Composer, singer, guitarist, writer and political activist Caetano Veloso is one of the most influential artists in South America. The Brazilian's latest album, Abraçaço, fuses Tropicália and the indie pop of contemporary Rio with the help of Banda Cê, a trio of young musicians. Veloso is one of the leading figures of Tropicalismo, a political and musical movement that also included Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes and Tom Zé. At 71, his latest album incorporates the style he helped invent along with swirling melodies, industrial noises and electro-acoustic rock 'n' roll. Learn More

Augustin Hadelich, violin *
With his poetic style and dazzling technique, Augustin Hadelich has established himself as a rising star among the new generation of violinists. Winner of the 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant and gold medallist of the 2006 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, his versatility across the entire spectrum of the violin repertory is astounding. About his recent recital at the Frick Collection, The New York Times wrote, “Mr. Hadelich stands out amid gifted young violinists for his prodigious technique, gorgeous tone and the ability to deliver well-known works with a distinctive interpretive flair.”
