Portuguese composer Luís Tinoco’s works are “as engrossing as they are entertaining” (Musical Opinion), and these première recordings represent some of the most exciting new orchestral work to appear in recent years.

I know it’s good when it makes my knees weak.”


Review By Percorsi Musicali,July 2013

Luìs Tinoco (1969) è un compositore portoghese di cui si conoscevano discograficamente alcuni lavori da camera, sparsi tra raccolte compilative sui compositori portoghesi tra cui dei quintetti ai fiati (soprattutto “Light - distance,O curso das aguas” e “Short cuts” per 4 sassofoni), un quartetto d’archi in stile contemporaneo (“Quarteto” performato dagli Arditti String quartet) e una composizione per marimba, “Mind the gap”.
