Alexandre Delgado was a pupil of Joly Braga Santos and has a keen sense of his compositional lineage, as he has, indeed, of the breadth of Portuguese culture as a whole. His Trio Camoniano, written in 2017, originated as a sequence of songs to sonnets by the great Portuguese poet Luís de Camões, for voice and piano trio, in 2013, commissioned by the Performa Ensemble. The composer notes that the idea was to connect the worlds of classical music and fado, and, for lack of familiarity with the latter, he initially considered refusing, but then decided to go ahead, surprising himself with the fado-like elements that do in fact appear in the music.
