The Berkeley Choro Ensemble–flutist Jane Lenoir, clarinetist/saxophonist Harvey Wainapel, percussionist Brian Rice, and guitarist Ricardo Peixoto–celebrates the release of its album, The View from Here, Saturday, Feb. 10, at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Albany (1501 Washington St.). But first the quartet visits KPFA and “The Hear and Now” to play its buoyant interpretations of choro pieces by such Brazilian composers as Ivanildo Maciel, Mário Sève, Cesar Camargo, Mariano Domingos Teixeira, and Israel Bueno de Almeida. Choro (“shoro”) evolved in Brazil in the late 19th century, bringing together the music of Brazil’s European immigrants and the native music of Brazil’s indigenous and African-Brazilian population. Tune in to find out just what that sounds like. Derk Richardson hosts, and Tony Ferro engineers.
