Hello everyone,
I'm new to Piano Society and intend to upload a series of rare compositions of Ernesto Nazareth I've been recording.

Attached is his waltz Phantastica (fantastic) which has never been recorded commercially.

Ernesto Nazareth tunes are on public domain since 2005.

Cheers,
Alexandre Dias

Welcome to Piano Society. You play the Nazareth waltz beautifully. I have never heard or seen this one in particular. It is more interesting that most of his waltzes. I look forward to hearing the other Nazareth pieces.

Another convincing case for our Brazilian fiend Nazareth ! He wrote splendidly for the piano, sometimes a bit rambling but always in good taste and great style - as is your playing of it. Lovely rippling arpeggios in the beginning, and nice tempo and rubato in the main section. Sounds quite a handful, this piece, and it is no shame to make a couple of tiny slips - they do not distract at all. While listening I was thinking if he could be dubbed the "Brazilian Chopin". As if to confirm, he guilelessly rips the last bar of Chopin's A flat major waltz for his own ending. An affectionate and endearing gesture really !

Very well done indeed, and welcome to Piano Society. If you post or email your bio and photo we will create your page on the site, and we'll be looking forward to your next recordings.

Yes, this sounds indeed very chopinesque, in a positive sense. And quite difficult, too. It's always nice to see more and more unknown works going up the site.

(I hope I will finally record some Balakirev. Too bad he didn't write any easier pieces... :x Okay, some are playable anyway.)

Hi Guys,
I'm sending my biography and picture on this e-mail.
On the next one I'll upload all the Nazareth recordings I have done so far. They are being released on a series on the site Sovaco de Cobra http://www.sovacodecobra.com.br/rarenazareth . To each piece, my friend Zé Carlos and I are writing a text with research and images about the compositions. Each piece has its own link on the site (to be listened online), so it would be nice if I could attach the specific link to each piece on the Piano Society download page (if this isn't against the rules).

Thank you,
Alexandre


Alexandre Dias

Born in 1984, the young brasiliense Alexandre Ferreira de Souza Dias initiated his classical piano training at the age of 10. Since then he has been pursuing a multidisciplinary career: concertist, researcher and collaborator for radio programs, television and internet websites.

In his career as a pianist, he studied with Elza Kazuko Gushikem and Neusa França, besides attending master classes with Maria Teresa Madeira, Pierre Feraux, Piero Rattalino, among others, in courses and music festivals such as the International Summer Course of Brasília, taking part in several recitals, besides the 1st Grieg-Nepomuceno piano competition, of which he was one of the finalists.

One of his activities of greatest recognition in national and international ambit is the research on the work of Ernesto Nazareth, initiated in 1999, studying on his own the biography and discography of the composer, thus consolidating a private collection which gathers around 1.700 commercial recordings of the “King of (Brazilian) Tango”, 200 non-commercial recordings, and all the complete sheet music of Nazareth (more than 60 are unreleased on disc), videos, articles, books and academic publications.

His knowledge on the theme has called the attention of several vehicles for the production of musical and journalistic content about Ernesto Nazareth. Being so, Alexandre has participated over the past years in productions and articles for Rádio Câmara, Rádio MEC FM, TV Senado and Correio Braziliense, among others, speaking not only about the composer, but about choro and Brazilian music in general.

On the internet, Alexandre Dias maintains since 2001 the newsgroup O Malho, dedicated to the debate around choro and “Belle Époque” Brazilian music matters, which covers the transition between the 19th and 20th centuries, and maintains the website Ernesto Nazareth - Rei do Choro.

Cheers,
Alexandre Dias

Splendidly played ! I did not listen to all of them yet, but the quality is very high and consistent. What cheerful and infectious music ! All these are on the site, attachments replaces by links.

Perhaps you could write something for the "Waltzes and Tangos" page ? That title of course is a bit arbitrary but I had to decide on something, and I did not want to create a page for each genre.

Correcta (Polka)
Cruz, Perigo !!! (Polka)
Cuéra (Polka-Tango)

O que Há? (Brazilian Tango)
Orminda (Waltz)
Podia ser peior (Tango)
Proeminente (Brazilian Tango)
Suculento (Samba Brasileira)

Dear John, Techneut and Chaotica,
Thank you for your positive comments! These are tunes seldomly played, but equally inspired. I'll be putting more on the next weeks.

Techneut , I'll try to write something for the waltzes and tangos (in fact, I think I already have some material I can quote).

Cheers,
Alexandre

That was fresh to my ears. Rag inspired and a lot of other influences as well and a great playing from your side Alexandre. Thanks for sharing the music with us and welcome to piano society.

Thank you, Alexandre, for sharing your knowledge and talents with us. I haven't listened to most of the pieces yet, but I surely will. I also briefly visited your website and plan to spend some time there. Unfortunately, most the world has not yet "discovered" Ernesto Nazareth. I have looked for his music before but could only find a few of his most popular works. This is new material for me to relish. Thanks, again.
