Ok then, you have a good point, we'll put them up both.
Never heard of that digital brand, but it sounds very good. I guess it makes sense in the
Brazilian climate which I imagine to be hot and humid, to have a digital instrument.

Hi Chris,
Kurzweil is regarded as a good brand for its timber. It is owned by Young Chang, and you can check the specifications of Mark 10 here:
http://www.kurzweilmusicsystems.com/pro ... tml?Id=454

Brasília is divided year-round by an extremely dry season and a very wet one. This variation is said to have a negative effect on acoustic pianos, but I've been saving for some years to by an Yamaha U1, which is my next dream.

The digital piano though gives me good advantages for recording without environment noise.

Cheers,
Alexandre

Hello folks,

This week I've recorded Ernesto Nazareth's rare romance "Êxtase", published in 1926. It received lyrics and has a version for piano, voice and violin. The one I recorded, though, is the piano solo version, which has never been commercially recorded.

Cheers,
Alexandre

Sorry, the post went before I could write on it.

This is another rare Brazilian tango by Ernesto Nazareth called "Bicyclette-Club", which has only been recorded commercially once, on solo guitar.

The link to the post (in Portuguese) is:

Hi Folks,
This week's rare Nazareth is a polka he composed in his youth, in 1883. It's called "Os Teus Olhos Captivam" (Your Eyes Captivate) and it was dedicated vaguely "to a Brazilian lady". It has only been recorded once, in 1911 (by a band). For those who want to try to read in Portuguese, this is the link with some more info about the music:

Cheers,
Alexandre

Are you planning to record all of his works ?

Hi Chris,
I'm glad you're enjoying these pieces/recordings. At the moment I'm just recording his pieces that were never recorded on its original piano solo version (or, in some cases, not recorded at all). I still don't know where this will end, so meanwhile I'm just enjoying myself being able to uncover these forgotten gems to my peers and piano lovers : )


Cheers,
Alexandre
P.S. Just for curiosity, I've recorded 11% of his works by now. If this weekly pace is kept, it will take *only* 3 years and a half to finish everything haha!
