Ricardo Januário Solo:
As the name implies, is a solo cello with a different approach to new sounds and new techniques.
The repertoire is diverse, with original songs and original versions of well-known themes from great artists.
Ricardo tries to show the capabilities of his instrument completely solo without effects making the cello sound like we listen to a duo or a trio.
Ricardo´s Neo-Classical compositions and versions try to sensitize people to this type of music and instrumentation.
It can be said in a more classic or erudite language, very modern way.
Ricardo in is live performance has the goal to play to the audience with full love, focus, jokes, smiles, and make them understand his music completely.
He loves to make a intimate atmosphere.
