By Luiz Henrique Yudo. Amazônia (1993) is originally scored for string quartet and is here transcribed by Michael Bonaventure.


Concerning the organ transcription, Michael Bonaventure writes:
In adapting Amazônia for the organ in 2013 I chose not to attempt to imitate the way in which strings might deliver this music, but instead to exploit the near-percussive qualities of the more powerful, trumpet-like reed stops generally found on organs. This imbues the piece with a consistently hard, bright timbre and generates a body of sound entirely in keeping with the urgent insistence and excitement of the music.
