 BRUNO MONTEIRO, VIOLIN; NUNO MARQUES, PIANO

 Monday, April 8, 2019, 7:30pm

Heralded by the daily Público as “one of Portugal´s premier violinists” and by the weekly Expresso as “one of today´s most renowned Portuguese musicians”, Bruno Monteiro is internationally recognized as a distinguished violinist of his generation. Fanfare Magazine describes him as having a “burnished golden tone” and Strad states that his “generous vibrato produces radiant colors”. MusicWeb International refers to interpretations that have a “vitality and an imagination that are looking unequivocally to the future” and that reach an “almost ideal balance between the expressive and the intellectual”. Gramophone praises his “unfailing assurance and eloquence” and Strings Magazine summarizes that he is “deserving of a much larger slice of the limelight on the world stage.” Award-winning Portuguese pianist Nuno Marques is developing his performing career and directs Porto Pianofest, an international piano fetial in Porto, Portugual,  of which he is the founder and artistic director.  He is one of the most sought-after Portuguese pianists of his generation.  A versatile musician,  he is equally comfortable playing solo, chamber music or collaborating artistically with other forms of expression. Program: Brahms, Franck, Branco, Barbosa, Saint-Saëns. Portuguese buffet/wine. $115.
