Overview

Heitor Villa-Lobos, Brazil's greatest classical composer, borrowed elements of his country's folk and popular music to create his own uniquely alluring style. On Brazilian Rhapsody, Daniel Barenboim's third crossover album -- following Tangos Among Friends and Tribute to Ellington -- the dynamic Argentinean pianist/conductor whips up a comparable blend of classical and popular sounds, offering a tasty sampling of Brazil's many musical delicacies. Backed by a small ensemble of world-class musicians, including flutist Emmanuel Pahud, oboist Alex Klein, and clarinetist Larry Combs, Barenboim leads breezy, intimate arrangements of works by Villa-Lobos (the haunting Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5), Milhaud (two evocative piano solos), as well as familiar songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim ("Wave"), Luiz Bonfá ("Manha de Carnaval"), and others. Brazil's superstar singer-songwriter Milton Nascimento makes a special guest appearance, singing his own "Travessia" as well as Jobim's "Eu sie que vou te amar." Throughout the disc, Barenboim and his friends swing through the sexy rhythms and capture that relaxed, carefree spirit that makes Brazilian music so seductive.
