BRAZIL & TMA: André Mehmari Trio to perform at Toledo Museum of Art January 20


The André Mehmari Trio will perform at the Toledo Museum of Art’s GlasSalon at 3 p.m. on January 20, 2019. The Brazilian pianist and composer will be joined by Neymar Dias on double bass and Sérgio Reze on drums. 

Mehmari brings forth his piano trio with a new recording, Na esquina do Clube com o Sol na Cabeça / Sunbakeheaded at Clube da Esquina, devoted to the Brazilian recording artists who became known by, Clube da Esquina; the group released an album of the same name in 1972.  He sees their work, led by Milton Nascimento, as the “utmost representation of humanism” in Brazilian music.

André Mehmari


A longtime admirer of this “metaphysical club,” Mehmari’s trio explores, extends, and refines its work into new and compelling interpretations, drawing from diverse musical currents— pop, folk music, bossa nova, jazz, and avant-garde classical. Alongside Mehmari’s piano are his drummer of over twenty years, Sérgio Reze, and the superlative talent of bassist Neymar Dias. The result is fluent, soulful, good-humored music that will touch the hearts and souls of people from every part of the globe.


Born in 1977, Mehmari began studying music with his mother at age five. By age ten he had already taught himself improvisation and wrote his first compositions. He entered São Paulo State University in 1995 and won its competition for original Brazilian popular music. Two years later, the same honor was awarded to him in classical music. In 1998, he won the first national Prêmio VISA de MPB competition, the most important award for popular music in Brazil; and, in 2007, won the Carlos Gomes award in classical music.


This is Mehmari’s third performance at the Toledo Museum of Art. Tickets are $10 for members, $15 for nonmembers, and $7.50 for students and military personnel. Visit toledomuseum.org to purchase tickets. Great Performances is supported in part by the Dorothy MacKenzie Price Fund.
