American violinist Francesca Anderegg and Brazilian pianist Erika Ribeiro offer a “Tour of Brazil” performance with projected photography that captures the gorgeous and diverse landscapes of Brazil.

Project Description

American violinist Francesca Anderegg and Brazilian pianist Erika Ribeiro’s “Tour of Brazil” concert collaboration will present Brazil in all of its geographic, cultural, and musical diversity. Anderegg and Ribeiro recently toured Brazil with a program of classical chamber music. Now, they are bringing their collaboration to the United States and abroad with a concert of all-Brazilian music that will take the audience on a tour of this diverse country. These award-winning artists will present music that shows European influences, as well as the traditional Latin sounds of the tango and bossa nova. Alongside the performance, the audience will view photography that captures the gorgeous landscapes of Brazil, including scenes from the lush northeastern coast, the highlands of the Sertão region, the “melting pot” of Porto Alegre in the south, and the cosmopolitan cities of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. The presentation will be woven together with spoken commentary from the artists.

César Guerra-Peixe (1914-1993), Três peças para violino e piano
