The Latin American Music Center is pleased to present this recording of baritone Bruno Sandes and pianist Hanmo Qian, Grand Prize winners of the Fourth Latin American Music Recording Competition (2014). This event is a continuation of the Annual Competition in the Performance of Music from Spain and Latin America that started in 1998. In 2011, the fiftieth anniversary of the LAMC’s founding, the format changed to focus on Latin American music, with a grand prize of a professional recording project. The 2014 competition was judged by Javier Arrebola, Cristina Capparelli-Gerling, Erszébet Gaál, Gretchen Horlacher, and Thomas Walsh; with non-voting moderator Erick Carballo.
The strong and ubiquitous references that music and lyrics make to the Brazilian landscape and its people led to the selection of celebrated Japanese-Brazilian artist Tomie Ohtake’s artwork, whose colors, shapes, and textures convey a telluric sense of Brasilidade.
This project is sponsored by the Guillermo and Lucille Espinosa Fund for Artistic and Research Projects of the Latin American Music Center, and by the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. ®© 2014 The Trustees of Indiana University.
