The FIMA 2019 – Algarve Classical Festival presents the concert "My Algarve - Music inspired by tha nation". The inspiration for this programme came from the poem "O meu Algarve" (My Algarve) written by João Lúcio, a modernist poet from Olhão. This concert will include a world premiere of the homonymous work for voice and orchestra composed by Luís Soldado, a piece commissioned by the Orquestra Clássica do Sul especially for the FIMA 2019, which will be interpreted by the renowned Portuguese soprano Dora Rodrigues. The programme will be completed with works of Portuguese inspiration, with a highlight to the brilliant “Divertimento nº 1” by Joly Braga Santos, one of the greatest modern Portuguese composers, and whose music is imbued with a strong nationalistic character - a kind of "imaginary folklore".
