One viola turns to drones. The other, clicks plucks. Pinherio’s piano responds with metallic chords, flight runs, and rapid interior pizzicato. The music then glides into some of the most active and spirited exchanges I have heard Rodrigues engaged in.

The finale of this extraordinary concert is full of emotions and shines with post-free jazz light. The search for the last sound captivates with its acoustic beauty - Biliana sends little drones, Ernesto polishes the strings, and Rodrigo counts white and black keys.
