Schottish-Choro  (H. Villa-Lobos)

In 2019, Fabricio Mattos and composer/filmmaker Bernardo Simões, both London residents, met in Rio de Janeiro for one day and decided to use the opportunity to record this video at the historic Museu da República. Due to the 'impromptu' way this recording was made, Fabricio didn't have his guitar at the time, so an old Giannini guitar from Bernardo's collection was used for this unedited performance of a classic of Brazilian guitar music.
