Contemporary Brazilian Music
Since their founding in 2016, Louis Arques and Richard Boukas have been presenting their acclaimed original Brazilian repertoire in dynamic performances and cutting-edge educational residencies.
The central goal of these residencies is to synergize Brazilian music performance practice and technical musicianship with its rich historical, cultural and theoretical foundations– expanding the artistic and academic horizons of contemporary musicians open to new traditions.
Diálogos Duo offers three models:
• VIRTUAL (video conferencing)
• ONSITE (presented at host institution)
• HYBRID (onsite and virtual)
Richard Boukas has composed SEVEN SUITES (67 movements) of music for the Duo– the largest body of original contemporary Brazilian repertoire composed for clarinet (bass clarinet) and guitar worldwide.
This expansive body of repertoire, the Duo's dynamic artistic synergy and Boukas's decades of Brazilian music expertise has ignited the keen attention of universities, festivals and conferences presenting contemporary Classical, World, Jazz, Latin and New music.
