Work selected by the XVIII Panorama da Música Brasileira Atual and debuted in 27/11/2016 by the Woodwind Orchestra of UFRJ, regency of Marcelo Jardim, Sala Cecilia Meireles, Rio de Janeiro.
Três Relevos (three landscapes) are inspired by three different geographical formations and the expressive contents associated to them. The movements are executed without stop. Escarpments are repetitive, full of slopes and edges that limit them. In the Hills there end the sharp tips, and the elevations are more linear and gradually ascending. The Plains where we arrive are flat but swept by winds, hence the static agitation. The work is a kind of painting of these landscapes.
