The Brazilian Classical Song

available at iTunes / Amazon

Two hundred years journey through the history of the Brazilian Classical Song.
The Brazilian Classical Songbook is one of longing. Hauled from either Portugal or Africa, the immigrants brought along a lust for their homeland, a yearning for which the Portuguese has a word for unrivaled by any other language: the famous saudade.

Such saudade is found in almost every song; it speaks as a longing from a past all but lost, as it were grief for a lost love. In addition to their native musical education, most of the Brazilian composers presented here also studied in Europe. While their music is thereby suffused and enriched with European influence, the original mood of longing infuses their compositions.
