The emergent duo have teamed up to arrange and perform a major three-movement work by acclaimed Brazilian composer Maurício Carrilho. The work, originally a concerto for orchestra and guitar, is here reimagined as a duo of seven-string guitars. The first movement, Lapa, is a lively choro and ode to the rambunctious nightclub district in Rio de Janeiro. The second movement, Madrugada, is a lush waltz and a nod to the great choro composer Pixinguinha. The third celebrates the southern Brazilian way of life, and is a cracking chamamé, a characteristic dance of the River Plate area (which takes in southern Brazil, Uruguay and northeast Argentina). In the hands of de Vries and Rudd the work takes on a new life. Watch all three movements on YouTube or click here for more info.
