      Description hide

      This is the 3rd record of this amazing string trio made of Portuguese guitar (Fado symbol), classical guitar and contrabass.

      Following "Matéria" (that won the Carlos Paredes 2015 National Award) and "Lisboa" (that was nominated in the best record category by the Portuguese Authors Society Awards in 2017) work that includes in their repertoire Lisbon’s traditional instrumental music with the trio’s innovative musical arrangements, comes now "Aqui e Ali".

      This work is the continuing growth of a unique and own personal language, where the trio, along with their original themes, visit their musical references, such as Portuguese musicians Bernardo Sassetti, Pedro Caldeira Cabral and José Mário Branco.

      In this new work, for the first time, LST Lisboa String Trio are recording with voices, in this case, with Basque singer Maria Berasarte (Spain) who presents a magnificent performance of a Federico Garcia Lorca song, and Portuguese singer Cristina Branco, who sings a beautiful song, alluring to fado.

      “Aqui e Ali” reinforces the delicate point of balance between the several universes of its components, in a surprising language and a strong and original identity. In it we can find references to European Jazz, World Music, Fado and Classical Music

      Biography

      LST – Lisboa String Trio is a Portuguese trio composed by José Peixoto (classical guitar), Bernardo Couto (Portuguese guitar) and Carlos Barretto (contrabass).

      These three artists have been together since 2013. They debuted their first record “Matéria” in 2014, winning the “Carlos Paredes” Award by Vila Franca de Xira’s Town Hall.

      In 2016, the trio released their second album “Lisboa” and presented it not only around the country, but also in international festivals. “Lisboa” was nominated to “Best Record – 2017 Authors” by the Portuguese Society of Authors.

      The LST Lisboa String Trio are:

      José Peixoto – An amazing guitar player, José Peixoto was part of Portuguese group Madredeus. He also recorded more than 20 records in its own name, and played with major Portuguese artists such as Maria João, Mário Laginha, Carlos Bica, José Mário Branco, or Pedro Caldeira Cabral.

      Bernardo Couto – Studied with major Portuguese guitar players such as Carlos Gonçalves, Paulo Parreira and Pedro Caldeira Cabral. He started playing in 2001 and has been playing with fado singers such as António Zambujo, Cristina Branco, Ana Moura, Camané or Raquel Tavares.

      Carlos Barretto – Is one of the great names of the Portuguese jazz scene, having played his contrabass with Lee Konitz, Ricardo Toscano, Brad Meldhau or Bernardo Sassetti.

      Among several concerts, their presence in festivals such as “Festival Internacional de Guitarra de Santo Tirso”, “Música de Leiria”, “Bons Sons” and “Festival F”, Caminhos Médio Tejo, Sons do Património – Área Metropolitana do Porto, are huge highlights, among many other guitar festivals on a national scale. It is also worth mentioning their special performance at “Festival Música no Rio – Os Outros Sons Do Fluviário” that connected LST’s versatility with Cristina Branco’s voice sweetness.

      In 2019 the trio also performed in CCB – Centro Cultural de Belém where they presented some themes of their new album, and performed with an especial presentation from Basque singer Maria Berasarte.

      The performances of singers María Berasarte (Spain) and Cristina Branco (Portugal) at LST – Lisboa String Trio concerts are well known.

      LST – Lisboa String Trio has also performed in several known festivals and in countries such as Spain, Morocco or Tunisia.

      Their repertoire includes traditional music and original themes, with jamming sounds, in rich and appealing sounds. They bring a different feeling to the Fado, as well as another approach to its sounds.

      The trio will soon be releasing their 3rd album, "Aqui e Ali". This is the continuing growth of a unique and own personal language, where the trio, along with their original themes, visit their musical references, such as Portuguese musicians Bernardo Sassetti, Pedro Caldeira Cabral and José Mário Branco. In this new work, for the first time, LST Lisboa String Trio are recording with voices, in this case, with two Maria Berasarte who presents a magnificent performance of a Federico Garcia Lorca song, and Cristina Branco, who sings a beautiful song, alluring to fado.

      “Aqui e Ali” reinforces the delicate point of balance between the several universes of its components, in a surprising language and a strong and original identity. In it we can find references to European Jazz, World Music, Fado and Classical Music. This 3rd work of the trio will be released not only in Portugal, but also in Germany!
