A Lenda do Curupira

Curupira is a character from the Brazilian mythology. He is said to be the protector of the animals and the forest and attacks everyone who doesn't treat nature with respect. He's a dwarf-like figure with fiery red hair and his feet turned backwards thus creating confusion about his whereabouts.

The piece is a symphonic poem retelling this legend and is highly influenced by Brazilian popular music. It was written for the Swiss National Brass Band Championships in Montreux and received further performances in New Zealand, China, the Netherlands, Austria and Germany.
