Recording project – Choral works of Simão Barreto
12th July 2014
The Lisbon Chamber Choir (LCC), sponsored by the Assessoria para a Sociedade Civil of the East Timor Democratic Republic, is currently developing a recording project of the choral works of Maestro Simão Barreto, one of the most respected and well-known East Timorese composers.
Since its foundation over 35 years ago, the LCC has clearly assumed the role of Lusophony embassador throughout the world, often including portuguese and its brother-countries’ musical repertoires in its concerts. In this context, the works of the East Timorese composer Simão Barreto have been performed in concert quite a few times, with whom the LCC has had a close cooperation relationship started many years ago.
In a time where the cultural identity and the heritage preservation are seen internationally as very important, this project is a great opportunity for the affirmation of the East Timorese culture, by recording the choral works of this highly regarded composer.
