This recording 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, chôro, frevo and samba, combined with neo-Romanticism, Modernism and jazz. Looking beyond cultural stereotypes, it includes Camargo Guarnieri’s grandly Romantic Violin Sonata No.4 and a violin arrangement of one of Villa-Lobos’s most colourful character pieces, alongside contemporary works that explore nature painting, song, and the Carnival – offering an abundance of vibrancy, dance, languorous rhythms and joyful wit.
