    A new recording Brazilian tango

    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,

    Catrapuz, tango

    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

    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

    Êxtase, romance

    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:
