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 a digitally-mastered audio CD and a high-quality 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 CD, listen to the complete stereo tracks (with soloists) 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.

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.

Have fun and good training!
