KÜNSTLER 'A MAGIA DO FADO' 28.01.2023
Wiener Winter - dann träumt man sich auf Reisen ans Meer und zur Sonne und hat gleich die Saudade...
...die Saudade, die auf einzigartige Weise im Portugiesischen Fado wunderbar in unsere Herzen steigt, sich dort tief verankert und nie wieder die Schönheiten Portugals vergessen lässt.
Am 28.Jänner 2023 kommt einer der ganz großen Fadomusiker zu uns nach Wien:
JORGE FERNANDO begleitet seine Großvater schon mit 4 Jahren beim Fado-Singen.
Später trat er mit der weltberühmten Amália Rodrigues auf und produziert unzählige Alben, ab 1982 fast jährlich eines.
Auch auf vielen Festivals spielte er und bekam unzählige Auszeichnungen für seine herausragende Leistungen als Komponist, Musiker, Sänger, Produzent und Fadomeister.
Mit zahlreichen seiner Songkompositionen oder Duette erlangte mancher Fadostern zu unverkennbaren Ruhm. Er ist einer der meistgesungenen Komponisten portugiesischer Musik und mancher Song davon erlangte Weltberühmtheit, wie zum Beispiel "Chuva" von Mariza unverkennbar gesungen oder Liedtexte wie "Para Além da Saudade" interpretiert von Ana Moura und noch viele andere mehr.
Kenner wissen, dass er mit unzähligen großartigen Musikern und Musikerinnen auf der Bühne stand und das Publikum begeisterte. Hier in Wien wird er mit einer sehr außergewöhnlichen Interpretin des Fados, der bekannten portugiesischen Sängerin FÁBIA REBORDãO im wunderschönen Ehrbarsaal auftreten.
Sie gilt einhellig als eine Referenzstimme des Fado Novo. Schon mit 15 Jahren verliebt sie sich in den Fado und sang professionell in typischen Häusern des Fado. Aber sie beweist auf ihrem Entwicklungsweg als Sängerin Vielseitigkeit und ist auch nicht gefeit vor musikalischen Einflüssen des Soul, Bossa Nova, Morna, Blues, Jazz bis hin zur Klassik und Oper. Sie singt seit Jahrzehnten auf großen Konzerten und namenhaften renommierten Festivals.
2011 veröffentlichte sie ihr Debütalbum gemeinsam mit Jorge Fernando und wurde promt von Weltberühmtheiten wie z.B. Mariza, gebeten mit auf ihrer Bühne zu stehen. Nun winkten Auszeichnungen und Anerkennungen, während sie ihren Fado ständig verfeinerte und zu einer einzigartigen, unverkennbaren Kunst weiterentwickelte. Sie präsentierte weitere Alben mit Jorge Fernando und anderen großartigen Künstlern, und entwickelte so ihre eigene Klangidentität, die die Seele des Fado mit anderen musikalischen Referenzen vereint.
Freuen wir uns also auf einen Hochgenuss portugiesischer Weltkultur, einen Abend voller nostalgischer aber auch fröhlicher, hingebungsvoller Saudadelieder!
....und schon wird es uns warm ums Herz und der Winter lässt den Frühling in Aussicht gehen!

To Fábia Rebordão, fado is a way of singing life, a life made of moments full of truth. In fact, to Fábia Rebordão, fado means truth – and, if she’s singing truthfully, she will always be singing fado.
At school, when she was six years old, she was chosen to perform at a Christmas Party and, immediately, music became her focus and her calling. Spoons were used as microphones and glass windows were the perfect instrument to throw back her voice. At night, she used to close her eyes and get carried away by imaginary ovations, the perfect heading to dreamland. When asked what she wanted to become, the answer was plain and simple: she wanted to sing. One day, a neighbour is imperative when declaring “you have a fado voice”, giving her a challenge: if she’d learn how to sing two fados, he would take her, for the first time, to Tasca do Chico.
The experience is so overwhelming that, in the same night, she sings at several other surrounding fado places. Her life would never be the same: she will be frequent visit to local associations and typical taverns, places where she will discover the true essence of fado. When she’s 14 years old, she’s already singing at Ferreiras but also at Taverna do Embuçado. She didn’t go to college but studied with the highest professors, from Fernando Maurício to Beatriz da Conceição, Celeste Rodrigues or Paquito.
But to Fábia Rebordão music never expired just in fado: after being casted in the musical “My Fair Lady”, directed by Filipe La Féria, when she’s 17 years old, her eagerness to learn makes her take part, in 2003, in “Operação Triunfo”, a TV singing contest. Eclectic, versatile, always curious, she even dives in the acting world, being part of the cast of “O Clube”, a TV drama series.
Breaking free from any kind of ties that might narrow her sight, she becomes interested in all kind of roots music, whether you’re talking about flamenco or blues, jazz or folklore, samba or morna. What matters to her are the rhythms that are born on the streets and give her chills, that exude truth. As fado does. In 2011, her first lyrics, “Quem Em Mim Habita”, written for a music composed by Alfredo Marceneiro, is also the motto for her first record: “A Oitava Cor” isn’t just her debut – it’s also the document where she fully presents herself. Five years later, she returns with “Eu”, the record in which she sings the work of Tozé Brito or Pedro da Silva Martins but also where she becomes even more powerful as a composer. Much more than just a performer, Fábia Rebordão is the author whose words have already been sung by people like Miguel Ramos, Jorge Fernando or Cuca Roseta.
Praises start to pile up: she’s honored with the Amalia Award for Best New Artist, the same recognition given by the highly esteemed weekly newspaper Expresso. At the same time, she starts performing at the most important theaters all over the world, like Carnegie Hall, in New York, or Concertgebouw, in Amsterdam, with a symphonic orchestra directed by award-winning maestro and producer, Vince Mendoza.
