"Whether the music is private (Manhosamente [Slyly]) or outgoing, simple or virtuosic, Rabello, whose family was close to Gnattali, tosses it all off with conviction and a sure rhythmic sense. The engineering is first-rate, as usual from this label. This is worth a gamble: You’ll know quickly whether or not it paid off."

About the album

An eclectic musician, that’s for sure. The music of Radamés Gnattali (1906-1988) might disturb a purist, but if you are free from prejudices and have your ears well opened, you will discover a fabulous craftsman, a great inventor of memories, a relentless experimenter. In this new album, entirely dedicated to the music of Gnattali, the Brazilian pianist Luís Rabello brings an historically valuable release to the international audience, with the world premiere recordings of several compositions. The album is a portrait of Gnattali's piano music, with heart warming melodies, dazzling virtuosity and a blend of Brazilian musical flavours where Classical music meets Jazz, Bossa-Nova, Samba and Choro.
'Moto Contínuo' is het nieuwe soloalbum van de Braziliaanse pianist Luís Rabello dat geheel in het teken staat van de muziek van Radamés Gnattali (1906-1988). Gnattali begon zijn carrière als klassiek pianist en werd beschouwd als één van de grootste virtuozen van zijn generatie. Een groot deel van zijn leven was hij componist, arrangeur en dirigent bij het Nationaal Radio-orkest in Rio de Janeiro. Het album is een portret van Gnattali's pianomuziek met wereldpremière-opnames van de Braziliaanse meester. Een historisch waardevolle release voor het internationale publiek, met hartverwarmende melodieën, duizelingwekkende virtuositeit en een mix van Braziliaanse stijlen waar klassieke muziek jazz, bossa-nova, samba en choro ontmoet.
Ein eklektischer Musiker, so viel ist sicher. Die Musik von Radamés Gnattali (1906-1988) mag Puristen verstören, doch wer frei von Vorurteilen ist und seine Ohren gut öffnet, wird einen fabelhaften Handwerker, einen großen Erfinder von Erinnerungen und einen unermüdlichen Experimentalisten entdecken. Mit diesem neuen Album, das ganz der Musik von Gnattali gewidmet ist, stellt der brasilianische Pianist Luís Rabello dem internationalen Publikum eine historisch wertvolle Veröffentlichung mit den Weltersteinspielungen mehrerer Kompositionen vor. Das Album ist ein Porträt von Gnattalis Klaviermusik, mit herzerwärmenden Melodien, schillernder Virtuosität und einer Mischung aus brasilianischem Musikgeschmack, wo Klassik auf Jazz, Bossa-Nova, Samba und Choro trifft.

Luís Rabello is to be commended. Here's a lot of high-quality, largely orginal and thouroughly idiomatic music,superbly played.
