“(…) Movimento Violão is becoming the “Mecca” of the guitar world. Bravo!”
“I consider Movimento Violão to be the most important and including project dedicated to our instrument ever developed in Brazil. The leadership of Paulo Martelli makes a huge difference in the projects’ results. Thanks to his wide music knowledge, open mind and receptiveness for all types of high-quality music, an important differential was created around this project. Besides, Movimento Violão has registered in the most professional and competent manner all its guitar concerts, creating a collection of inestimable value for the history of our instrument.”
“Any organization whose goal is to make classical music available to the public acts with heroic altruism. Movimento Violão belongs to that rare category of organizations, whose efforts to ennoble mankind through music deserve my highest praise, as well as my deepest gratitude.”
Movimento Violão is one of the top guitar series in Brazil. It presents some of the world’s leading composers and performers in important venues in São Paulo, recording it with state-of-the-art audio and video equipment for nationwide broadcast. It is a most worthy project, and I am proud to have taken part in it.
