Villa Lobos Suite
Ivo Perelman | Mat Maneri | Tanya Kalmanovitch
Make no mistake. This CD is not a collection of pieces by Villa Lobos. There are no Villa Lobos’ themes recorded here. It is rather a tribute that Ivo Perelman pays to his famous Brazilian compatriot whose music he studied for over two decades. The audacity of the project is in the fact that Ivo invited two outstanding viola players Mat Maneri and Tanya Kalmanovitch to record a series of improvised pieces. One tenor saxophone between two violas — this has never been done before. Enjoy the brilliant notes by Neil Tesser and Tanya Kalmanovitch.
