3º FARO INTERNATIONAL BAROQUE MUSIC FESTIVAL - 2nd April | 6.00 pm
Works by Francisco António de Almeida, Carlos Seixas, António Pereira da Costa and David Peres.
“Triumph of Portuguese Baroque Music” is a programme that offers a glimpse into the extraordinary musical repertoires of the Baroque period in Portugal, when the Johannine kingdom adopted the aesthetic models in vogue at the time in Rome and Naples. The new compositional influences combined with the Portuguese polyphonic tradition produces a unique form of the Baroque.

Sue Parker shares her time between homes in Wales and the Algarve and travels, mainly in Europe, to see, photograph and learn more about wild terrestrial orchids.
