Program Notes

Suite do Vale was based on four folk songs from the region of the “Jequitinhonha”, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. These themes were taken from the book Cancioneiro do Jequitinhonha, a compilation of themes from the region by musicologist Daniel Magalhães.

Toque de Mastro (mast music): a festive theme that represents the opening or annunciation of religious festivals of the interior represented by rituals with flagpoles.

Dois Engenho (two mills): a typical representation of the sounds of cane mills moved by oxen.

Veizin Cansado (little old man): represents the calm and quiet life of the little old men who live in the small villages of Brazil.

Carvão Queimou (coal burned), representing the heat and danger of the workers with the handling of the coal kilns.
