GLACÉIA AND TOBIAS
Collaborating on songs and scores, Glacéia and Tobias enjoy fusing different styles of music from all over the world. This particular rendition of "I’ll Get You" began with the spontaneous idea to use Carmen’s Habanera as the underlying motive. The task of bending an upbeat Beatles classic into the orchestral textures of the Habanera became a worthy challenge.
