The Portuguese musicology of the present day confirms to us that António Fragoso was one of the composers that more marked the music in the principles of century XX. And also abroad he is increasingly recognized as a Portuguese composer of great value. His works are more and more to be played not only by the Portuguese, but also by international musicians.
For this reason, the University of Coimbra and the António Fragoso Association challenge the High Schools, Conservatories and all Music Schools of Portugal to join the “Celebrations of the Centenary of António Fragoso’s Death” from October 2017 to October 2018 and consider The school year as the year of ANTÓNIO FRAGOSO.
Let us all, then, make a deep homage to this “Genius made Saudade”.
