“Tributo ao anonimato” (2007) gets its second performance (Nov. 12)

My work tributo ao anonimato (“tribute to anonimity”), for brass quintet, from 8 years ago, will be performed by musicians of the Londrina State University’s Symphony Orchestra (OSUEL). For this occasion, the work has been adapted for a modified quintet, consisting of trumpet, two horns, trombone and tuba. The work is structured in three movements, each proposing a re-composition/parody of one work from the history of Western music: “fumeuse chorale (pour Solage)” (based on Solage’s “Fumeux Fume”), “Bona blues” (based on an exercise by Pascal Bona) and “batuque de Webern” (based on Anton Webern’s “Kinderstuck”). The work is dedicated to the rest of the organizers (besides me) of the 5th ENCUN (National Composers’ Meeting): Bruno Menegati, Fernanda Navarro, Gustavo Penha, and Valéria Bonafé.

The concert will take place on November 12, 2015, at 8:30 PM, at the UEL Scenic Arts Division’s Casa da Cultura venue (av. Celso Garcia Cid, 205). More info can be found at the event’s Facebook page.

I am grateful to my colleague Tadeu Taffarello, who is responsible for the project, for the oportunity.
