Música Armorial - String Quintets from Northeastern Brazil

NI5483
£14.99

Details

"With an utterly fascinating collection of rhythms, melodies (often modal, with lowered seventh and/or fifth) and strange instrumental sounds, we are transported no less closely to the heart of Brazil than we are to that of Mexico by a traditional mariachi band, and with greater variety. Be prepared to forget about main forms and development, and to enjoy music such as has not been heard before from a quintet of 'standard' string instruments, even in the hands of Villa-Lobos ..." John Duarte, Gramophone
