Viva Villa-Lobos!
The Influence of Villa-Lobos on Latin American Composers

Blue Rose Duo: Rose Chen, piano | Lars Hoefs, cello

– as a part of the Villa-Lobos Festival at U.C. Riverside

Celebrating the chamber music of the first distinctly Latino voice in classical music, Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959), the music that influenced him (Bach, Debussy, Stravinsky, and Brazilian Choros), and his influence on Latin American composers of the 20th and 21st centuries (Chavez, Revueltas, Ginastera, and especially Paulo C. Chagas).

A favorite of the Gateway Performance Series, Lars Hoefs and Rose Chen delight the senses as they awlessly blend
the sounds of their musical instruments to caress the listening ear.
