Ricardo Peres Music

In 1993, the brilliant Brazilian concert pianist Ricardo Peres recorded a CD of Latin American music as a fundraising/marketing project for Red Deer Public Library's Literacy & Legacy Expansion Fundraising Project. The CD, entitled The Dance of the White Indian, is available from RDPL on the Internet.  This is the CD that launched the Heitor Villa-Lobos Website.

Ricardo's second CD is entitled "Odeon", and includes music by Nazareth, Guarnieri and Ginastera.

Ricardo's next CD contained music by Brahms, Beethoven and Bach - it was released in 1999 on the Port-Royal label.

His newest CD, also on the Port-Royal label, is entitled Voyages.
