Cinemusica and the Carnaval Trilogy

Rio de Janeiro, 1916—French composer Darius Milhaud, a member of "Le groupe des Six," arrives in Brazil as a cultural attaché for Ambassador Paul Claudel. It was a Sunday of carnival, and Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos had been asked by the government to show the diversity of Brazilian music to Milhaud.

After several days of traveling through the streets of Rio, they went to the Odeon Cinema where native composer Ernesto Nazareth was playing the piano for the silent films. "After I heard the music of Nazareth, I finally understood the meaning of Brazilian soul," said Milhaud to Villa-Lobos.

Cinemusica and the Carnaval Trilogy revisits this historical encounter, which in a spontaneous way became the foundation for a new and unique physiognomy of Brazilian music.
