World premiere recordings of six new pieces by five different composers that were written for hornist Thomas Bacon and pianist Caio Pagano. The title comes from the major work on the disc: Trio “a carta de Pero Vaz de Caminha” for horn violin and piano. Inspired by the writing of Pero Vaz de Caminha, the secretary and keeper of the journal chronicling the events of the first Portuguese expedition to Brazil in the year 1500, the Trio describes the explorers’ first sighting of the land and its people. The Trio was written by Almeida Prado in the year 2000 upon the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Portuguese discovery of Brazil. Hornist Thomas Bacon’s work in the U.S., Europe, South America, and Asia has placed him in the highest echelon of hornists worldwide. Bacon was founder and general editor of The Complete Hornist, a very popular and successful series of music for horn and horn ensemble published in 1987.
