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.

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.

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.

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

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:

That was really enjoyable again Alexandre, thanks ! I have put it up the site.
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!

Well, we'll probably be here in 3.5 years... But just in case, you better get going ! We want nothing less than Complete Sets here :lol:

Hello everyone,
Today's rare Nazareth is his tango called Furinga, whose meaning I don't know.

Cheers,
Alexandre Dias

Very enjoyable. I love tangos and mean to listen to your other ones when I can find time. And if I ever take tango lessons like I want to, I'll be able to listen to your music when I practice my dancing. Too bad I can't get any of the three men(sort of) in my house to dance with me, though. I could use a partner.

Hi Pianolady,
Thanks for listening. I think you're referring to Argentine tangos when you say you want to take tango lessons. This is one is a Brazilian Tango, whose genre appeared about 20 years before the first Argentine tango. The problem is that Brazilian tangos aren't called that way anymore, exactly because of this confusion. Today it is called "Choro". Anyway, it is still danceable :)

Cheers,
Alexandre

Finally, I took the time to listen to your Nazareth recordings and I am happy I did as you do a very good job Dias! I put up the two latest contributions and even though I do not know Nazareths' music very, I feel you do very authentic interpretations. I look forward from more Nazareth from you!

Dear Robert,
Thanks a lot for your nice comments, they're certainly a stimulus for me to keep recording these
rare pieces of Nazareth. This week I recorded his second composition, made when he was 15 (1878).
It's called "O Nome d'Ella" ("Her Name") and it has never been recorded nor published. This one
demanded some energy from me to be ready in a week. Hope you like it.

Cheers,
Alexandre

Nazareth - O Nome d'Ella, grande valse brillante
