First DVD of the Brazilian Guitar Quartet Quaternaglia includes images of the release of the CD Presença, statements and making of.
The second volume of “Toca Brasil DVD Series”, which documents the work of ten artists that performed at Itaú Cultural Hall in 2004, is dedicated to Quaternaglia Guitar Quartet. The video shows the complete release recital of the album Presença – performed in November – as well as statements from the members of the ensemble and other musicians, such as Egberto Gismonti and Paulo Bellinati. The release of the DVD, distributed commercially by Eldorado Label, occurred on March 30th, 2006 at Sesc Ipiranga Hall.
The recital repertoire included pieces from composers of different generations, covering from Radamés Gnatalli (1906) to Douglas Lora (1978). It is worth to mention the Sweet Mineira after Milton Nascimento. The piece was inspired on a conversation between Quaternaglia and the Cuban composer Leo Brouwer, who suggested to the group to research Milton Nascimento’s themes. Sérgio Molina accepted the mission and composed Sweet Mineira. The title is a joke with the words “Suite” (musical form) and “sweet” (in English), in three movements:
I -Ponta de Areia, San Vicente and Variations;
II- Interlude – Cais;
III- Sonata Cravo e Canela
“Joining four guitars is almost an utopia”. That is how Egberto Gismonti defines the challenge faced by the group in the interview that opens the extras of the DVD, while the guitarist Paulo Bellinati says “four guitars are four confusions”. The carrier and the experiences with Quaternaglia are the themes of the statements by the music teacher Ricardo Rizerk, by the musician Fábio Zanon and the guitar teacher Henrique Pinto. The luthier Sergio Abreu comments the details of the handmade instruments that he produces for the group, while the ensemble members reveal details of their musical routine, such as the techniques and accessories they use to tune the guitars.
