Born in 1932 in Rio de Janeiro, Rogério Duprat, began studying cello at the early 50’s, a period that integrates the State Symphony Orchestra. In 1955 moves to São Paulo, becoming conductor and composer of the Symphony Orchestra. In the early 60’s, funds the classical avant-garde movement ‘Música Nova’, alongside Júlio Medaglia, Damiano Cozzella, Régis DupratGilberto Mendes.

still on the 60’s, travels to Europe, where he studied in France, with the composer Pierre Boulez, and in Germany with Karlheinz Stockhausen. (!)

Back in Brazil, he dedicated to creating experimental pieces on computer, with Damiano Cozzella once more. At the University of Brasilia, where he taught, Duprat was part of happenings and manifestations of random music.

Still on the sixties, he began working on several film soundtracks and is from there that he initiates contact with popular music, most especially with Os Mutantes!

Let’s go to our record:

When asked of his first solo foray, the conductor is emphatic:

‘I do not really like that. In fact, they forced a lot. For starters, that picture, made ​​me climb on the table to beat photograph … Something so silly, naive, bitchy! Anyway, I ended up doing because I wanted to make the album, has some things I like. But it suffered from the fact that the record company force me a bit on some international music repertoire, which was a bit more commercialized. Within the record company, they did not understand things well…’

Launched in the first half of 1968, riding on the musical-wave Tropicalia, the album was a commercial failure and saw over the decades to become a holy grail of all Tropicalista production from 67 to 69. Often compared to a tupiniquim George Martin, Rogério Duprat has his own vision of what you expect from American standards, pop, sambas, bossa, psychedelia and much more!

The Maestro

The Maestro

Both scholar and pop, coming from the leading arranger of Brazilian music, certainly the most free and inventive, the Tropicalia pope! The ‘IM’ highlights: ‘Flying’, roaming a psych landscape with reverse fuzz and an oniric feel. And ‘Quem Será?’, a samba from the 40’s in a luxury cinematic collage, amazing!

As if that were not enough, the album also features the always welcome participation of Os Mutantes in four tracks, wandering through all aspects of the disc. Bonum Iter!
