The history of the town of Tavira is presented in a series of scenes combining present day photographs and Peter´s imagined scenes from the past. The narrator of this story is a Portuguese podengo, Pongo. Peter will repeat his presentation on the following evening in Lagoa.
The first concert in our annual series will take place on Sunday 16th October at 16:00 at Quintinha da Música. We shall welcome back Portuguese pianist Vasco Dantas, who also opened our season in 2021. Vasco will present a programme devoted to water and wine, featuring pieces by Debussy, Ravel, Rachmaninov, Gershwin and Wagner and there will be opportunities for wine tasting as a part of the event.
