THE RIGHT SEASONS – Heart to Heart
Daniel Wolff – Guitar
Gaudencio Thiago de Mello – Organic Percussion
Featuring: Carlos Malta (flute and sax), Paulo Sergio Santos (clarinet),
String Quartet from the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, others.

Recently featured in the Grammy Awards entry list for Best Classical Crossover Album, The Right Seasons is the result of 15 years of friendship and collaboration between Daniel Wolff and composer Gaudencio Thiago de Mello.
The Right Seasons features works by Thiago de Mello arranged by Daniel Wolff for guitar, either solo or in a variety of instrumental combinations (with string quartet, two guitars, with flute,clarinet, sax, etc).

Add to that a spice of classical music and we have the recipe for the success of his works. The repertoire of this new CD represents the summit of these styles.

What people are saying about The Right Seasons – Heart to Heart:
“BRAVO! Great sound, balance and production too. Wonderful performances and arrangements.”
SHARON ISBIN, Guitarist, Professor, The Julliard School, USA

"On this recording Thiago de Mello is admirably assisted by guitarist Daniel Wolff, who is also the arranger of the music. The whole recording oozes quality. A lovely selection of pieces."

Eduardo Castañera – Guitar
Artistic director: Daniel Wolff


On this CD, Argentinian guitarist Eduardo Castañera records Daniel’s Scordatura – Palindrome Suite for Guitar, in four movements: Ciranda, Ostinato, Noturno & Moda de Viola. Each movement utilizes a different tuning of the guitar (i.e., a different scordatura), which provides for a diverse harmonic treatment. The suite works somewhat as a palindrome, in the sense that the movements may be either performed in regular order (1-2-3-4) or in reverse order (4-3-2-1).P’al Sur was nominated for the Açorianos Prize for Best Performer in 2003.
