Project Information
  Mário Adnet
  This project has the objective of re-visiting selected works of the famous Brazilian composer Heitor Villa Lobos (1887 – 1959), one of the most important composers that blended traditional and urban Brazilian music to the classical tradition. The project received in 2012 a 600,000 USD grant/sponsorship from Itau/BBA Bank through a tax incentive program from the Brazilian Ministry of Culture, which allowed the creation, rehearsal, an audio CD recording and 2 premier concerts in São Paulo on October 2012 . The recorded CD was launched by Borandá Produções and was nominated for the 14th Latin Grammy Award in the Best Classical Album category in 2013. The work features original arrangements, guests like worldwide known Milton Nascimento and Edu Lobo, and music that has been previously unrecorded with this lineup, replacing classical singers for popular ones, showing the strong influence that Villa Lobos had on contemporary Brazilian popular music.
