Song Description

"Expressivo e Cantabile". The movement is in a tripartite form, consisting of a melancholic theme first stated in the strings and then taken up by the soloist. The middle section is stated by a Contrabass solo, and is very rhythmic in nature. There is a fugal section that follows. The movement comes to close with a rousing restatement of the opening theme. It is a very upbeat Brazilian work. The CD, "Concerto a Brasileira" has been nominated for a Grammy Award in 2001--'Best soloist with Orchestral Accompaniment' category.
