The repertoire includes: Triptych by Yasushi Akutagawa, Ciranda Das Sete Notes in C Major for Bassoon by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Symphony No. 25 in G Minor, K. 183 / 173dB by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Yasushi Akutagawa triptych. The triptych for strings was composed in 1953 and consists of 3 movements: Allegro, Berceuse: Andante and Presto. Of these movements, the second movement dedicated to his daughter stands out with a beautiful and simple oriental air based on the use of melodies and harmonies that create a soundscape by the hand of a genre of French origin (Berceuse) whose translation would be “lullaby a sound photograph of the feeling of the country, which was not indifferent to the passage of the 40s of the last century.
Ciranda Das Sete Notes in C Major for Bassoon by Heitor Villa-Lobos. This work had its world premiere in 1933, performed by the Orquestra do Teatro Municipal de Río de Janeiro, directed by the composer himself. The acoustic color of the bassoon with its warm and dark charisma and its multifaceted character of melancholy, sadness and joy is unique. In Villa-Lobos' Ciranda das sete notes, the bassoon can play with its beautiful strength that marks this work in one of the most popular bassoon concertos in history. "The irony and the Brazilian rhythms, on the one hand, the exuberant virtuosity of the solo instrument on the other, give this piece its face."

Symphony No. 25 in G Minor, K. 183 / 173dB by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It was released on October 5, 1773, so with this performance we commemorate the 247 years of creation of this jewel of the Mozart repertoire. Written in the key of G minor, the composer's most personal key, this symphony foreshadows, in a way, the stormy passions that were to more presently inhabit the symphonic thought of Romanticism. Undoubtedly, this symphony signifies a before and after in Mozart's compositional life due to the use of resources inherited from the Mannheim school and the sound visions that the movement known as Sturm und Drang (storm and tension) would make its own.
