Hi Chris,

Thanks for listening.
The sonority could be richer, but it's a Yamaha. I intend to record in a Steinway afterwards in a better studio.
The thumping sounds should be ignored heheh

Best,
Alexandre

Dear folks,

Today I've recorded Nazareth's Está Chumbado (a Brazilian slang for "he Is drunk" or "you are drunk", which is not used anymore).

Incidentally, this piece is more famous in the U.S. than in Brazil, because it was recorded by the pianists: Frank French, David Thomas Roberts, Antoine Zemor, Fred Sturm and Paul Posnak!

Best,
Alexandre

P.S. Hello Chris or Monica, could you please delete the Phantastica waltz I uploaded in this thread a couple of messages ago? It's been one week I don't want to make it available because it's a commercial recording.

Thanks,
Alexandre

Hi Alexandre,

"Está Chumbado" is up and very appropriate as I sip some fine merlot and listen to this nice 'drinking tune' - haha. But can you please check the link? My son is downloading something right now and so the Internet connection on my computer is extremely slow. I have also removed your "Fantastica Waltz". Cheers! :lol:

Oh and btw - this sounded very nice, as usual! :)

Great piece ! I like your strict tempo and vigorous touch. The sound is less apparently digital than in some of your other recordings, it almost sounds like the real thing.

Hello Folks,

I've recorded the 68th rare Nazareth: a Brazilian tango called Jangadeiro ("Raft Man"). It has only been recorded in 1928 by a Brazilian orchestra and in 2002 by the American pianist Fred Sturm. We now have 31% of Nazareth's works on PS.

Hope you like it.

Best,
Alexandre

Hi Monica,

Thanks.
Last year I recorded only 6 Nazareths. I want to compensate for that :)

Best,
Alexandre

Thanks Felipe!

You should try a complete set as well. Nepomuceno's piano works fit in 2 CDs, and Oswald's in 3.

Best,
Alexandre

Hello Alexandre,

Nice pacing of the tango. Was fun to listen to, it reminded me a bit of Gottschalk.

The Fox Trot was a delight to hear. These pieces might be a lot of fun to try in my special needs classroom with percussion accompaniments. Ernesto Nazareth has wit and whimsy. Your fox trot has nice timing and beautiful melodic phrasing. I love the shift in the middle. It sounds a bit like ragtime and you play it so well!

I haven't had a chance to hear the other pieces yet, but i'm looking forward to it.

Thanks,
Kaila Rochelle

Dear Folks,

Today I've recorded the 69th rare Nazareth: his Brazilian tango "Tupynambá", an implicit hommage to his fellow composer Marcello Tupynambá. Incidentally, both were regarded by Milhaud as Brazil's greatest composers, and were quoted in his ballet Le Boeuf sur le Toit.

This is a unique tango of his, because of its delicateness.

Hope you like it.

Dear Kaila,

I'm glad you like Nazareth's foxtrot! I actually recorded three: "If I'm not Mistaken", "Nove de Maio" (May 9th) and "Delightfulness". He has one other as well "Até que Enfim" (At last). You can find all his scores here for free, reviewed by me: www.ernestonazareth.com.br

I think it would be great if you took his music to your special needs classroom with percussion accompaniments.

Thank you for the message.

All the best,
Alexandre
