Description: This release showcases the breadth and variety of Brazilian music by focusing on composers who explore traditional styles and use native forms, such as the bossa nova, choro, frevo, and samba, combined with neo-Romanticism, Modernism and jazz. Looking beyond cultural stereotypes, it includes Camargo Guarnieri’s grandly Romantic sonata and a violin arrangement of one of Villa-Lobos’s most colorful character pieces, alongside contemporary works that explore nature painting, song, and Carnival, offering an abundance of vibrancy, dance, languorous rhythms, and joyful wit. Francesca Anderegg (violin), Erika Ribeiro (piano).
