SÉRGIO & ODAIR ASSAD, guitars

Lobero Theatre, Santa Barbara

Sérgio & Odair Assad, the guitar-playing brothers from São Paulo, began playing Brazilian folk melodies, and transitioned to classical guitar in their teens, training under the most prominent instructors in Brazil. The Washington Post has referred to the brothers as “the best two-guitar team in existence, maybe even in history,” while the Boston Globe has stated they perform with “telepathic unity.”

Their Valentine’s Day concert in 2020 is not to be missed!

PROGRAM:
Works by Giuliani, Albéniz, Piazzolla, Rodrigo, Villa-Lobos, Jobim, Gismonti, and Sérgio Assad

British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor (b.1992) has been described as “the best pianist to come out of

England in the last 50 years,” and “one of the world’s most sought-after young pianists.” One needs only to

listen to him play to understand the accolades are well-deserved; his playing is reminiscent of legendary

pianists that are long gone—Rachmaninoff, Schnabel, Rubinstein, Serkin. His promise was evident from a

young age—the winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of

eleven, and at nineteen invited to perform with the BBC Symphony

Orchestra at the Opening Night of the 2011 BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The upcoming

concert will mark his Santa Barbara recital debut.

SÉRGIO & ODAIR ASSAD

guitarists

Brazilian-born brothers Sérgio and Odair

Assad have set the benchmark for all other

guitarists by creating a new standard of

guitar innovation, ingenuity and expression.

Their exceptional artistry and uncanny

ensemble-playing come from a family

rich in Brazilian musical tradition and studies

under guitarist/lutenist Monina Távora

(1921–2011), a disciple of Andrés Segovia.

In addition to setting new performance

standards, the Assads have played a major

role in creating and introducing new music

made for two guitars. Their virtuosity

has inspired a wide range of composers to

write for them including Astor Piazzolla,

Terry Riley, Radamés Gnattali, Marlos Nobre,

Nikita Koshkin, Roland Dyens, Jorge

Morel, Edino Krieger, and Francisco Mignone.

Now Sérgio Assad is adding to their

repertoire by composing music for the

duo and for various musical partners both

with symphony orchestra and in recitals.

They have worked extensively with such

renowned artists as Yo-Yo Ma, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg,

Romero Lubambo, Paquito

D’Rivera, Gidon Kremer and Dawn Upshaw.

The Assad Brothers began playing the

guitar together at an early age and went

on to study for seven years with Dona Monina.

Their international career began with

a major prize at the 1979 Young Artists

Competition in Bratislava. Odair is based

in Brussels where he teaches at Ecole Supérieure

des Arts, while Sérgio resides in

San Francisco where he is on the faculty of

the SF Conservatory.

The Assad’s repertoire includes original

music composed by Sérgio and his own

take on classic folk and jazz music, as well

as various styles of Latin music. Their classical

repertoire includes transcriptions of

the great Baroque keyboard literature of

Bach, Rameau, and Scarlatti and adaptations

of works by such diverse figures as

Gershwin, Ginastera, and Debussy; thus

making their touring programs a compelling

blend of styles, periods and cultures.

The Assads are also recognized as

prolific recording artists, primarily for the

Nonesuch and GHA labels. In 2001, Nonesuch

Records released Sérgio and Odair

Assad Play Piazzolla, which later won a

Latin Grammy. Their seventh Nonesuch recording,

released in the fall 2007, is called

Jardim Abandonado after a piece by Antonio

Carlos Jobim. It was nominated for

Best Classical Album and Sérgio went on

to win the Latin Grammy for his composition,

Tahiiyya Li Oussilina.

A Nonesuch collaboration with Nadja

Salerno-Sonnenberg in 2000 featured a collection

of pieces based on traditional and

Gypsy folk tunes from around the world.

In 2003, Sérgio Assad wrote a triple concerto

for this trio that has been performed

with the orchestras of São Paulo, Seattle,

and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. In

the summer of 2004, Sérgio and Odair arranged

a special tour featuring three generations

of the Assad family. The family

presented a wide variety of Brazilian music

featuring their father, Jorge Assad [1924-

Photo by Fadi Kheir

2011], on the mandolin and the voice of

their mother, Angelina Assad. GHA Records

has released a live recording and a DVD of

the Assad family live at Brussels’ Palais

des Beaux-Arts. In 2007, the duo performed

Joaquin Rodrigo’s "Concierto Madrigal

for Two Guitars" and Sérgio’s arrangement

of Piazzolla's "Four Seasons of Buenos

Aires" with the Los Angeles Philharmonic

at the Hollywood Bowl. The Assads were

also featured performers on James Newton

Howard’s soundtrack to the movie Duplicity,

starring Julia Roberts and Clive Owen.

