  • Description

    Contains world premiere recordings of works by Luiz Barbosa and Ivan Moody, alongside works for violin and piano by Ravel, Elgar and Debussy. "The pianist Joao Paulo Santos and I have given concert performances of the five works which make up this CD numerous times. Four of these works (the Sonatas by Elgar and Debussy, Luiz Barbosa's Romance and Ravel's Tzigane) were written during the first twenty five years of the twentieth century; Ivan Moody's Ascent was composed in 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic. All are masterpieces of the literature for these two instruments, and for this reason we have chosen to create an album that would bring them together, creating a bridge from the last century to the current one." - Bruno Monteiro, Violin

    One of Portugal's leading classical musicians, Bruno Monteiro is internationally recognized as a "top violinist" (Opus Klassiek) as well as an "admirable artist" (Musical Opinion). For more than 25 years he has been leading an intense concertizing career as recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician.

    Joao Paulo Santos is a graduate of the Lisbon National Conservatory. For the past four decades, he has been associated with Teatro Nacional de Sao Carlos (the Lisbon Opera House), first as Principal Chorus Conductor, and currently as Director of Musical and Stage Studies.
