What is "pessoa" project?

This project consists of recording a cd entirely dedicated to Portuguese music written for piano trio. The pessoa trio is the project’s promoter and consists of João Crisóstomo (piano), Otto Pereira (violin) and Raquel Reis (cello). The pessoa trio is a group of young and open-minded musicians, who identify themselves with various musical styles beyond the world of classical music. The “pessoa” project is a portrait of the pessoa trioexploring works of very different kinds of Portuguese music to which the trio feels connected. The pessoa trio will record works by António Fragoso (composer of the early twentieth century), Vasco Mendonça (contemporary composer) and Mário Laginha (pianist and composer, jazz man). By the latter, the trio will record the premiere of a piece composed specifically for this project. Furthermore, the trio will record arrangements of Portuguese popular music, composed by the musicians of the group themselves. The project will also count on the participation of musicians such as Pedro Jóia (guitarrist) and Ricardo Ribeiro (fado singer), both as musicians and arrangers.

This crowdfunding campaign aims to cover expenses with sound engineering and recording equipment, music production, piano transporting, graphic design, photography and printing cds.

The cd will be recorded in early August and released in the Autumn, at which point the rewards will be sent.

Composers and Pieces 

This project consists in recording Portuguese music written for piano trio from the early twentieth century to the present day. As a representative of Portuguese music written before the XXI century, the pessoa trio chose the "Piano Trio in C# minor”, by António Fragoso (1897-1918). Written in 1916, this trio is one of the greatest works written by the composer and has a very romantic and contemplative style.The pessoa trio will also record the work "Drives" by Vasco Mendonça, one of the most representative composers of the current generation of Portuguese musicians: "Mendonça is a genuine artist, whose work displays a high level of craftsmanship and a fine aural imagination" (George Banjamin). It is a piece written as a young composer, and not yet recorded on cd. In premiere, the pessoa trio will record a piece by Mário Laginha recently composed for this project. Finally, the pessoa trio will create its own arrangements, with the goal of bringing together the worlds of popular music and classical music. The pessoa trio seeks to increase the value given to their roots and democratize classical music. The pessoa trio shall be joined the Portuguese fado singer Ricardo Ribeiro and by the Portuguese guitarist Pedro Jóia.

About the author

The pessoa trio is a violin, cello and piano trio and it was born from the common passion of it's musicians for chamber music. The main goal of the pessoa trio is sharing with the public this great music and bringing it to a wider and more varied audience, not confining it to the halls of traditional venues. The pessoa trio has performed in concerts in the Music Season of the Azores in 2010, having also played in Lisbon and being distinguished with a honorable mention at the International Chamber Music Competition in Alcobaça. Aiming to think the piano trio in the light of our days, the pessoa trio would like to reflect about the potential of this genre that could perhaps exceed the boundaries of classical music, providing new approaches and new languages.
