DELGANI QUARTET & CLARICE ASSAD
The music of Brazil has undergone a tremendous transformation over the course of time. This album showcases the work of three different eras of Brazilian composers from Rio de Janeiro, each of whom represents a unique style and period in the history of Brazilian music. Jobim was a pioneer of the bossa nova sound, while Villa Lobos was a key figure in the development of choro music. Clarice Assad is a contemporary composer who brings a fresh perspective to Brazilian music. Taken together, these three composers provide a glimpse into the vast and ever-changing landscape of Brazilian music.
