Dear folks,
I'm uploading the 41st rare Nazareth: the waltz Celestial. It has many moods, which makes it a full dish for the pianist. Hope you like.

Cheers,
Alexandre Dias

Very nice job, as usual Alexandre. I like the 'waltzy' part of this piece a lot. And the very beginning - those repeated notes - that sounds just like something I can't think of right this second - some Mozart piece or maybe Clementi. Oh well...it'll come to me. Anyway, this is up. :)

Hello folks,
Today I've recorded a simple polka that Ernesto Nazareth composed when he was 21 (1884). It's called "Não me Fujas Assim" (Don't run away from me like that).

Best wishes to everyone,
Alexandre

Only a Brazilian could write a Polka like that :D

What an immensely likable piece - salon music of the highest calibre. I have to thank you for making us realize what a splendid composer he really was. The performance of course is spot-on again, great how you keep up the impeccable quality throughout the cycle. It's a great achievement and a unique tribute to an undervalued composer.

Thanks for the support, you guys make it all worth.

I'd love that - it would be my 5 seconds of fame. Can't you do it on the front ? :lol:

That is good to hear. I hope you'll stick around to complete all of Nazareth's works. That would give us somethng unique in the world.

Hi Chris,

Hahaha, I'm the one honored here.

Will keep recording as long as I can, still focusing on the rarest ones.

Best wishes,
Alexandre

Hello folks,

I'll be travelling for the next 7 days (without a piano to practice), so I've decided to make an effort and record the next Nazareth, while the hands are "still warm". This Brazilian tango is a masterpiece on my opinion, due to the different techiniques and original melodic/rythimic motifs used. It's called Guerreiro (Warrior), published in 1917.

Hope you like it.

Alexandre

Yes we do like it, speaking for myself :wink:
Another wonderfully bouncy recording of another infectious piece. Quite possibly, one Nazareth piece a day will keep the doctor away !
Great job as usual. It's on ths site.

Wow - that 'warrior' is a very nice warrior! Great playing! Your piano sounds good on those low bass notes.

Thanks a lot Chris and Pianolady for your comments, I really appreciate them. If you guys ever want to try a Nazareth piece one day just write me for the score.

Cheers,
Alexandre

Hello folks,
I've recorded this week another rare Nazareth, after a long time without doing so. It's a simple polka he composed when he was 19, his 6th composition, but never-before recorded. "O Nome d'Ella" means "Her Name", and not to be mistaken with his homonimous "brilliant waltz" composed around the same time, but never published.

Cheers,
Alexandre
