Diálogos Duo Programs

Their dynamic performances, innovative original compositions and authentic interpretations of Brazilian popular genres are establishing DIÁLOGOS DUO as a cutting-edge contemporary ensemble.

The Duo offers four main programs:

• THE BRAZILIAN SONGBOOK
   A Century of Song

• HOMAGES TO BRAZILIAN MASTERS
   Original Boukas Compositions

• CHORO: VIRTUOSO CLASSICS
   Pixinguinha and Contemporaries

• MUSIC OF MINAS GERAIS
   Nascimento, Horta, Santos, Bosco

This permits concert series and educational presenters maximum flexibility who program Chamber, Brazilian/Latin music and Jazz.

Concerts are most often presented without intermission– however, the Duo offers more extended performances with an intermission.

• HYBRID PROGRAMS

Today's music audiences are becoming more diverse and discerning listeners of Brazilian music. To achieve even greater diversity and flexibility within a single concert, presenters can request a mix of repertoire that draws upon any of the four above specialty programs.

" DIÁLOGOS DUO presented a fabulous concert here– a broad mixture of the Brazilian Songbook, Choro Classics and original Tribute compositions. Their educational information on each piece was brilliant and informative. The audience comprised of numerous Brazilians was mesmerized by the music that Richard and Louis played. Highly recommended!"
