|Marcos Portugal's Lithography|
|13 March 2012|
In a month which celebrates the 250 years of Marcos Portugal's birthday (1762-1830) the Museum of Music remembers the great composer showing his most famous portrait.
To illustrate the piece of the month the best is to listen to Marcos Portugal's music, in this case a ''modinha'' composed in 1793 ''Cuidados Tristes Cuidados'' dedicated to the Queen Carlota Joaquina. This version is performed by Isabel Alcobia and the harpsichordist Mário Marques Trilha. The video was recorded at the Aveiros' Museum not being the Museum of Music's responsibility.
