Max Barros (piano)
Mozart Camargo Guarnieri was the most important Brazilian composer next to Villa-Lobos. Guarnieri's piano music embodies his most distinctive stylistic features. One of his most beloved works, the Danca Negra shares folkmusic inspiration with the Suite Mirim. The Ponteios are characterized by an enormous variety of Brazilian music styles and moods, and the Sonata can be seen as a summary of Guarnieri's musical personality. Max Barros's 'unfaltering brio and a complete command of the idiom' (Gramophone) can also be heard in Guarnieri's Piano Concertos (8557666 and 8557667). His playing has been hailed as 'simply too good to miss' (MusicWeb International).
