Os Músicos do Tejo is a new project in the field of early music, founded and directed by Marcos Magalhães and Marta Araújo, with the aim of consolidating current achievements in Portugal in the use of period instruments and in Portuguese baroque repertoire. Os Músicos do Tejo gave their first performance in Setúbal in December 2005, and since then have performed a wide variety of programmes, from Portuguese sacred music at the León Organ Festival, to a Handel programme in Brest, baroque vocal music in Goa and Sementes do Fado (Seeds of Fado), the baroque origins of the genre, in Paris, Brest, Prague, Lisbon and Sastamala in Finland. In 2010 they gave the first performance in Portugal of Pergolesiʼs Lo frate nnamurato and in 2011 of the opera-ballet Le Carnaval et la Folie by AC Destouches. Recordings by the ensemble include Sementes do Fado, with Ana Quintans and Ricardo Rocha, and As Árias de Luísa Todi, with soprano Joana Seara, featuring the repertoire sung by “La Todi”, a famous Portuguese prima donna from the eighteenth century. Os Músicos do Tejo have already performed La Spinalba 11 times, in Lisbon (at the CCB), Viseu, Azores and Vigo in Spain.
