Description: As a pianist, Gnattali was considered one of the great virtuosos of his generation but he also contributed to different musical styles in the Brazilian music scene such as the samba, choro, bossa nova and Brazilian jazz. Expect to hear echoes of his wide range of styles in everything here, especially the short pieces. Now, if only the new “Music of Brazil” series Naxos debuted last month will record a symphony or concerto (or two) by him... Floor Braam (violin), Luís Rabello (piano).
