Diálogos Duo Programs

Their dynamic performances, innovative original compositions and authentic interpretations of Brazilian popular genres are establishing DIÁLOGOS DUO as a cutting-edge contemporary ensemble.

The Duo offers three main programs:

• THE BRAZILIAN SONGBOOK
   Jobim, Nascimento and Beyond

• HOMAGES TO BRAZILIAN MASTERS
   Original Boukas Compositions

• CHORO CLASSICS of 20th CENTURY
   Pixinguinha to Jacob do Bandolim

This permits concert series and educational presenters maximum flexibility who program Chamber, Brazilian/Latin music and Jazz.

Concerts are most often presented without intermission– however, the Duo offers more extended performances with an intermission.

• HYBRID PROGRAMS

Today's music audiences are becoming more diverse and discerning listeners of Brazilian music. To achieve even greater diversity and flexibility within a single concert, presenters can request a mix of repertoire that draws upon any of the three above specialty programs.

" DIÁLOGOS DUO presented a fabulous concert here– a broad mixture of the Brazilian Songbook, Choro Classics and original Tribute compositions. Their educational information on each piece was brilliant and informative. The audience comprised of numerous Brazilians was mesmerized by the music that Richard and Louis played. Highly recommended!"
