Back in October of 2009, I had the great honor of sitting with the great Carlos Barbosa-Lima, considered one of the foremost interpreters of classical and Brasilian music, for a 2-hr interview. He generously shared with me stories, anecdotes, lessons, and advice; to be able to document that was a privilege.
Part One: Behind the scenes mini-doc. Childhood & Early Years. Also featuring Lawrence Del Casale.
Part Three: On technique, phrasing, arranging, and practice. Tips & advice on performance (jam packed w/ examples).
Carlos Barbosa-Lima will be playing at Carnegie Hall on April 24th, in celebration of his 50th recording.
