Hello Marcelo,

Thanks for the comment.
I'm not aware of any recording of Olinda Alessandrini playing Desengonçado. Did you hear it live?

The only recordings I know of Desengonçado are Polly Ferman's (1989), Orquestra Pan American (1928) and Daniel Dalarossa (2008).

Best,
Alexandre

I'm sorry!!! I must have missed the link to Desengoncado. I meant Tupinamba!... I will listen to Desengoncado shortly!

By the way, if I ever win the lottery, one of the top priorities of my gift list will be an acoustic piano for you. :-)

:-)

Best Regards

Marcelo

My most sincere thanks, Marcelo.
I already have a Kawai Kx21 upright, but I'll accept a grand version of it ;)

Best,
Alexandre

Excellent recording of "Desengoncado", another amazing piece. I'm not aware of any others out there for comparison, but I think you are definitely an authority. Even so, I must ask whether you think if it is not a bit too fast...?

I have never heard of this composer. Very interesting. I love public domain and find it useful in my teaching. I will keep this in mind.

Dear friends,

It is with immense joy and pride that I inform that Ernesto Nazareth is the first composer in the world to have his discography entirely available online. At the website www.ernestonazareth150anos.com.br - discography section ("discografia/gravações") an extensive table is available, which catalogs around 2.500 recordings of Nazareth's compositions made from 1902 to the present, in the whole world.

And to make the catalog richer, 2.043 recordings are available to be listened instantly on stream (downloads are not available). You just have to click on a line, and the player will appear. Then click on the play button.

There we have the first Brazilian 78-RPM recordings ever made, in the first decade of the 20th century by legendary Casa Edison, with the military bands and some of the first choro ensembles, going through Nazareth's own recordings, the explosion of his music in 1914 in the U.S. and Paris, the transition period in the 1940s with American influences, the first anthological LPs from the 1950s with Jacob do Bandolim, Radamés Gnattali e Carolina Cardoso de Menezes, the popular singers, his great re-descovery by the pianists Eudóxia de Barros in 1963 and Arthur Moreira Lima in 1975, which led his works definitely into the concert halls, entering the CD era with espectacular arrengements for the most diverse instrumentations, including symphonic orchestra, in a time which Japaneses, Americans, Frenchs, Norwegians, Uruguayans, Canadians, Icelanders, Brazilians, and many others, record him, showing the long reach of his works.

This is a previously unpublished research which I've been doing for the past 13 years, which shows that Ernesto Nazareth is one of Brazil's most recorded and cherished composers. To see it made available represents a more-than-dream, which was only possible thanks to the extraordinary vision of Instute Moreira Salles, represented by Bia Paes Leme and Paulo Aragão, also coordinators of the website.

Help us spread the word about it.

I wish you all a deep dive into the universe of Nazareth's discography, and that you may always marvel yourselves with the possibilities of his music.

Cheers,
--
Alexandre Dias
