The music of (flut)uações invites the listener to savor ever-changing combinations of sonorities of flutes, percussion, cello, and electronics. The title (flut)uações—a fusion of two similar words of different linguistic provenance: “flute” and “flutuções” (“fluctuations” in Portuguese)—signifies a presence of one instrument, the flute, emancipating itself to reverberate through others, in a cyclical and spontaneous conversation.
"LAB" Ricardo Pinheiro & MIguel Amado (2020)

Music by Paulo Amorim
Complete Guitar Works by Paulo Amorim
The choice of name for this record reflects the author's compositional path throughout his career: a relatively well-known musician in his home country of Portugal with a "bag of compositions" never played by other but which, little by little, have been capturing the interest of fellow musicians and critics alike. These "Complete Works for Solo Guitar" date from 1997 to 2010.
"Página Esquecida" (2010)
Entirely dedicated to Portuguese music of the 20th century, in the instrumentation of cello and piano as well as cello solo, this double CD sets itself the task of presenting this repertoire and disseminating it as widely as possible. When selecting the pieces, care was therefore taken to bring together only the best quality (according to the artists' assessment) in this field. The ambition of the two musicians is to free Portuguese music from the label of the "forgotten side" (Página Esquecida) within the current international music world.
