Eugênio Leandro: Além das Frentes (261 words)
In 1986 Eugênio Leandro released the album Além das Frentes during a national meeting of medical students in Fortaleza.
Produced by Leandro himself and arranged by Tarcísio José de Lima (except "Inverno," which was arranged by Nara Vasconcelos), Além das Frentes gives listeners a good introduction to Leandro's captivating music and tender vocals.
Leandro's music sometimes echoes a madrigal or chamber sound, e.g., "Divagando" and "Vento Aracati," with Morelenbaum's cello solos being a focal point in the instrumentation.
