Meanwhile, the Spanish government will ask the country’s parliament for a month’s extension to a state of emergency in the country, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced.

“The Spanish government will ask Parliament for a new extension to the state of emergency, which will have different characteristics, with respect to the previous one, because the situation in Spain has changed,” Sanchez said. “To begin with, this aims to be the last [extension to the] emergencies and to cover, until the end of the escalation, and because of that we will ask parliament that instead of 15 days, that’s about a month. “

The prime minister said with this, that the right of free circulation would remain “limited” for a few more weeks and that certain areas could get out of an emergency earlier than others.

Sanchez also said that easing of the gradual restrictions would take place in half the country until the start of the summer, while the rest of the countries would finish one or two weeks afterwards, if there were no increase in the number of cases.

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.
