Description

An exhibition about the great pianist, Maria da Graça Amado da Cunha, who was renowned for her defence and promotion of Portuguese music, which tells the story of this extraordinary artist who, from an early age, captured the attention of such figures as José Viana da Mota, Luís de Freitas Branco, Francine Benoit and Fernando Lopes-Graça.
A documentary exhibition that is based on the estate donated by her family that was incorporated in the Museum of Portuguese Music in 2011. Research around this collection was carried out in partnership with INET-md (Institute of Ethnomusicology - Centre for Studies in Music and Dance) and CESEM (Centre for the Study of Sociology and Musical Aesthetics).

The programme includes guided tours, concerts and conferences.
