Guitarist brings music of Brazil

By Ari Schneider
To fit the hot Brazilian-like
weather that Ann Arbor has felt re-
cently, tomorrow night the Ann Ar-
bor Chamber Orchestra, under the
direction of Carl Daehler, will feature
Brazilian music played by Brazilian
guitarist Carlos Barbosa-Lima. The
concert will feature pieces by
Brazilian composers Antonio Carlos
Jobim and Laurindo Almeido, as
well as works Handel, Haydn,
Whettam, Debussy, and Ravel.
Barbosa-Lima, one of the world's
leading classical guitarists, will
highlight his appearance with pre-
miere performances of a new ar-
rangement for guitar and orchestra by
Jobim, Saudade do Brazil (Jobim is
considered the originator of the
"bossa nova" sound) and a piece by
Brazilian guitarist Almeido called
Choro e Batuque.
Besides premiering new pieces,
Barbosa-Lima will showcase his ex-

traordinary guitar virtuosity for the
first time to an Ann Arbor audience.
He started developing his guitar
skills when he was six years old at
the encouragement of his father. By
the time he was nine he started tak-
ing private lessons with Brazilian
guitarist Isaias Savio. He was the
first important teacher to bring seri-
ous study of the guitar to Brazil.
Barbosa-Lima's wide range of in-
fluences originated with Savio. He
exposed Barbosa-Lima to other mu-
sicians and composers in order to
give him the basic foundations of
harmony, interpretation and counter-
point. These important elements al-
lowed him to understand and perform
other forms of music like jazz and
After three years of studying, in
1956, the 12-year-old Barbosa-Lima
made his concert debut. He then went
on to win top prizes international
competitions guitar competitions and
made his first United States tour at

the age of 23. Eventually Barbosa-
Lima studied with the legendary
classical guitarist Andre Segovia.
Barbosa-Lima's broad musical
training lends an eclectic taste to his
musical repertoire. In an 1982 inter-
view with Pittsburgh Press, he said,
"I don't like to limit myself. I like
to explore." He plays baroque and
classical composers such as Bach and
Scarlatti, 20th century composers
such as Ginastera and Mignone,
popular composers like Gershwin
and Sondheim, and original pieces.
He has transcribed for the guitar
about 20 Scarlatti pieces and 15 by
Bach as well as pieces by composers
ranging from Debussy to Jobim,
Gershwin to Cole Porter. In the in-
terview, he commented, "Some of
them sound better on the guitar than
on the original instruments." Be-
cause the guitar has an intimate and
expressive which makes the instru-
ment a powerful one, he said, "It's
like an orchestra in itself with a great

range of sonority and colors - if it's
properly managed.
While Barbosa-Lima feels that the
guitar is gaining popularity, he tries
to promote the guitar as a "respected
concert instrument and as a good
medium for expression. And I'd like
to expand guitar literature, encourag-
ing top composers to write for the
guitar and doing my own ar-
rangements and transcriptions."
Just as Barbosa-Lima has adapted
his guitar skills to different types of
music, this concert promises to in-
troduce Ann Arbor to great Brazil-
ian music to go along with the trop-
ical weather.
