AMÁLIA, WHO GAVE YOU THE FATE THAT WAS ALREADY YOURS...
AMÁLIA, who gave you the fate that was already yours...
Amália's fate is to be our eternal inspiration. In this concert there is a part that is especially dear to me: the 6 songs and poems that were made to offer Amália after she left us.
Xaile de Silêncio, for example, was created by Mário Cláudio on the same day of her death.
I think these offerings are a poetic idea and more interesting than repeating ad eternum the Amalian repertoire that no one will sing like her.
These longings, in a way, are the biography of Amália that continues to be written.
