Two Original Albums

Orfeu da Conceição (Orpheus of the Conception) is a stage play with music in three acts by Vinicius de Moraes and music by Antônio Carlos Jobim. It premiered in 1956 in Rio de Janeiro. The play became the basis for the films Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus, 1959) and Orfeu (1999), and for the musicals Orfeu (2010) and Black Orpheus (2014). In 1958, Juscelino Kubitschek, president of Brazil, asked Vinícius de Moraes and Antônio Carlos Jobim to compose a symphonic suite to be used at the opening ceremony of a city that was being built in the middle of Brazil to be the new capital. Jobim and de Moraes spent some time at the new city before the inauguration to check out the place and get inspiration. This is Brasília - Sinfonia da Alvorada (1961), recorded in the studio in November 1960. Jobim conducts the orchestra with the participation of Radamés Gnattali (piano), Vinícius de Moraes (words, poetry), Elizete Cardoso (voice), and Os Cariocas (voices).
