2017 release from clarinet superstar Anat Cohen. On Outra Coisa, a duo date with 7-String guitarist Marcello Gonçalves, Cohen delves deep into the music of celebrated Brazilian composer Moacir Santos. While Santos was an accomplished orchestrator and arranger (he later wrote music for films), it was the connection between his music and the guitar which was at the genesis of this recording. "I've always loved the rich orchestral sounds of Moacir's compositions but could not imagine how to transfer his large ensemble sound into my solo guitar. Reading Moacir Santos's scores directly from his songbook, I was surprised how perfectly it fit the 7-string guitar, in the original key, as if the music was composed for the instrument," says Gonçalves.
