Chorinhos et Valsinhas
The choro is the learned form of Brazilian music, and no doubt the purest and closest to the soul of cariosca. Flute and guitar are the dominant instruments. In these "Chorinhos and Valsinhas", Alain Vérité, expert in this popular art form, has managed to fuse inspiration with pedagogical equilibrium. Finely dosed combinations of tropical delicacy and scholarly refinement, these singing themes and subtle harmonies blend to provide maximum pleasure for performers and listeners alike.
Bon voyage to those in the land of Saudade, and Saravâ Alain!
These 6 compositions are not technically difficult: depending on the piece, 4 to 6 years of playing experience on either instrument. Performing them may, however, require a more advanced level, whether for rhythmic clarity (more demanding in duets) or dynamics and musicality.
