CÉSAR GUERRA-PEIXE (1914-1993): Symphonic Suites No, 1 “Paulista” and No. 2 “Pernambucana”, Circle of Friends.
Catalogue Number: 07Y009
Description: Guerra-Peixe was one of the most versatile Brazilian musicians of the 20th century, gaining a particular mastery of orchestration and creating his own inimitable sound through extensive work in radio, television and cinema. The toe-tapping dance rhythms and lyrical expressiveness in his two Symphonic Suites were inspired by research into Brazilian folk traditions, further enhanced by a broad range of vibrantly eloquent global influences. The light-hearted Roda de Amigos mischievously caricatures Guerra-Peixe’s musical circle of friends and their various woodwind instruments. Goiás Philharmonic Orchestra; Neil Thomson.
