Tribute to composer Fernando Lewis Mattos

A year after his death (in 4 th November of 2018), a recital within the Porto Alegre Book Fair program pays tribute to composer Fernando Lewis de Mattos. Professor of Ufrgs, he was a notorious reference in string instruments and the composer who most created pieces for recorder in the country, as well as an old music enthusiast - he was one of the creators of the Música Mundana group. He was a professor of aesthetics and harmony in the Department of Music of the Instituto de Artes (UFRGS).
