Notes & Reviews:

With a prolific output ranging from solo guitar pieces to symphonic works, including concertos, chamber music, and many film scores, Leo Brouwer is recognized as one of the world's most innovative and internationally performed contemporary composers. In this recording his progressive and imaginative contribution to extending the horizons of the guitar duo is fully demonstrated. Subtle allusions to dance styles, virtuosity, and rhythms referencing Cuban folk music are some of the features of these exciting pieces which range from the special sonorities of Per suonare a due to the Sonata de Los Viajeros, an international voyage in four movements.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The Brasil Duo - Joao Luis and Douglas Lora - is a very fine ensemble. Their technical command and imagination are as strong as Presti and Lagoya, the Great Duo of the mid- 20th Century. I reviewed their Castelnuovo- Tedesco release (Mar/Apr 2009) and found it superb. This is just as well played. The first three works, Triptico, Micropiezas, and Musica Incidental Campesina, are all nationalist, based on the Afro-Cuban and Spanish music of Brouwer's heritage. Per Suonare a Due is from 1973, when Brouwer was in his experimental period. It is, as the title might indicate, an exploration of sonorities from the two instruments, without any particular concern for tonal center or traditional harmonic progressions. The most substantial work is the most recent, the Sonata de Los Viajeros from 2009, lasting nearly half an hour. It takes us on a journey from freezing northern regions through Greece, Leipzig, and finally to Cuba. It is the most beautiful work on the recital.
