Hello everybody!

I'm new around here, and I love this site, very nice idea! I have in my iPod TONS of recordings from here :).

I'm a fan of Ernesto Nazareth, I think he is a true genious! Unfortunally is almost impossible to find the sheet music, perhaps Lizstsztil or other ppl have some of them to share. Although they're public domain I can find only few pieces at IMSLP.ORG and some avaiable pieces are blocked(???).

cheers

Last I checked you can find all of his works in pdf here:

http://www.ernestonazareth.com.br/a_obr ... php?area=1

Its a good site. I also like playing Nazareth.

I believe there is no copyright on his music anymore.

Hello guys!

After 5 months without recording I'm back.

This is one of Nazareth's most profound pieces, called Mágoas ("Sorrows"), and subtitled "medidation". A lot of Chopin influences, and very different from his Brazilian Tangos and Waltzes. This piece has never been published, but you can see a modern edition of it here:
http://www.ernestonazareth.com.br/pdfs/magoas.pdf

Best wishes,
Alexandre

Ok, this is up, Alexandre. Sounded good as usual. And you're right - this one is different than a lot of the others.

I liked the piece and you play it well! It's always fascinating to discover a rare find, isn't it? Definitely different from other Brazilian music I've heard.

Thanks for the comments Monica and 88man.
88man, yes it's always great to discover new interesting pieces.

Best wishes,

Not your 'typical' Nazareth piece indeed... But none the worse for it ! A real charmer, though IMO a bit too long for its content. The ending is very daring and unusual.
I have to say the anodyne digital sound (which does not normally bother me much in your recordings) does this piece no favours. How great it would sound on a real instrument.... But as splendidly played as always !

Hi Chris,
Thank you for your remarks. I agree that the ending is very daring and unusual. It is a very ellaborate piece in many ways, either harmonically or pianistically.

I also agree that this piece must be recorded on an acoustic piano. However the experiences I have done with my Kawai don't turn up well. Maybe I'll find better ways to record it, and make a debut eventually.

Best,
Alexandre

Dear folks,
Today I've recorded Nazareth's great Polonaise. It has been recorded only once and few people know it. Hope you like it.
If you want the score, there is an edition of it reviewed by my: http://www.ernestonazareth.com.br/pdfs/poloneza.pdf

Best wishes,
Alexandre

This is up, Alexandre. I like this one, despite it being a tad on the long side. However, the digital piano does it no favors - this one really needs to be played on a 'giant' grand. Maybe some day you can get your hands on one and re-record this.

Also (a gentle reminder), common courtesy dictates that members who regularly post recordings should also comment on other members' recordings. (I'm going to tell other members this too) It simply makes our forum and site more lively and fun.

I had the same points but forgot to post. IMO, this piece does outstay its welcome, I find it rather bloated and repetitive, even though it has its moments. I found the digital sound here positively off-putting in some places. I don't normally have that with your recordings, I guess it's that this piece just cries for more real sonority than the jolly dances we usuall have from Nazareth. Your rock-solid and razor-sharp polonaise rhythm is fantastic though !

Hello Monica and Chris,

Thank you for the comments, either positive and negative. I did think it would sound too long, however this is the version with cuts. Nazareth wrote a good deal of other repetitions.

When I get to record his complete works it will be undoubtedly recorded on a piano grand in studio, but for now I don't have access to one (Brasília doesn't have a studio with a good piano). Meanwhile I'm doing the best I can on my Kurzweil. (The acoustics of my living room aren't good for recording on my Kawai upright and I haven't found a solution for this yet).

Seven years ago I played this piece in a television program, which had a steinway grand availble. It's on youtube, if you'd like to watch it:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-lAHBElrgM

Back then my interpretation of it was more rushed and I could only play one take, so it's full of errors.

Monica, I'll increase my participation in other posts, thanks for the reminder.

Best wishes,
Alexandre

For all its little slips (none of them really disturbing), I like this one a lot better. Here is the sense of danger and mad abandon that a piece like this needs, as well as the full-throated sound. I do think in both versions you take the secondary section too slow to keep it interesting.
