More Info:

Almeida Prado's colossal piano cycle Cartas Celestes ('Celestial Charts') offers a paradigm of audacious invention (GP709, 710, 746, 747) but between 1985 and 1991 this prolific Brazilian composer also wrote a set of 14 nocturnes that display the genre's lyrical impulses. Along with abstract elements and features such as synesthesia, used in homage to his teacher Messaien, the full range of influences can be felt in Almeida Prado's Nocturnes: Chopin, Scriabinesque color, bossa-nova, Brahms-like intervals, serenity and radiant songfulness. Ilhas ('Islands') is a mystical but programmatic work, the predecessor of Cartas Celestes in many essential elements. Aleyson Scopel is an award-winning Brazilian pianist and one of Almeida Prado's greatest contemporary advocates.
