Here is one of these melodies that everybody knows (at least I know I've heard it before) without knowing where it comes from (yeah, Brazil, obviously
). Is this an original composition by Abreu, or did he just adapt an existing song/dance for piano ?
Your clarity and rhythmic precision are amazing, and technically this can not be bettered. All the same I find this sounding rather dry and digital and would have wished for a bit more swing and languour. It sort of breezes by, as it were. Of course this is not the kind of piece to make a heavy meal of, but I feel that more could be done with it. Just a matter of personal taste though.
