The extraordinarily gifted Brazilian guitarist has toured the world for over four decades, bringing audiences a remarkable blend of music ranging from Scarlatti and Debussy to Gershwin, Jobim, and Brubeck. The program will include solos by Mr. Barbosa-Lima and duets with guest artist Larry Del Casale.
"To all of them [Gershwin, Jobim, Bach, and Albeniz], Mr. Barbosa-Lima brings an ear attuned to counterpoint and technique that gives each independent line its own voice. His transcriptions find and define every moving part, in bossa novas as well as Baroque music. And when he plays chords, melodies and countermelodies together, as he does in Gershwin, he sounds like a team of guitarists." - New York Times
