The QUINTETTO for winds was composed in 2004 and is in three movements.. A flute “cadenza” starts the first movement, in which the soul of the “Choros” and “Seresta” music are translated into the initial passage as a new kind of popular music. It is relevant to point out that Choro is a kind of serenade which was very popular in Brazil in the 30’s and 40’s, when Pixinguinha, Benedito Lacerda, Garoto, Kximbim, Ernesto Nazareth, among others, were the main composers. Today this aesthetic is revived again. However, the harmonies that can be found at this first movement are very far from the original Choro’s presenting a personal approach which addresses a future vision of this kind of music, following the direction made first by the remarkable composer Heitor Villa-Lobos.

The second movement is a minimalist piece where the rhythm of the traditional Brazilian Samba is used through a personal procedure, especially in the horn and bassoon parts. Optionally, the musicians can make a staging at the last bar, standing up from their chairs and walking around the audience, and after this, returning onto the stage to finalize the movement.

The third movement is a fugato in which the beginning is made by a subject and counter-subject; although not developed like a fugue, it goes directly to some new harmonic directions and motions. In this movement, a cyclical form  was used, developing the main theme of the Choro and Seresta listened at the first movement, together with the fugato subject, finalizing with a vibrant coda. This compositional procedure will be also used later at the third movement of the Viana’s third symphony, Terra Brasilis.