Fabia Rebordão’s approach to “Estranha Forma de Vida”, a classic fado from Amália Rodrigues’ repertoire, is revealed in March of 2020, both celebrating her birthday and honoring one of her main influences and she’s one of the singers chosen to perform in the biggest celebration of Amália’s centenary birthday, in July, on the show “Bem-vinda Sejas Amália”. But “Estranha Forma de Vida” is also the first step towards her new album and her biggest challenge ever.
Never has Fábia Rebordão been so self-assured, complete and certain. She’s never been as whole, while uttering timeless words or expressing the stories carried on her own songs – and never has she revealed herself like now. Her comeback is also her most ambitious work, meticulous, full with detail and truth. Her truth as a performer, of course, but most of all as an author. An author that, in her own lyrics and melodies, reveals a unique soul. And when that kind of soul shows up, it can only speak truthfully, the same truth that you will only find in fado – and in Fábia Rebordão.
Jorge Fernando is a musician, fado singer and producer. He is one of the most sung composers of Portuguese music and author of hits such as "Boa noite solidão", "Búzios", "Quem vai ao fado" or "Chuva".
Jorge Fernando da Silva Nunes was born in Lisbon on March 8, 1957.
At the age of four, he already accompanied his grandfather singing fado [Ti Preciosa's husband even accompanied Amália Rodrigues] on the nights in Lisbon. But it was at the age of 16 that he had his first real experience, when he worked with Fernando Maurício, considered the "king" of fado. There he definitely left his footballing career behind, where he reached the junior international.
He was rehearsing in a garage (he was part of the "Futuro" group) and he was told that the singer Fernando Maurício was nearby. I wanted to meet him and once he heard him it was an absolute passion. A little while later Jorge was playing for him.
In the 1970s, he recorded for the Alvorada label the single "Trigueirinha" and another with the themes "Se Me Pedisses Desculpa" and "Semente do Amor".
At the age of 19, he met Alcino Frazão, one of the greatest guitarists in the history of fado, and started playing with him. A year later he was already part of Amália's group after he replaced Alcino Frazão in a performance with Carlos Gonçalves and he invited him to play with Amália Rodrigues.
In 1982 he participated in the album "Fado!" scored by Nuno da Câmara Pereira.
He competed for the Festival RTP da Canção with "White Roses for My Love" in 1983. Despite the low rating, the theme had a great public exposure.
He plays and writes three songs from the album "Sonho Menino" by Nuno da Câmara Pereira.
In 1984 he released the single "Fiz-me Vagabundo". and, with the song "Umbadá" he returns to the 1985 Festival RTP da Canção. He also participates in the OTI Festival.
In 1986, his first LP, "Enamorado" was published, which included themes such as "Mulata" and "Lua Feiticeira Nua".
In 1988 he released the album "Coisas da Vida". Rádio Comercial, by public vote, gives it the Popularity Award.
In 1989 he released his first fado album, "Boa Noite Solidão", in which Fernando Maurício, Maria da Fé and José Manuel Barreto collaborated. Includes themes like "Pode ser saudade" and "Quem vai ao fado".
Participates in the 1990 Festival RTP da Canção with "Via Área".
The album "À Tua Porta" was released in 1991. He produced the album "Notas sobre a alma" by Paulo Bragança and "Notas à Guitarra" by António Pinto Basto.
"Oxála" is published in 1993, a disc highly praised by critics.
In 1997 he released the album "Terra d'Água" and, two years later, "Rumo Ao Sul".
In 2000, the album "Inéditos" was released, recorded live at Tivoli Theatre and, in May 2000, he celebrated his 25th career with a concert in the same venue.
In 2001 the book + disc "Terras do Risco" was released, a project by the Italian pianist Arrigo Cappelletti with poems by Fernando Pessoa, Mário Sá-Carneiro and Eugénio de Andrade. The other co-workers are bandoneonist Daniel di Bonaventura, guitarist Flavio Minardo, cellist Davide Zacharia, Custódio Castelo, on Portuguese guitar and singer Alexandra.
The album "Velho Fado" is published in 2002. On the following year, the Italian city of Recanati honored him in recognition of his talent as a singer, producer, instrumentalist and promoter of new talents (Academia de Marco Poeta).
In January 2004 he is the musical director of the show "Boa Noite Solidão" in honor of Fernando Mauricio and he also participates in the album "A Tribute To Amalia Rodrigues".
In his work "Memória e Fado" he presents some curious duets and collaborations (Lucio Dalla, Ana Moura, Toninho Horta, Egberto Gismonti). Recorded in Portugal and Brazil, the disc also contains four versions. The biggest highlight is an excerpt from a live performance by Amália Rodrigues, recorded in 1994, with the theme "Vida".
In October 2005, he celebrated his 30-year career with a concert at Forum Lisboa, with the participation of Argentina Santos and Celeste Rodrigues.
He collaborates with the rapper Sam The Kid with whom he performs at the 2008 Festas de Lisboa. In addition to the band Sam the Kid, on stage were Custódio Castelo (Portuguese guitar) and Filipe Larsen (bass guitar).
"Vida" was published in 2009, and features several national and international artists, namely: Sam the Kid, Fábia Rebordão, Ana Moura, Marcio Montarroyos, Daniel di Bonaventura and Lucio Dalla. The album also features an unprecedented duet with Amália Rodrigues, recorded at the singer 's home in 1996.
In 2012 the album "Chamamele Fado" is released, in which we can find, once again, several participations of guest artists, Dino Santiago, Guilherme Banza, Nu Soul Family, Fausto Bordalo Dias and Expensive Soul.
