The legendary Pixinguinha (Alfredo da Rocha Vianna Jr., 1898-1973) was both a founding father of samba and a superb choro flutist-composer. Many consider him the greatest choro musician of all time. Pixinguinha wrote many of the most famous standards in the genre, including "Carinhoso" (Affectionate), "Rosa," and "Sofre Porque Queres" (You Suffer Because You Want To). He was a pioneer in taking Brazilian music overseas, touring Europe and South America.