In the 2011 and 2012, the brothers toured

a project entitled “De Volta as Raizes”

(Back to Our Roots) featuring Lebanese-

American singer Christiane Karam, percussionist

Jamey Haddad, and composer/

pianist Clarice Assad.

In February 2011, Odair Assad performed

his first solo guitar concert tour,

MASTERSERIES AT THE LOBERO THEATRE • SÉRGIO & ODAIR ASSAD

15


featuring concerts in New York and Montreal.

Sérgio Assad wrote another concerto for

the duo, called “Phases.” It premiered with

the Seattle Symphony in February 2011, as

well. In the meantime, he was nominated,

yet again, for two Latin Classical Grammys

in the Best Classical Composition Category

for his piece for the LA Guitar Quartet and

the Delaware Symphony entitled, “Interchange”

and for “Maracaipe” for the Beijing

Guitar Duo. In the fall of 2011, five of the

members of the Assad family: Sérgio, Odair,

Badi, Clarice, and Carolina joined together

again for another evening of new and favorite

Brazilian works. Their tour included

stops in Qatar, Sweden, Germany, The Netherlands

(to open the “Brazil Festival”) at The

Amsterdam Concertgebouw, and three concerts

in Belgium with a finale at Le Palais

des Beaux Arts. In 2012, Sérgio 's daughter

Clarice Assad followed in the footsteps of

her father and wrote her own double guitar

concerto that premiered at the Pro-Musica

Chamber Orchestra in Columbus, Ohio.

Every November, the brothers continue

their annual residency at the University

of Arizona in Tuscon with support from

the D'Addario Family Foundation. In 2013,

Sérgio and Odair took part in another tour

with the inimitable Paquito D'Rivera , and

recorded a delightful collaboration called

"Dances from the New World". The brothers

collaborated with their old friend, jazz guitarists

Romero Lubambo, in February 2013,

on a tour in North America, where the trio

enjoyed themselves so much they decided

to add more dates in June and plan to head

into the studio to record.

The Assad Brothers collaboration

with cellist Yo-Yo Ma is ongoing; in 2003

their Brazilian record Obrigado Brazil was

released featuring Rosa Passos, Egberto

Gismonti, and Cyro Baptista, and several of

the works arranged on the record by Sérgio

went on to receive Grammy awards in

2004. In 2009, the brothers were featured

on Yo-Yo Ma’s chart topping release, Songs

of Joy & Peace, alongside other guest artists

as diverse as James Taylor and Dave

Brubeck. In the piece “Familia”, Yo-Yo plays

Sérgio’s composition featuring the latter's

mother, Angelina Assad, sister, Badi, and

children; Clarice, Rodrigo, and Carolina.

The release topped both the classical and

the mainstream Billboard charts and won

a Grammy for Best Classical Crossover. In

November 2015, Ma and the Assads will be

creating a new project with musicians from

Brazil, Russia, India, and China that will

first tour North America and then Europe in

the spring of 2016.

In 2015, Sérgio and Odair celebrate

their 50th anniversary as a duo. Their first

ever performance together was in the fall of

1965 on a Brazilian television show called

Boussaude, where they played with famed

choro composer Jacob de Bandolin. They

will start with a 27-city tour in Brazil followed

by ten more in North America, highlighted

by a celebration at the 92nd Street

Y in New York that will feature their dear

friends Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and Paquito

D'Rivera. The Guitar Foundation of

America awards the brothers with its Lifetime

Achievement Awards in June 2015.

NOTES

on the program

By Howard Posner

The 18th century transformed both the

guitar’s body and its position in the musical

world. In 1700 it was still lute-like, with light

construction, pairs of strings and a bright

sound. It had a substantial repertory of

solo music composed for its idiosyncratic

stringing and tuning, but was also used as

an ensemble instrument along with, or in

place of, the harpsichord, organ, and other

members of the lute family to improvise

harmonies over a “continuo” bass line.

