Composer Alive: Brazil

Integrating musical creativity into everyday life

CA_BrazilThe culmination of our months-long collaboration with Brazilian composer Alexandre Lunsqui, this concert featured the World Premiere of his new piece Toy.

Written over a six month period in short installments which we recorded as he sent them to us, Toy is a virtuosic, energetic, fun piece for our resident Palomar ensemble.

The rest of the concert featured music by other living Brazilian composers and Mr. Lunsqui traveled to Chicago to be present.
