More information about Rio Amazonas tickets

'Rio Amazonas' is an exuberant, exciting and thought-provoking mix of jazz harmonies, Brazilian grooves, baroque counterpoint and symphonic architecture which combine in the London premiere of a new category of contemporary music: classical music with a groove.
Composer and pianist Roland Perrin was commissioned by Hertfordshire Chorus to write this piece inspired by the Amazon River and region; its topography, its multitude of insects, the mystery of its remote tribes, and the experiences of the different people arriving from afar. Performed by a heady mix of jazz trio, massed choirs, and string orchestra - 'Rio Amazonas' should leave audiences reflecting on the need for humanity to learn to dance with the natural world rather than trample it underfoot. The event also features some classic Brazilian songs from A C Jobim, Rosa Passos and Ivan Lins, arranged by Roland Perrin.
'Music full of contrasts, dramatic but hip and swinging too. Impressively flexible choral writing integrated into the instrumental texture - musically terrific.' (Guardian)
Part of our 25 for 25 commissioning programme.
