We are thrilled to welcome back the Brasil Duo to Austin on Saturday, August 1st, for the final concert of our 2015 Brasil! Summer Series. Since their last visit, this dynamic duo has done many incredible things, including perform with cello icon Yo Yo Ma!

Get tickets online here, or call 512-300-2247.

We are particularly excited to hear Joao Luiz’s arrangements of Rameau and Gismonti again.

The second half begins with a magnificent large work by Leo Brouwer that the duo performed in Havana, Cuba, with the composer present, on the same concert in which they premiered a new work with Yo Yo Ma and Carlos Prieto!
