil in the European Union”, referring to the MERCOSUR-EU agreement.

In the same influential newspaper in Brazil, in his author’s article a few days ago, the Portuguese Foreign Minister, in theory speaking only of culture, spoke even more thoroughly: “Cooperation between the Portuguese and Brazilian peoples can be like a tree. With a sturdy trunk that is a common language. With its branches, which are areas of communication and action. With spectacular flowers and delicious fruits, these are the results we produce and harvest, ”wrote Augusto Santos Silva.

Congratulations, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa. During his trip to Brazil, he attended the opening of the museum with former presidents Fernando Henrique Cardoso and Michel Temer, and on Monday he will meet in Brasilia with President Jair Bolsonaro. Before that, he also met with Lula da Silva, another former president of Brazil.

For Portugal, Brazil will always be a priority. Our president made this very obvious, and the Brazilians easily understand his actions, and even more so his words. Diplomatic, in good Portuguese.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

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

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“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.
