“Images of Brazil” showcases the breadth and variety of Brazilian music by focusing on composers who use native forms, such as the bossa nova, chôro, frevo, and samba, combined with neo-Romanticism, Modernism and jazz. It includes Camargo Guarnieri’s grandly Romantic Violin Sonata No. 4 and a violin arrangement of one of Villa-Lobos’s most colorful character pieces, alongside contemporary works. Violinist Francesca Anderegg is renowned for delivering insightful accounts of contemporary and classical music. Based in Rio de Janeiro, pianist Erika Ribeiro has a wide knowledge of Brazilian music complemented by a deep grounding in European repertoire.