By 1800, the guitar had six single

strings, and a heftier build that supported

heavier strings: it was a leaner version

of the instrument we know today. At the

same time, continuo playing was dying out,

with composers instead writing out parts

for specific instruments, and the softer

instruments were dying out as well, as art

music moved out of drawing rooms and

into concert halls that demanded greater

loudness. None of these developments

boded well for the guitar as a medium for

serious music, and by Beethoven’s day it

was unusual to see a guitar in concert.

The guitar made occasional forays into

the musical mainstream, and no one took

it further than MAURO GIULIANI. He

spent many years in Vienna, where he

became what we would now call an A-list

performer. It helped that he also played

cello, and indeed was in the orchestra

for the 1813 premiere of Beethoven’s

Seventh Symphony. After his death, a

guitar magazine called The Giulianiad was

published for a brief time in London.

Giuliani composed three concertos

for guitar and duet sonatas for guitar and

violin or flute, but he and his contemporary

guitarist-composers seemed to recognize

that the guitar’s best instrumental

partner was another guitar. The Variazioni

Concertanti, published posthumously in

1830, consists of a dramatic introduction,

theme, six variations and coda. In the fifth

variation, the first guitar part is marked

“con suoni armonici ossia flautati,” (“with

harmonic or flutelike sounds”), indicating

that the notes are to be produced by

touching the strings at nodal points

(typically over the fifth, seventh and

twelfth frets), which subdivides the string

into equal sections vibrating in opposite

directions, producing a soft, chimey sound

that guitarists now call “harmonics.”

Apparently that terminology had not

become standard in the 1820’s, and neither

had the notation: Giuliani lets the player

find the nodal points, while more modern

notation would indicate at what fret the

nodal could be found.

ISAAC ALBÉNIZ was a legendary

child prodigy on the piano whose

early compositions were largely in the

homogenized “salon” style fashionable

all over Europe. They included, he later

wrote, “a few things that are not completely

worthless.” As he matured he became a

Spanish nationalist composer, inspired by the

rhythms of Spain and its sounds. Although

nearly all his music is for piano, and he never

wrote a note of music for the guitar, he came

to write for the piano as if it were, as Tom

Lehrer would put it, an 88-string guitar. It is

no accident that much of his music is played

more often in transcriptions for guitar than in

Isaac Albéniz

its original form.

“Córdoba” is from Chants d’Espagne,

a five-movement suite published in 1898

with a French title that may have been

meant to attract buyers outside of Spain.

It is a picture of night in the Andalusian

city. At the top of the piano score, Albeniz

wrote, “In the silence of the night, the rustle

of jasmine-scented breezes is interrupted

by the sound of guzlas [Moorish guitar-like

instruments] accompanying serenades

and spreading in the air ardent melodies

and notes as sweet as the swaying of the

palms high overhead.”

“El Puerto” is from his collection of

12 piano pieces called Iberia, published in

four installments between 1905 and 1909.

The title refers to the town of El Puerto

de Santa Maria, near Cádiz on Spain’s

southeast coast. The piece is a dance

called a zapateado, still popular in the

Hispanic world, which consists of quick

stamping movements.

The Argentine ASTOR PIAZZOLLA was

legendary as a virtuoso of the bandoneon (a

relative of the accordion) and as a pioneer

of the “new tango,” a blend of traditional

tango with elements of polyphony, jazz, and

contemporary classical styles. In 1939 the

18-year-old Piazzolla joined the prominent

Buenos Aires tango orchestra led

by the bandoneonist Anibal Troilo, for

whom he played second or third bandoneon

and piano, and also did arrangements. By

1944 they parted ways because Piazzolla,

who was studying composition with

Alberto Ginastera and immersing himself

in Stravinsky and Bartók, was developing a

style less suitable for dancing, which Troilo

saw as commercially unviable. Indeed,

Piazzolla virtually abandoned tango and

the bandoneon and pursued becoming a

classical composer by going to Paris to

study with the legendary Nadia Boulanger,

who told him that his tangos were where

his identity lay.

