Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
First let me say that these are fine musicians, and they present a set of performances that are unfailingly strong, expressive, and imaginative. The concept of instrumentation is inspired; viola replaces violin the balance is easier and more natural. It helps that flutist Amy Porter always keeps her dynamics down to blend with her colleagues. It also helps that Joao Luiz is a strong guitar player with a bold yet beautiful tone. And it further helps that each of the works on this recital is a perfect trio. It's really satisfying.

All the works except the Brouwer are in the vein of Latin popular music - even Frederic Hand's. They are unusually sophisticated works for all their vernacular roots, and I enjoyed all of them. The Brouwer Paisajes, Retratos, y Mujeres (Landscapes, Portraits, and Women) is the exception. The first movement is inspired by a portrait of Wagner and Mathilde Wesendonck, II is a graceful feminine minuet, and the last is a fantasy on Dowland's song 'Can She Excuse'. It's lovely music and I'm glad to have it. Luiz's own 'Todas as Manhas: Homenage a Luis Bonfa' is similar in essence in this case, a fantasy on Bonfa's theme from Black Orpheus, 'Manha de Carnaval'. Fragments of those lovely melodies come in and out, are expanded and contracted. It's fascinating and beautiful. Excellent sound and notes.
