To end this year's Brazil Week, we are delighted to welcome back the King's Brazil Ensemble for a special performance of A Noiva do Condutor (the Tram Conductor's Sweetheart), by the Brazilian composer Noel Rosa.

This radio opereta from 1930’s Brazil is a comedy of manners, playing with hypocritical social roles in Rio de Janeiro in the beginning of the 20th Century. Noel Rosa, a well known Brazilian composer, created some magnificent music for this play, with popular genres of Brazilian music, such as samba, marches, and fox-trots.

This arrangement for string orchestra, flute, clarinet and soloists was written by Stefan Metzer for King’s Brazil Ensemble.

The Ensemble is dedicated to the study and practice of a Brazilian and Latin America repertoire for string orchestra (eventually with soloists or guest musicians).

The ensemble was created in 2015 and had his debut in a performance at the Brazilian Embassy in London, in March of that year.

The members of the ensemble, mostly, are or were music students at King's College. The creation of the ensemble was an initiative of Dr. Vinicius Mariano de Carvalho, who is also the director of the group.
