This is up, Alexandre. I like this one a lot. It's so perky - can't keep still listening to it.

btw - what is her name?

Dear PianoLady,
Thanks a lot. This is a simple, but amusing polka.
"Her Name" was eventually Dora, his lifetime wife. Maybe they already knew each other in 1882. They married in 1886, and Nazareth later composed a piece titled "Dora" and another one title "Nazareth", both referring directly to his wife's name or nickname.

Cheers,
Alexandre

Hello Everyone,
After a while I've been able to record the 45th rare Nazareth. It's a rather "calm" tango called "O Alvorecer" ("The Dawn"). This is a never before recorded piece. Hope you like it.

Best wishes,
Alexandre

Hi Alexandre - ok, this is up. And you are right - it is calm for a tango. Sounded well played, as usual.

Thank you Alexadre. As a tango fan, I'm surprised I had no recordings of Nazareth's works in my collection. Thanks so much for these recordings of your great perfomances. I have downloaded them all.

Hello everyone,
Attached I'm sending the 46th rare Nazareth. It is a small "tango carnavalesco" (carnavalesque tango, or tango for the carnival) which Nazareth composed in 1923 and has never been recorded. The name is "Tudo Sobe!..." ("Everything is Raising") ironizing about the fact that all house prices were going up.

Cheers,
Alexandre

46 recordings, how many more to go before you have recorded all of his works?

Hi Juufa,
He has 212 compositions, so we have a few more years to go!

I always look forward to your recordings, Alexandre, because I know that I'll be dancing a little in my chair, and this time was no exception. Nice job as usual. And it seems like Nazareth was always happy - even in times of economic problems. That's nice - I wish I could have met him.

Hello everyone,
Today I've recorded the 47th rare Nazareth. It's a polka called "Gentes! O Imposto Pegou?" (whose most probable meaning to me is "Hey everybody, is the tax here to stay?"). Dated from 1880, it's his 4th composition (he was 17 by then).

It has been recorded for the first time this year, and its piano solo version has never been recorded.
Hope you like it.

Cheers,
Alexandre

My dear friend,

The tax surely caught! The income tax, created for the first time in June 18th, 1880 in Brazil was then revoked in May 21st, 1881. But as we know it (un)fortunately came back again, and the second time for good!!!

Well I'm sure your performance will leave as lasting an impression as my last income tax report, but a pleasant one instead.

Congratulations on an excellent performance, as always!!!

Marcelo Goes

Hi Marcelo,
Thanks for the comments!
You've actually shed some light on the meaning of the title. Until now I thought it was a reference to the "vintém tax" which charged 20 réis on the "bonde" tickets, and which caused a strong rebellion.
But now you're giving me the info that the income tax started in 1880. Maybe it is related to the music.

Cheers,
Alexandre
