Lisboa Colors is the latest work of the Lisbon Guitar Quartet (Quarteto de Guitarras de Lisboa QGLx). After having the first record for this formation, the QGLx continues its defense for the repertoire of Portuguese composers. In this new work they invite the singer (and actress) Teresa Macedo to join her voice to the characteristic sonority of the guitar quartet. The unpublished themes composition is arranged by the Quartet itself, and the lyrics are words used by some Portuguese poets (Samuel Quedas, António Rodrigues and José V. da Silva), to define the Portuguese sentiment and spirit. The works of the composers (and poets) José Afonso and Fausto Bordalo Dias are also embraced with new arrangements by QLGx itself. Thus, a new musical color arises where Teresas delicate and crystalline voice presents captivating melodies accompanied by a fresh and innovative texture of a quartet of guitars. The musical definition, something so sought after nowadays, is diffuse and hard to define. A beautiful collection.
