Notes & Reviews:

Mozart Camargo Guarnieri is universally recognised as the most important Brazilian composer after Villa-Lobos. The Six Piano Concertos, composed over a period of forty years, offer a complete panorama of Guarnieri's stylistic evolution, in particular his blend of sophisticated compositional techniques and the improvisational character of Brazilian folk-music. The Piano Concertos Nos. 4 and 5 display a number of avant-garde features that are fundamentally different from the more nationalistic vocabulary that informs the earlier three piano concertos (NXS 8557666). Completed shortly after the composer's eightieth birthday, the chamber-like, intimate Piano Concerto No. 6 returns to an earlier style.

"Camargo Guarnieri is surpassed only by Villa-Lobos in the pantheon of Brazilian Composers...Naxos issued the first three of Guardieri's piano concertos five years ago and now completes the cycle of all six...Pianist Max Barros and the Warsaw Philharmonic play the socks off these concertos. Add that to Naxos ultra-vivid sonics, and you've got an hour of musical thrills."-American Record Guide

"...their dazzling presentation takes us on a tirelessly energetic journey into exotica, though with a marked difference...Barros delivers shoals of notes with unfaltering brio and a complete command of the idiom, and he is brilliantly partnered and recorded." -Gramophone Magazine
