From Brazil: André Mehmari Trio

One of the brightest stars in Brazilian music, pianist and composer André Mehmari, returns to the U.S. with the piano trio that brought him to prominence twenty years ago. His musicality spans the globe, moving freely between Brazilian music, classical music, and jazz; and his instincts as a composer lead him to interpretations whose clarity often exceeds the original. Whether Jobim, Gershwin, or Monteverdi, his performances are definitive.

A unique feature of his performances are improvisations based on audience suggestions of favorite tunes, compositions, musicians, even abstract ideas. NPR’s Ari Shapiro interviewed Mehmari about his improvisations on the All Things Considered theme.

Last year he toured the repertoire of his latest trio album, Na Esquina do Clube com o Sol na Cabeça. He now returns with newly composed works for his trio, an ensemble that has a special place in the life of one of today’s leading musicians.
