Notes & Reviews:

Numerous spectators were curious to attend Sergio and Odair Assad's first concert in Brussels. Their concert was broadcast live on the classical channel of the Belgian radio (RTBF) and simultaneously, thousands of listeners discovered this fabulous Brazilian guitar duo with its amazing virtuosity and spontaneous, sincere musical expression. In 1983, the Assad Brothers were playing Paul Fischers' guitars (their long and friendly collaboration with Thomas Humphrey - the guitar maker from New York -would start three years later). Already well known in the USA, the Assads were making their European debuts. It was during that same autumn, while listening to his music played by the Assads, that Astor Piazzolla decided to compose the now famous 'Tango Suite' for them. Playing for the first time in Brussels, Sergio and Odair, surely could not predict that 21 years later - in Brussels as well - they would have the opportunity to proudly present the talent of their parents Jorge and Angelina, their sister Badi and their children Clarice, Carolina, Rodrigo and Camille.
