    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.

    I'd love that - it would be my 5 seconds of fame. Can't you do it on the front ? :lol:

    That is good to hear. I hope you'll stick around to complete all of Nazareth's works. That would give us somethng unique in the world.

    Hi Chris,

    >I'd love that - it would be my 5 seconds of fame. Can't you do it on the front ?

    Hahaha, I'm the one honored here.

    >That is good to hear. I hope you'll stick around to complete all of Nazareth's works. That would >give us somethng unique in the world.

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

    Best wishes,
    Alexandre

    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.

    Yes we do like it, speaking for myself :wink:
    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.

    Wow - that 'warrior' is a very nice warrior! Great playing! Your piano sounds good on those low bass notes.

    O Nome d'Ella, polka

    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

    This is up, Alexandre. I like this one a lot. It's so perky - can't keep still listening to it.

    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

    O Alvorecer, tango de salão

    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.

    Best wishes,
    Alexandre

    Hi Alexandre - ok, this is up. And you are right - it is calm for a tango. Sounded well played, as usual.

    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.

    Tudo Sobe!... (carnaval tango)

    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

    46 recordings, how many more to go before you have recorded all of his works?

    Hi Juufa,
    He has 212 compositions, so we have a few more years to go!
