Paul Taub and Jovino Santos Neto
The heralded and influential Brazilian composer, pianist, and flutist Hermeto Pascoal has penned dozens of unpublished works for flute. Pianist Jovino Santos Neto and flutist Paul Taub bring these works to life in a unique concert presentation.
Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Seattle–based pianist, flutist, and composer Jovino Santos Neto continues to blur the boundaries between classical music, jazz, and indigenous Brazilian music. A member of Hermeto Pascoal’s legendary band from 1977 to 1992, Santos Neto built a solid reputation as a creative and inspired musician, producer, and arranger.
New York-born Paul Taub plays an active role in the Seattle contemporary music scene as a soloist and flutist of the Seattle Chamber Players. With a background in classical music, his interest and repertoire encompasses styles from the baroque to the avant-garde.
Taub and Santos Neto have collaborated frequently as colleagues on the faculty of Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. This program features highlights of their work together in a sampling of music by Hermeto Pascoal and Brazilian composers who both influenced and have been inspired by him.
