Where were all of these little gems when I was looking for music of Nazareth? Are they published? If so, why are they so difficult to find? When I was looking for Nazareth pieces, I didn't see any of these in my Google search.

Dear John,

Indeed, these pieces are very rare. In fact, I wouldn't know about them if I weren't researching Nazareth's works and discography for the past 8 years. Everybody knows Odeon, Apanhei-te Cavaquinho, Brejeiro and Escorregando, which are his top most recorded pieces (along with Dengozo). Some people know Batuque, Ameno Resedá, Bambino, and Matuto. But basically no one knows A Fonte do Lambary, O Nome Dela, Pirilampo, and Furinga. This is because the latter group has never been recorded commercially. As a matter of fact, from the 211 existing Nazareth compositions, 61 have never been recorded on disc.

You can find a list of his complete works here:
http://www.chiquinhagonzaga.com/nazareth/ (just click on "composições" at the menu on the left)

You may feel free to ask me for his scores. I can scan them and send to you. Just take a look on the list and mark the ones you'd like to know.

All Nazareth pieces but 37 have been published on printed scores in some point in history. But just a few of them remain in the catalog of some publishers today. To get all of them you must resort to collectors or Brazil's National Library (www.bn.br), which has almost all his scores + rare manuscripts.

As you'll see, Nazareth has still some hidden masterpieces waiting to be discovered.


Cheers,
Alexandre

Wonderful recordings once again :D I used to think Nazareth was a second-rate composer, but he grows in statue with each recording that is submitted here. He had some of Scaratti's talent for producing constant quality and endless variety in one very limited genre. They are up the site.

Hi techneut, and everyone,

Thanks for updating the links.

I've recorded a new rare Nazareth today: the Brazilian tango "Paulicéa, como És Formosa!..." (something like, "paulistanos (São Paulo habitants and the city itself), how beautiful you are!", published in 1926 after Nazareth made a toruneé to São Paulo.

This piece has only been recorded commercially in 1927, and it's a gem in my opinion.

Cheers,
Alexandre

Hello everyone,

Today I've recorded a rare Nazareth tango called "Catrapuz" (which means "the sound of the gallop of the horse"), which is one of the most difficult pieces I have studied of Nazareth. This music, in fact, my be called a gallop, due to its virtuosistic nature.

Cheers,
Alexandre Dias

Hello folks,
Today I recorded a beautiful tango of Ernesto Nazareth, which has never been recorded commercially in its manuscript version (the printed version is about 66% different, and has been recorded by the american pianist Paul Posnak).

Hope you like it.

Once more I seem to have missed some of your postings... :oops: I have downloaded all the new ones and will listen to them tomorrow. No doubt they will be just as good or even better than all your previous ones.

Wonderfully bouncing and supple performances as always, with excellent use of dynamics. Your darting octaves in the Catrapuz are especially impressive. I'll put these up the site tonight.

I am not sure there is a point in having two versions of the Encantador. IMO the manuscript version is far more interesting than the published version - and better performed, too. But you have the last word on it.

Not sure if this has been asked already, but is this a digital instrument ?

Hello Chris,

>Wonderfully bouncing and supple performances as always, with excellent use of dynamics. Your >darting octaves in the Catrapuz are especially impressive. I'll put these up the site tonight.

I'm very glad you like them. Catrapuz was a major challange (I wanted to play it fast, without loosing its musicality)


>I am not sure there is a point in having two versions of the Encantador. IMO the manuscript >version is far more interesting than the published version - and better performed, too. But you >have the last word on it.

I agree with you on the point that the manuscript version is way much better. But I like to have the printed version recorded, since many people would tend to think at first that the printed version is the one approved by the composer, which doesn't seem to be the case (there is also evidence that this version was corrupted by the editors). So everyone will be able to listen and compare by themselves.


>Not sure if this has been asked already, but is this a digital instrument ?

Yes, it is: a Kurzweil Mark 10.

Cheers,
Alexandre Dias
