In 2015, with the supervision of Francisco Cardoso, I did an investigation aiming to understand what was the feeling of a composer at the moment of the premiere of his work. Late last year (2017) Novas Edições Académicas - Academic New Editions Press - offered me the possibility of publishing this investigation.
