January 21st. 2011.

As I was given the opportunity to write and premiere a piece for piano in hommage of the great Humberto Delgado, I could not let this priviledge go by. On the night of the presentation I had the supreme honour of personaly presenting to Humberto Delgado's daughter Iva Delgado a page from the manuscript of "Fearless", as a symbol of this hommage by my friends the historian Daniel Bastos, and his editor Joao Artur Pinto.

My special thanks to Daniel Bastos and Labirinto Editions, through his president editor Joao Artur Pinto, Commissioners of the piece.

Also to the Great Manuel Carneiro [Grafica do Norte, Amarante].
My special thanks, once more, to the great photographer Manuel Meira, my dear friend.

Finally, my strongest embrace and friendship to Ms. Iva Delgado, Chairwomen of the Humberto Delgado Foundation.
