In May 1914, it was created the Military Aeronautics in Portugal. About 100 years after the first aeronautical experiments, Aircraft for Trompa Solo, dedicated to Bernardo Silva, is a memorial to the first aircrafts piloted by the pioneers of military aviation in Portugal, whose replicas are displayed in the Air Museum. They are the Caudron G.3, the Demoiselle XX or the Blériot XI.
This work can be performed in two ways, a short version and a larger one, adapting to the level of the musician and the performance context.
Thus, the first memorial part, calm and free, is followed by a fugue that guides the audience to the adrenaline of the flight.
