Like a large river, Baroque music is a confluence of many tributaries that vary in colour, taste and smell. Portuguese Baroque is precisely such an amalgam of folk and artificial music, of musical influences from all over Europe and overseas. Tururu farara, the programme by the Lisabon ensemble Sete Lágrimas, will play out the great variety of this music in a riveting, unique way, also thanks to their penchant for improvization. The baroque Troja Chateau will throb in unison since the Austrian Emperor Leopold I, celebrated in the mural of the concert hall, had a Portuguese great-grandmother.
