Badgerow, Justin

The debut Divine Art album from American pianist Justin Badgerow is a program of exotic dance rhythms, sensual textures and colors from four Brazilian composers together with the exquisite Saudades do Brasil of Milhaud. Highly influenced by traditional and indigenous music and the landscapes of Brazil, this is music of infectious delight, and includes both well-known works from Villa-Lobos and sparkling miniatures from Mignone, Gondim and Guarnieri. Justin Badgerow obtained a Doctorate in Musical Arts from the University of Colorado after earning bachelor's and master's degrees at the Universities of Texas and Central Florida. He serves on various important committees and boards and is currently Associate Professor of Music at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania. A champion of Latin-American music he has performed as a soloist throughout the USA and in Mexico, Brazil and South Africa. He has also enjoyed much success in chamber music collaborations. In this, his first solo recording, he demonstrates a close affinity with the music, imbuing every track with outstanding musicianship.
