In the period of seclusion and isolation of the last two years, the importance of music has only become more important, say Israeli clarinettist Anat Cohen and her partner on the seven-string guitar, Brazilian Marcello Gonçalves. They stand their rousing fun-loving and sensual sound up against all gloom. Their new programme is inspired by the beauty of Brazil and the spirit of its people.
The result is at once intimate and virtuosic, an atmospheric dialogue, melancholic and hopeful, imbued with the feeling expressed in the Portuguese language by the untranslatable term saudade – bittersweet, at once deeply happy, sad and full of emotion.
