  • Musician and researcher, Pedro Caldeira Cabral has been recovering musical manuscripts with old pieces from the repertoire of the Portuguese zither, many by unknown authors and dating from the end of the 18th to the beginning of the 20th centuries. The music he found is a mixture of genres: fado de salão, the dances of fofa, fandango, sarambeque, waltz, mazurka, maxixe or chula. The Portuguese zither has been stirring a growing interest among listeners who are keen to enjoy other musical genres other than the more traditional ones linked to this instrument, and its presentation in the context of classical and popular music festivals is more and more frequent. Pedro Caldeira Cabral has been contributing to the creation of a new extended soloist repertoire, consisting of original compositions and transcriptions of musical pieces from the past.
