OSPA and Guests

An exquisite album of brazilian music. Under Evandro Matté’s artistic direction and conducting, “OSPA and Guests” explores compositions from the contemporaneous Arthur Barbosa, Dimitri Cervo, Fernandos Deddos, João Guilherme Ripper and Radamés Gnattali, with a superb soloist line-up formed by Douglas Gutjahr (marimba), Emerson Kretschmer (violin) and the Porto Alegre Quintet of Metals. Released in 2021, this was the first album produced by Symphony Orchestra of Porto Alegre (OSPA) in 20 years. Considered by the public opinion as an remarkable return of OSPA’s discography production, “OSPA and Guests” was awarded at Açorianos Music Award 2022 only with top grades: “Album of the Year”, “Best Album” in the classical category and “Best Composer” for Arthur Barbosa.
