Rogério Bicudo

Brazilian Guitar

Heitor Villa-Lobos and his musical contemporaries are at the heart of this tribute, presented by fellow-Brazilian Rogerio Bicudo. Although composer Villa-Lobos left behind a multifaceted oeuvre, he’s best remembered for his guitar music, namely the Etudes and Choros. Rogerio Bicudo, who is classically trained, is a masterful interpreter of the choro, a genre combining traditional elements with the swinging emotions and rhythmic richness of the Brazilian musical tradition.
