Dear Piano Lady and Chris,
Thanks a lot for your comments.

Pianolady, I am righthanded too, that's one of the motives of why this was a huge challange for me! But it was nice to "play along" with the concept one hand. Godowsky noticed that, to him, once he gave the opportunity to his left hand, it was easier to develp it than the right hand.

Chris,
"Even if it does not quite sound as carefree and effortless as your two-hand submissions. "
yep! you can see I need more time working on it hehehe

"seems to me like the Polka genre is not so suitable for one hand, and I can imagine the jumps make it very difficult." Maybe you're right, actually this is the first "polka" for the left hand I've seen. It seems that nocturnes and the like attend more this kind of techinique. Nazareth himself wrote another piece for the left hand with this kind of feeling: an Elegy. Still, it amazes me how he always tried to explore the techinique of the piano in very interesting ways, sometimes making very difficult pieces, like this Polka.

Cheers,
Alexandre

Hi Folks!

Today I've recorded the rare polka "Marietta", which Ernesto Nazareth dedicated to his daughter Maria. Hope you like it!

Cheers,
Alexandre

Sounds great, as usual Alexandre. It is up on the site.

I wonder - with all the Nazareth pieces you have recorded, do you have a favorite?

Hi Pianolady,
Thanks for uploading it.

Some of my favorites are
Chave de Ouro
Proeminente
Jacaré
Atlântico
Catrapuz
Cuéra
Suculento
Encantador (Manuscript Version)
Furinga

As you can see, I have a crush on the tangos :O)

and many other ones which are actually famous (still a long time before I record them , 'cause the rare ones list is still big :).

Cheers,
Alexandre

How many more pieces do you have left before you have recorded all his rare works?

Hi Juufa,

The menu is extensive. Before I record any of his famous works, there are more than 50 pieces I can chose from, including never-before recorded pieces, works that have never been recorded on their original piano solo version, or simply works that almost never are played.

Cheers,
Alexandre

Hello everyone,
Here goes Nazareth's "Hespañolita", a waltz that, like the title says, has Spanish flavour. It's one of the never-before-recorded pieces.

Cheers,
Alexandre

This is up, Alexandre. Good job, as usual. I like when the main theme returns for the final time at the end.

Hello Juffa,
That's nice, I have never been to Spain.

Pianolady,
Thanks! I invented that accelerando at the end, because an abrupt mood change to the last repetition of part A wouldn't make sense to me.

Best wishes,
Alexandre

Greetings, I'm not sure it's the right place to ask but I'll try anyway.

Several years ago I practiced a Brazilian tango of Nazareth's called "Garôto". It's a lovely piece which always seems to gather instantaneous popularity, regardless of the audience.

Anyway. I'd like to get this one back in shape in order to record it, and I have a problem. I never gave it much thought back then (because there was only so much I could do anyway), but there is no tempo marking on the score, and I absolutely have no idea how fast a Brazilian tango should be played, or what the stylistic conventions are. From an uneducated standpoint, the piece may actually "work" at several different paces, and I can't make up my mind.

Do you know the piece? What would you do, or how do you usually go about it with the Nazareth pieces you play?

Hello François,
How are you?

>Several years ago I practiced a Brazilian tango of Nazareth's called "Garôto". It's a lovely piece >which always seems to gather instantaneous popularity, regardless of the audience.
Nazareth usually has a captivating charm of its own, which is why it is beginning to be more and more appreciated/recorded worldwide. And that is great.


>Anyway. I'd like to get this one back in shape in order to record it, and I have a problem. I never >gave it much thought back then (because there was only so much I could do anyway), but there is >no tempo marking on the score, and I absolutely have no idea how fast a Brazilian tango should >be played, or what the stylistic conventions are.

Yes, that's a big question, and certainly has no definitive answer. One could write an essay on this issue. Like Bach, Nazareth almost never wrote tempo markings on his scores. You're right when you say that " the piece may actually "work" at several different paces". This can be seen on the recordings: each person plays it in a different tempo, some times very different from each other.

Usually Nazareth's music should be played slowly (there's an uncorfirmed reference that his Brazilian tangos should be played at 100bpm, which can be very slow depending on the piece) and a famous quotation by himself telling that his music shouldn't be played fast. Nevertheless among the few recordings he left there are some quite fast-paced (a fact that can also be discussed).

I think that you'll have more security with the tempo after listening to some recordings of it. Send me an e-mail (afsdias@terra.com) and I'll send you some reference recordings of Garoto. Then you can choose them tempo that suits you best according to your taste (which is what I do).

Best wishes,
Alexandre

Hello Folks,
I'm making available the 40th Ernesto Nazareth recording I've done in the past 14 months. It's the Marcha Heróica aos 18 do Forte (Heroic March to the 18 of the Fort), which has never been recorded. Like a few other of his pieces, this one has lyrics, and was composed in 1922 in reference to an episode in Rio de Janeiro's history.

Best wishes,
Alexandre

Very nice job, as usual Alexandre. I like the 'waltzy' part of this piece a lot. And the very beginning - those repeated notes - that sounds just like something I can't think of right this second - some Mozart piece or maybe Clementi. Oh well...it'll come to me. Anyway, this is up. :)

Hello folks,
Today I've recorded a simple polka that Ernesto Nazareth composed when he was 21 (1884). It's called "Não me Fujas Assim" (Don't run away from me like that).

Best wishes to everyone,
Alexandre

Only a Brazilian could write a Polka like that :D

What an immensely likable piece - salon music of the highest calibre. I have to thank you for making us realize what a splendid composer he really was. The performance of course is spot-on again, great how you keep up the impeccable quality throughout the cycle. It's a great achievement and a unique tribute to an undervalued composer.

Hahaha, I'm the one honored here.

Will keep recording as long as I can, still focusing on the rarest ones.

Hello folks,

I'll be travelling for the next 7 days (without a piano to practice), so I've decided to make an effort and record the next Nazareth, while the hands are "still warm". This Brazilian tango is a masterpiece on my opinion, due to the different techiniques and original melodic/rythimic motifs used. It's called Guerreiro (Warrior), published in 1917.

Hope you like it.

Alexandre

Another wonderfully bouncy recording of another infectious piece. Quite possibly, one Nazareth piece a day will keep the doctor away !
Great job as usual. It's on ths site.

Hello folks,
I've recorded this week another rare Nazareth, after a long time without doing so. It's a simple polka he composed when he was 19, his 6th composition, but never-before recorded. "O Nome d'Ella" means "Her Name", and not to be mistaken with his homonimous "brilliant waltz" composed around the same time, but never published.

Cheers,
Alexandre

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.

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

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!!!

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

Come to think of it, your explanation is also a possibility. Of the two taxes, only the income tax is still charged today, as we no longer have olden day cable cars in Brazil. But of course, Nazareth had no way of knowing this fact in his lifetime, so I guess unless someone has some first-hand information of which tax he was referring to, we will never know.

Cheers

Marcelo

A rather inconsequential, but irresistable, piece. Your performance is wonderful as always. I don't think anybody could do a better service to Nazareth. It is good that you take ample time for each piece and make it into something special and unique. So, hor many more to go ?

Hello Chris,
Thanks for the comments. If I record 1 piece per week, there are still 3.17 years to go! But since I'm concentrating on the rarest ones for now, I could say that there are about 50 more that can be classified as "rare". Some of these have never been recorded and simply aren't played (so I think it's a cool privilege to be able to listen to a Nazareth for the first time played by oneself). Thanks for hosting the recordings in your fantastic site.

Cheers,
Alexandre
