Caravelas Newsletter: You have just published
the book “Olhares sobre a música em Portugal
no século XIX: ópera, virtuosismo e música
doméstica”. Is there anything you would like to
point out about it?
Luísa Cymbron: It is a collection of articles that
I have published in the last twelve years. Some
of them came out in foreign publications, others
in periodicals with only limited dissemination
and, for this reason, they were difficult for the
Portuguese-speaking public to gain access to. It
seemed to me to be a good idea therefore to
bring them together in a volume, with the texts
revised, or in some cases, rewritten.
In terms of their theme, these articles cast an eye
over music in Portugal in the 19th century taken
from different angles, but maintaining as a
central element, and to a certain extent as a
unifying factor, the theatre. This is because
originally my interest was centred on Portuguese
composers who had written operas and only later
extended to virtuoso practices and domestic
music. The rediscovery of the works of these
composers has to a large extent determined the
way my academic output has come about and
explains why this volume includes so many
monographic studies on operas. However, the
need to comprehend and contextualise – to
understand how, on the basis of what models, for
what kinds of performance practices, patrons and
publics they were written – led me to discover
and and work on a set of other phenomena that
range from the system of production to the forms
of circulation of the repertoire and to its
reception, taking in the relations between the
prime movers of Portuguese musical and
operatic circles and the political, intellectual and
social circles within which they existed.
However, given that the book is a jigsaw of
texts, I think that it is up to each reader to chart
their own path of discovery among the themes
C. N.: What role did your native Azores play in
this work?
L. C.: In actual fact, there are two articles on
music on the island of São Miguel (Azores), but
they arose purely by chance. Although I have a
deep emotional link with my birthplace and am
interested in its history, I have never felt that this
in any way tied my academic work. However, it
gave me particular pleasure to write these texts,
because they led me to come to an understanding
of how phenomena in the musical life of a small
island in the middle of the Atlantic, easily
reduced to no more than a petite histoire,
actually formed part of and were connected with
central issues concerning music in Portugal and
C. N.: The preface to the book leads us to expect
publication of your research concerning Brazil.
Have you already begun this project? Could
research into the musical interconnections
between Brazil and Portugal constitute a field for
L. C.: For many years I have felt that the history
of music in Portugal in the 19th century cannot
really be separated from that in Brazil. As well
as ties coming from the colonial period, the
shared language, the intense migratory flows and
the continuous circulation of artists and
intellectuals throughout the century created a
reality that has to be seen together, though with
differing degrees of intensity, bearing in mind
the phenomena being examined and regional
differences. My research on Brazil related to the
violinist and composer Francisco de Sá Noronha
(1820-1881), who I began to work on many
years ago, and who spent his entire life
circulating between the two shores of the
Atlantic. My work on him has been intermittent,
but I am currently writing on his late operettas,
first performed in Rio de Janeiro in 1880, in
collaboration with Artur Azevedo. One of my
Page 6
Study Group for the History of Luso-Brazilian Music
projects, in the not too distant future, should be
to publish a work on this composer, who even if
not a leading figure, nevertheless encapsulates
many of the central questions concerning
musical relations between Portugal and Brazil in
the 19th century.
C. N.: What differences do you note between
working conditions (institutional and academic)
between historical musicology in Portugal and in
L. C.: It is difficult for me to reply because I
don’t know the situation in Brazil very well (and
indeed it must be very variable, given the size of
the country). Anyway, from what I gathered in
2011 – the only opportunity I have had to visit –
and following what goes on through some who
are abroad, I would say that one can sense
considerable dynamism and the existence of a
policy of investment in research which will
naturally create better working conditions. In
Portugal, after a period of considerable
expansion over the past fifteen years, in which
finally we have had proper conditions, we are
now at a particularly difficult moment. We will
have to make the most of the resources and
critical mass that we have created. In any case, in
an era of globalisation and with the existence of
an ever greater number of documents available
digitally, the difficulties of access to information
and the academic isolation that a generation like
mine knew, will never be the same. And we can
feel this from day to day, when we sit down at
the computer to work and we come across more
and more new sources, new literature, etc.
C. N.: Do you think that Luso-Brazilian
musicology has a future?
L. C.: I believe that everything has a future so
long as people are prepared to make it happen.
And, in the case of Luso-Brazilian musicology, it
seems obvious to me that not only is it an area
with great potential, but we all have an interest in
making dialogue ever more fruitful. What is
necessary is to continue to work methodically,
without losing sight of what others are doing,
and I have no doubt that positive results will
ensue. The Caravelas Study Group has been
doing excellent work.
