Sorel Classics is proud to present a debut recording of Brazilian Piano Music, performed by renowned pianist Grace Alves. Rio de Janeiro: the quintessential Brazilian city, it carries in its art the expression of the national soul. The national capital for two centuries, Rio has remained the cultural center of the country, and virtually all classical music and musicians of Brazil are in some way connected to the life of the city, especially during the what could arguably be called its Golden Age, teh first half of the 20th century. The program on Keys to Rio is above all a personal presentation of works by Brazilian composers including compositions by Ernesto Nazareth, Chiquinha Gonzaga, Marlos Nobre, Oriano de Almeida and Heitor Villa-Lobos.
