This first recording by the Duo Aurore is an eclectic selection of Brazilian and Argentinian repertoire from the 20th and 21st centuries. The title of the album, “Iguaçu”, is a reference to the magnificent Iguazu Falls located on the border between the two countries and listed as a Unesco World Heritage site. Often inspired by popular music, the repertoire is rich in harmonic and rhythmic variations. Famous works such as Libertango by Astor Piazzolla or O trenzinho do caipira by Villa-Lobos are presented alongside more recent pieces such as Nação nº 2, by the eminent Brazilian composer and pianist Hércules Gomes.
