Macao International Music Festival (MIMF) is ushering in its 30th anniversary. This year, the first Artistic Director of MIMF, Adriano Jordão, an eminent Portuguese pianist, will re-visit Macao to present a wonderful recital featuring classic repertoires by German and Austrian composers: Haydn’s Piano Sonata No. 48 in C Major exemplifies the delicate music of the late 18th century as well as the personality of the composer; Beethoven’s Variations on “God Save the King” in his arrangement of the British anthem, reflects Beethoven’s liking and exceptional skills in variations; and Schumann’s Kreisleriana and Arabesque are regarded as the masterpieces of the quintessential Romantic composer. Besides, Adriano Jordão will perform Five Preludes composed by the 20th century’s Portuguese composer Armando José Fernandes in distinct neo-classical style.
