O Som da Saudade - A Cítara Portuguesa
31 May, 2019 to 29 September, 2019
A fascinating journey through the history of the Portuguese guitar, from the 18th century to the present.
An instrument with a particular sound and with unique expressive resources that allow it to interpret repertoires of musical areas as distinct as Fado, Ancient Music, World Music or Jazz, the Portuguese guitar is the protagonist of this exhibition that brings together more than 50 instruments from public collections and private, as well as accessories and small decorative pieces.
The Fado Museum thanks the collectors and institutions that made pieces of its collection available: Pedro Caldeira Cabral, André Boita, Fernando Teixeira Camelo and Miguel Teixeira Camelo, Sculptor José Aurélio, Carlos Machado Museum, Lisbon Museum, National Museum of Ethnology, National Museum of Music and Museum of Portuguese Music - Casa Verdades de Faria.
Curator: Pedro Caldeira Cabral
