About this album
The series “Classics of the Brazilian Choro – You are the soloist!” enables you to discover the Choro style through the incomparable experience of performing the compositions yourself, accompanied by a Choro Ensemble.
Each volume of the series features a famous composer of this amazing music style, including his/her main compositions in digitally-mastered audios and a printed music book with the corresponding C, Bb and Eb scores, as well as interviews, biography and relevance of the author to the history of Choro.
Using the audios, listen to the complete stereo tracks (with soloist) for your reference. Tune your instrument (flute, sax, clarinet or mandolin) using the tuning notes. Now have fun being the soloist, using the accompaniment tracks featuring a leading Choro Ensemble from Brazil.
Guitar players can also play along with the Choro Ensemble: to remove the 7-string guitar (bass), turn the balance of the sound system to the left, and to remove the 6-string guitar, turn it to the right. This will remove the guitars from both complete (with soloist) and base tracks.
Now you can play along with your own “Choro Ensemble,” which will always be there for you, whether at home, on the road, or at the beach.
Good practice and have fun!
