ORIGINIS: LIVE FROM BRAZIL
NADJA AND THE ASSADS
Named after the CD’s orchestral work, Concerto Originis, an homage to the Italian/Brazilian heritage of this trio of celebrated musicians by Sergio Assad, this passionate recording is the seventh from the NSS MUSIC label.
It features the amazing trio of violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and guitarists Sergio and Odair Assad performing with the Orquestra Sinfonica do Estado de São Paulo in “Originis”, and in works by Ginastera (Tres Danzas Argentinas), Piazzola (Milonga Per Tre)
and Clarice Assad, Sergio’s daughter and award winning composer/pianist in her own right (Three Sketches). The CD comes complete with a special bonus track, Piazzola’s Auscencias. “Originis,” with works by four composers performed by three musicians, featuring two different musical scopes – intimate and grand, equals one unique CD not to be missed.
