Contemporary Brazilian Music
"Richard Boukas has composed an impressive and prolific body of work for himself and clarinet virtuoso Louis Arques. Having dedicated my career to the art of Duo performance, I know the artistic chemistry required to make exceptional Brazilian music. Arques and Boukas possess this unique connection and a complete command of their cutting-edge repertoire. I am certain that Boukas's present and future works will be a perennial contribution to contemporary clarinet-guitar literature."
