Under the aegis of the Great Lisbon Earthquake, we are brought a brief cycle of songs: Tremor. Nuno Côrte-Real takes a historic event with intellectual, philosophical and social repercussions at the world level, and proposes a journey through time. Leaving from contemporary Lisbon and travelling through the imaginary of the 1755 earthquake, the map that guides us is the poetry of Pedro Mexia. These are songs designed for a female voice, the soprano Bárbara Barradas, who gives both a body and a voice to Lisbon as it shakes and undulates to the greater and lesser tremors of the earth, attempting to cope with the devastation that these ripples may bring.

Nuno Côrte-Real (born 1971) has been working as a composer and conductor for more than twenty years and is one of the most important figures of Portuguese contemporary music. From the beginning, he showed great independence, ignoring the prevailing musical currents and established opinions. The plurality and syncretism that characterize his works represent an open and straightforward approach to music that breaks with the clichés, aesthetic determinism and elitism of the contemporary music world. Also characteristic of his work is a preference for stylistic symbiosis, especially through the use of elements from other musical traditions such as jazz and pop music.

Côrte-Real seeks to liberate contemporary music from its closedness and to revitalize it by bringing it closer to other sonic universes. His catalog includes several hybrid or symbiotic works whose roots come from other musical traditions. Examples include the two volumes of Novíssimo Cancioneiro (“Cante”, Odreadek, 2019), which are based on Portuguese folk songs; the song cycle Agora muda tudo (Odradek, 2019), written for jazz singer Maria João; and Time Stands Still (Artway, 2020), an interesting recreation of the songs of John Dowland.
