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).
Thiago de Mello’s music fuses the style of Indian chants from his native Amazon with harmonic and rhythmic elements from Brazilian popular music, often with a strong jazz influence. 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.
