Monday Motivation: Viloteau playing Brouwer

“…music is so naturally a part of us that we cannot be with it, even if we so wished.”
-Boethius (trans. Calvin Martin Bower)

Today we feature Thomas Viloteau performing Brouwer’s Rito de los Orishas. The piece is a bit strange, but was written in 1995. You can hear Brouwer using a lot of the same textures found in his earlier works (ala Elogio de la Danza), but the harmonic language is definitely from his “hyper-romantic” period (generally defined as 1980ish-present).
