The Classic Brazil


The Classic Brazil

When you hears about Brazil and music, musical genres that comes to your mind are samba, pagoda, axé and other rhythms of Carnival. But what many people are unaware of is the true face of Wonderland… Hip-Hop, Rock, Pop, Country, Dance, Electronic, and Christian are just a few of the genres present in Brazilian culture.

The Brazilian Symphony Orchestra has 75 years of history and is the most traditional symphonic ensemble of whole country, with emphasis on baroque music and also contemporary. The Brazilian Symphony Orchestra performs concerts in and out of the country, and performs with renowned gallery musicians who have collaborated in the seven decades with José Carreras, Zubin Mehta, Leonard Bernstein, Martha Argerich, Mstislav Rostropovich and the current, David Fray.

From Mozart to John Williams, the incorporation of movie soundtracks to musical productions of the symphonic ensemble in the last decade has raised more fans and drawn attention to Brazilian classical music. Concerts with the main trail of Indiana Jones's and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Star Wars (1977) and Jurassic Park (1993) are already common in the presentations of the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, which renders homage to this great music and the world of the Brazilian talent in classic music.

May the Force be with you, ladies and gentlemen
