This group is best known of the violinist Kleber Vogel who was in the 1st Quaterna Requiem album. He is probably the 2nd best-known South-American violinist in progressive music after Marcus Viana of Sagrado fame. He writes almost all music so perhaps this album can be considered his "child". However, the result is very much a team play and the instruments have a nice balance. The music is very classical in nature and floats naturally. It very much resembles the style of the already mentioned QR. According to the liner notes classical music, jazz and rock have been the inspirations for the compositions. There are not any vocals and it works perfectly with this kind of music. Even if the violin is the lead instrument of the classical instruments, the other classical instruments (flute, oboe, bassoon, cello) by guest musicians are a wonderful contribution as well. Another example from the very interesting South-American scene!

Conclusion: For lovers of classical progressive for sure!
