Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, April 2012
The quality is first-rate, a tribute to the musical and expressive gains Minczuk can achieve when an orchestra is with him...The real find of the disc for me was Edino Krieger's Passacalha para o Novo Milenio, a finely crafted score that slows the pace of the disc down nicely before the final pair of works...this is a winning and hugely entertaining disc. Enjoy!

Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra / Minczuk

Dance and Brazilian music are often regarded as more or less synonymous, in the same way that the samba to many of us is Brazilian dance! But the many acclaimed recordings by the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra of symphonic works, tone poems and operas by Villa-Lobos, Camargo Guarnieri and other Brazilian composers, have demonstrated the variety of their national music, and in the same way this disc brings proof of the rich and many-faceted nature of Brazilian dance. Alongside the ubiquitous samba, the batuques, congadas and mouraos included here give us hints of the fascinating universe of regional and ethnic traditions that make up Brazil. It is a fact that dance music, in all its variety, has played an important part in the development of Brazilian art music: as the search for a national identity intensified, Brazilian composers turned to the popular traditions of the cities and countryside for their material.
