ArtistsAntonio Vaz Lemes (piano)
Mehmari’s Sonata was composed specifically for Antonio Vaz Lemes, using rhapsodic, improvisatory techniques reminiscent of jazz, alongside influences as wide-ranging as Prokofiev, Liszt, and the playful lyricism of Brazilian popular music.
Guarnieri’s Sonata takes the listener on a journey from tension, to bitterness, to triumph, while Amazonas's Sonatina is a tribute to the urbane wit of Francis Poulenc.
Villani-Côrtes is one of Brazil's most performed living composers, respected both as a popular musician and as a classical composer. On listening to this recording of Antonio Vaz Lemes performing his Sonata, Villani-Côrtes declared: ‘At that moment, I felt my life reached its climax!’
Currently residing in São Paulo, Antonio Vaz Lemes is a Professor at the Municipal School of Arts Initiation (EMIA). ‘Sonata Brasileira’ is his first solo album; his collaborative album with countertenor Edson Cordeiro was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award.