Piazzolla and Troilo stayed in touch,

Troilo made recordings of Piazzolla’s

Joaquín Rodrigo

music, and the two of them reunited to

record bandoneon duets. When Troilo died

in in 1975, Piazzolla composed the Suite

Troileana and recorded it with a group that

included bandoneon, violin, guitar, piano,

bass and drums. The opening movement is

titled “Bandoneon” because it began with

an extended bandoneon solo. The lively

second movement is named for Troilo’s

widow Zita.

JOAQUÍN RODRIGO came to be the

quintessential Spanish composer of the 20th

century, and one of the most famous men in

the nation. His wife remarked in 1981 that

off the top of her head she knew of seven

streets in Spain, and some others in Spanish

America, named after him, which is a large

number for someone who was still very much

alive. His tuneful music embodied the ideal

of casticismo, a word that can be translated

as “traditionalism,” but also “authenticity”

and “purity.” It denotes music firmly rooted

in tradition, an alternative to the various

“modernisms” of the century that captivated

composers, if not audiences. Without ever

feeling a need to seek new directions or

extend the limits of music, Rodrigo found

a style that was very much his own, as

individual as any. “Though my cup is small,

still I drink from my own cup,” he said.

Heitor Villa-Lobos

Rodrigo may not have embraced all

the trends of his era, but he did not ignore

them, and his music always sounds like it

was written in the 20th century. His reliance

on traditional tonality meant that he could

get tremendous mileage out of dissonance,

which has much more shock value when it

is surrounded by consonance. The most

characteristic sound in his palette, much in

evidence in his 1960 guitar duet Tonadilla,

is the interval of the minor second, or

semitone—an adjacent white and black key

on the piano produce this interval—which

produces a throbbing clang that can be

poignant, fierce or comical, depending on

how it comes up. He could achieve a sassy,

biting quality reminiscent of Shostakovich

when the mood struck him. He wrote the

Tonadilla, which he described as “evoking

the tonadillas of the eighteenth century,” for

the guitar duo of Ida Presti and Alexander

Lagoya.

HEITOR VILLA-LOBOS became the

most influential Brazilian composer of

the 20th century by melding the music

of Brazilian daily life with the European

classical tradition, and the choros was the

medium in which he did it most obviously.

Chôro, Portuguese for "cry," was the

name given to a style of music played by

Brazilian street musicians (called chorões).

Villa-Lobos used the title between 1920

and 1929 for 16 compositions informed by

Brazilian folklore, creating what he called

a brasilofonia. He scored them for forces

as small as a single guitar and as large as

chorus and orchestra. Number Five, originally

for piano, is subtitled “Brazilian soul.”

Brazilian composers since Villa-

Lobos have followed in his nationalist/

internationalist footsteps. ANTONIO CARLOS

JOBIM is known for making the Brazilian

bossa nova style an international sensation.

The 1962 recording of his “Girl From Ipanema,”

featuring the American jazz saxophonist

Stan Getz, became a major hit on its way to

becoming a cultural cliché. In 1967 Jobim

recorded it again with Frank Sinatra.

But a very different side of Jobim’s art

is shown in his music for the 1971 movie A

Casa Assassinada (“The Murdered House”),

a story of an elegant family’s decline and

disintegration. Jobim’s suite (which uses

Egberto Gismonti

Sérgio Assad

the title of the novel on which the movie

is based, Crônica da Casa Assassinada, is

in four movements, three of which, “Train

to Cordisburgo,” “Abandoned Garden”—

the music accompanies a scene in which

a couple make love while a woman spies

on them, so the title may have a double

meaning—and “Miracles and Clowns,”

are instrumental. The suite’s second

movement, “Crying Heart,” was originally a

song about the loneliness of a man bereft

of his lover, sung by Jobim.

EGBERTO GISMONTI, a noted performer

on the piano and ten-string guitar, has roots

in both Brazilian and more international

mainstream jazz, and seems to have

absorbed most of the more serious strains

in modern popular music into a noted

example of what is called “Brazilian fusion.”

“Palhaço” is Portuguese for “clown,” and the

piece seems to depict a rather thoughtful

one. “Baião malandro” (“baiao rascal”) is

based on a Brazilian dance. The original

version was recorded on Gismonti’s 1977

album Carmo.

SÉRGIO ASSAD’s Suite Brasileira is a

song sandwiched between two dances.

The opening “Baiao” and closing “Samba”

are full of drive and virtuosity, with the

affecting “Cançao” (“Song”) a contrasting

moment of comparative respite.
