«Freedoms is a program that jumps out of a challenge, at a time when many of us forget what freedom is and its limits, what it implies in all our lives and moments. The 25th of April 1974 is the most recent date in the history of Portugal, of the most recent freedom of the country, but, because the concept is much broader, we decided to make a bridge and a merger at various levels. If, on the one hand, we have the compelling “E After Goodbye”, or “Philosopher's Stone”, we will also have a “Bella Ciao” or a “Blowing In The Wind” around the world. We have thus merged several authors, from Zeca Afonso to Paulo de Carvalho, Manuel Freire, Bob Dylan, John Lennon or Bob Marley, among others. All gathered here in their views on freedom, or on the various freedoms ».
The chamber describes that “the orchestrations for this program come from several selected orchestrators, from as many other countries as the United Kingdom, Italy, the United States of America, Germany or Iceland. Keeping jazz as a universal and background language, we will be able to listen to the reading of each one of them on the selected musical themes, while respecting what they are. A huge challenge, maintaining all artistic freedoms ».
«To shape this whole jazz-freedom fusion, were it not for jazz per si also that, we join two national voices: if Ana Laíns does not need great presentations, and will give voice to those that are national themes, already the emerging one, Ana “Cherry” Caldeira gives her voice to international themes. Duets are, of course, inevitable, and will also mark this program. Freedoms! ». finalizes the autarchy.
