Postcards from Brazil
Rachel Perkins with Mikael Darmanie, piano
Postcards from Brazil is an exploration of early twentieth-century Brazilian music for violin and piano. The program includes works by Brazilian composers Heitor Villa-Lobos and M. Camargo Guarnieri, and looks at how European visitors heard Brazilian music and what they brought to it in their reinterpretations of the original idiom. The French composer Darius Milhaud’s work is featured in the program: he lived in Brazil from 1917 to 1918 and drew heavily from the traditional rhythms found in Brazilian song and dance in his work, as can be heard in his Saudades do Brasil.
