The national and international recognition of CARLOS GONÇALVES like musical composer is so remarkable as the performer ones. As far as his creative facet, he was the exclusive author of AMALIA RODRÍGUES in the last musical stage of the artist between the years 1980 and the one of her death in 1999.

This stage was the most prolific of Carlos Gonçalves like author and also like interpreter, because he composed the music of the most representative Fados of Amália in it, giving music to the poetry written by the own Amália Rodrígues, with a special mention, among others, to the albums: “Lágrima” recorded with his compositions exclusively and “Gostava de ser quem era” with 5 themes of him, where this collaboration was documented forever.

Nowadays, Carlos Gonçalves is a very good interpreter, maintaining and extending his compositions which includes an unpublished theme dedicated to the memory of Amália, based in a poetry of Tiago Torres da Silva called “MAR DE AMÁLIA” full of beauty like must be a tribute to the great Portuguese singer.

Since 1999 Carlos Gonçalves is required constantly like composer and like interpreter for diverse and well-known artists as much as Fado singers like another foreigner ones.

These are his own compositions
