Other info:

After a first recording entirely dedicated to the Spanish composer Joaquin Turina, the Damocles Trio of New York is back at Claves with a double album once again deeply imbued with a strong Latin flavour. On the programme are trios with piano by two sons of Rio de Janeiro - Heitor Villa-Lobos and Oscar Lorenzo Fernandez. The three trios by Villa-Lobos are youthful works, written before the composer made his pivotal journey to Paris. Surprisingly, it is in these early works that he seems the least Brazilian, as if it was his later expatriation that would induce a (re)discovery of his roots. In his introduction, Etienne Barilier writes: “In Rio de Janeiro he was above all a romantic, an impressionist - and French. These youthful works might disappoint if we were to consider them from a Brazilian angle. But they are none the less rich and promising. Moreover, they allow us the pleasure of discovering the road that was gradually to lead the composer to himself.” Oscar Lorenzo Fernandez was born in 1897, ten years after Villa-Lobos. Like him, he infused his work with the folk music of his homeland. And, like him, he was first influenced by European romanticism and French impressionism, only becoming a truly “Brazilian” composer in the early 1920s. His Trio Brasileiro was written in 1924.
