Quintet "A Luz"

Eleven years after the recording of my CD "Laura" I felt the time would be right to record a new CD with this instrumentation for which I wrote this music. Each composition is the direct result of a particular motivating element.

"A Luz" (The Light) reflects a form of inner illumination brought by the experiences of time and has been described by critic M J Veloso as a "collection of original compositions of excellent melodic and harmonic contour" (in Diário de Noticias)

In concert, the Quintet "A Luz" plays not only repertoire from the CD but also new and old compositions many of which have been recorded on some of my previous albums.

This performance is characterized by a wide variety of sound atmospheres full of poetic energy.

The Quintet features:

Laurent Filipe (trumpet and flugelhorn),
Mário Delgado (guitars), Rodrigo Gonçalves (piano),
Nelson Cascais (bass), Alexandre Frazão (drums)
