overview
Part of Steinway Salon / Music

Pianist Max Barros performs works by composers from every phase of Brazilian music history, all of which respond in highly creative manner to the African heritage of Brazil. Featuring special guests, soprano Angelica de la Riva and cellist Andrew Janss.

"The history of Brazilian music is an exuberant mélange of European art music, indigenous traditional music, and African influences that contributed to a vibrant musical melting pot. This concert presents a broad and varied selection of works by composers from every phase of Brazilian music history, all of whom respond in highly creative manner to the African heritage of Brazil. Dance forms, syncopated rhythms, percussive sonorities, and complex textures create a musical tapestry that never fails to captivate." -Max Barros
