Música Hoje (Music Today) is a radio programme presented, realized and produced by Miso Music Portugal and the Portuguese Music Research & Information Centre, returning after 15 years to the Antena 2, every month, fortnightly on Saturdays at 1 a.m. The new edition of Música Hoje will be dedicated, above all, to Portuguese new music, putting side by side the creation of composers from various generations.

Música Hoje (Music Today) responds to the need to draw attention to the richness that exists today on the Portuguese music scene by giving voice to the phenomenon already proclaimed as the "second renaissance of Portuguese music", in which the variety of aesthetics and quality of languages confirms the fact that, indeed, there is not only one contemporary music!

The second Música Hoje programme, dedicated to three great names of the Portuguese 20th century music, has as departure point the figure of Francine Benoît, on the occasnion of her 120th anniversary. Her work has clear connections with Cláudio Carneyro and Fernando Lopes-Graça, a sufficient pretext to join the scarce recordings of her music with the work of these two composers.
