Musicians from groups linked to the institution, contacted by the Lusa, stated that the action of the House of music changed "radically" the port, turning it into a "cultural centre in Europe", the musical level.

Philip Lent, with 35 years and natural da Covilhã, recognizes already have felt tempted to return abroad, where she graduated and where there are more concerts and ' caches ' superiors, in particular vis-à-vis the obstacles posed by the financial crisis.

"If they used to be a musician was already seen as a ' hobby ', now it's much worse," said Philip Lent, a cellist with the Orquestra Barroca and Remix Ensemble guest who collaborates with international groups, but notes: "obviously I'm very fond of Portugal, I live here".

For the Italian, who easily can be seen on the streets of the city on his bike, "the spirit of the House [of music] is not an elitist spirit, the spirit of the House is to make an elitist music accessible to all".

This is because the existing nas conservadorismos recalls traditional orchestras, which are part of "a tradition that was not questioned," but that, at Casa da Música, came to be "updated".

"The Symphony Orchestra is the mirror of society and she must change with society," reflected Aldo Salvetti.

The Casa da Música "educated the public," said Salvetti, who believes that "the public is already a public port connoisseur of contemporary repertoire", as far as the musicians themselves feel its opening.

"I think the politics of the House is very interesting and courageous and contributed to make the port a city with public," added the artist.
