Rio de Janeiro is renowned as one of the world's most alluring and sophisticated cities of exciting high life, but beyond its veil of glamour, the city discreetly conceals a hidden world of history and tradition, artistic treasures, and a solid cultural inheritance unknown to most outsiders. And now, for the first time, this book opens the doors to the great private residences of Rio and its surroundings, giving the reader a privileged view into one of the most alluring places in all of the Americas. Twenty-one of Rio's most captivating homes and their gardens, representative of over 300 years, from colonial times through the monarchy and to the present, grace the pages of Private Rio. While the book illustrates the whole range of Rio's living styles, from townhouses in the city to penthouses high above it, and from beach houses to lavish country homes, each one has been chosen not only because of its obvious physical charm or beauty, but also because it has played a role in the history or in the lives of important personalities of Rio's social, economic, or political evolution.

Rio has spent years preparing to host the world during the Olympic games--but they didn't prepare for this... Rio de Janeiro, Brazil--home to beautiful white-sand beaches, gorgeous women, stunning natural beauty, and the world's largest Carnival celebration--knows how to throw a party. So it's a natural choice to host the biggest spectacles in sports--the World Cup and the Olympics. To ensure that the games go off without a hitch, the organizers turn to Jack Morgan, the unflappable head of the renowned international security and consulting firm Private. But when events are this exclusive, someone's bound to get left off the guest list. Two years after the action nearly spilled from the field to the stands during soccer's championship match, Jack is back in Rio for the Olympics. But before the cauldron is even lit, the only thing more intense than the competition is the security risks. When prominent clients he's supposed to be protecting disappear, and bodies mysteriously start to litter the streets, Jack is drawn deep into the heart of a ruthless underworld populated by disaffected residents trying to crash the world's biggest party. As the opening ceremonies near, with the world watching in horror, Jack must sprint to the finish line to defuse a threat that could decimate Rio and turn the games from a joyous celebration into a deadly spectacle.

This resource is an interesting look at how European culture, particularly European music, related to the social and cultural experiences of the residents of ninteenth-century Rio de Janeiro. The focus is on how Cariocas (residents of Rio de Janeiro) responded to and often imitated different musical styles imported from Europe. After introducing the local musical setting and showing how musical life in imperial Rio de Janeiro reflected Parisian models, the author discusses the importation of operatic repertory, the use of German classical music as the basis of an elite social class, the role of European music in Brazilian theater, and finally, the emergence of a "national" music. Overall, this study reveals European music as a powerful force in the internal processes of political, cultural, social, and ethnic negotiations during the 19th century government of Emperor Pedro II. Musicologists, Latin American historians, and anyone with an interest in urban studies will find much of interest in this book.

An insider’s tour through the exceptional contemporary interiors of Rio, a vibrant creative hub and one of the hottest destinations on the planet. Rio de Janeiro is an iconic city of vibrant contrasts: youthful energy and grand traditions, luxuriant vegetation and innovative architecture. Its unique lifestyle is diverse and culturally rich, and the city is home to some remarkable modernist and contemporary homes alongside aging colonial gems. Lenny Niemeyer opens the doors of an insider’s Rio through a tour of over twenty-five private homes, most presented here for the first time: a colonial-era mansion in Rio’s artistic quarter surrounded by lush gardens; a private apartment with stunning views and a fabulous collection of modern art; sleek contemporary houses that blur the boundaries of interior and exterior—featuring warm wood-based design, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, shaded swimming pools, and furniture from Brazilian modernist designers such as Oscar Niemeyer and Sérgio Rodrigues. Eyes turn toward Rio as it prepares to host the soccer World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016. This insider’s visit will be a revelation for those who already know the city and for anyone seeking to discover its rich design heritage, cuisine, and unique way of life.
