This volume brings together academic articles and texts published on the website of pianist and teacher José Eduardo Martins since 1992. The subjects cover Portuguese music from the Baroque to the present day, with an emphasis upon Carlos Seixas, Francisco de Lacerda, Fernando Lopes-Graça and Jorge Peixinho. It also deals with musical interpretation and analysis, piano music, aspects of Portuguese musical life, and important figures from music in Portugal whom the pianist knew throughout his 50 years of visiting Portuguese towns and villages to give recitals and lectures. Martins also comments on his experiences with the extensive Portuguese piano repertoire, as many of the works presented were played for the first time by him. These texts were published in France, Portugal and Brazil.
