The Concert

The Brazil Symphony Orchestra opened the Goals for Life Copa Gastronômica event in São Paulo. The repertory included compositions from the musician Radamés Gnattali, one of the icons of the Brazilian concert music. He was a friend of the conductor Morozowicz.

The choice to play the Gnattali songs was conscientious. The conductor said that the Gnattali songs “never would admit barriers between the classic and the popular”. His extensive work has arousing more and more the interest not only from musicians and specialized critics. It has served as a vehicle of approaching between the large audience and the concert music.

From this point appeared the sensible choice of the author for the Goals for Life Copa Gastronômica, which brings to everyone, besides music, the best of our gastronomy, harmonized with solidarity.

For this delicious combination there wasn’t nothing more proper than the running concert by The Brazil Symphony Orchestra. Created under the approval of the Brazil Music Association, its main goal is the disclosure of the national concert music. For this, the group became a rescue vehicle of important works of the national composers and their orchestral repertories, presented by important Brazilian musicians. The public and the critics have approved it with honors.
