We’re excited to host Octávio Deluchi with a program of Brazilian solo guitar compositions. Join us in listening to his gorgeous playing in our Park Slope condo this spring!

We will provide some light snacks and drinks to enjoy. Please note that we are a third floor walkup and a no-shoes apartment, so please leave your shoes on the landing before entering the apartment.

Octávio Deluchi is praised as "one of the most active and brilliant soloists from his generation" (Acervo Digital do Violão Brasileiro) by the specialized press and "one of the greatest talents of the Brazilian guitar today" (O Tempo), Octávio Deluchi had his solo debut at Carnegie Hall at the age of 24 and has more than 15 awards in national and international levels. He has collaborated with a wide variety of artists, between performances, premieres, and commissions, such as Emmanuele Baldini, Tania Leon, Sergio Assad, Vicente Paschoal, Rosana Diniz, Gabriele Leite, Eduardo Guterres, Guido Campos, to name a few. An advocate for new music, Deluchi is fostering the collaboration between performer and composer in order to create a new sonic identity for the classical guitar through different strategies on and off the stage.

What's the music?

The Portuguese word “Saudade'' is widely recognized because of the lack of translation into other languages. Despite that, there are different attempts in order to explain it: some people may refer to the feeling of deeply missing someone, others may think about longing and a past experience that is gone, or even losing something you intensely loved. Despite all of those descriptions being more or less accurate, “Saudade” is also the feeling of being far far away from your home country, and since you are a long time gone, that place you knew will never come back, even if you come back. The repertoire of this program presents powerful pieces by Brazilian composers that address the problem of “saudade” in different ways, or are pieces that trigger that feeling because of its sound familiarity.

Augustin Barrios - Choro da Saudade, Danza Paraguaya

Heitor Villa-Lobos - Preludes nº 1, 2, 3

Dilermando Reis - Eterna Saudade, Conversa de Baiana, Xodó da Baiana

Vicente Paschoal - Dedication nº 1

Chiquinha Gonzaga - Lua Branca, Corta-Jaca
