Description

Composer: Ernesto Nazareth
Arranger: Sergio Assad
Performer: Marc Teicholz

Ernesto Nazareth (1863-1934), one of Brazil’s first and most influential composers, was a patriarch of Brazilian music. His output, a collection of 229 works was a milestone in the history of Brazilian instrumental music and over time has continued to gain ever more admirers. Through his instrument, the piano, Nazareth was able to communicate the strong syncopated rhythms that he heard in the choro bands playing in the streets of Rio de Janeiro. These choro groups, consisting typically of flute, cavaquinho and acoustic guitars, were a major source of Nazareth’s inspiration, but it is also apparent from his music that he loved Chopin as well.

It was with deep love and admiration for Nazareth’s music that I attempted to adapt some of his wonderful pieces for the guitar. Since it was the sound of the guitar that often inspired Nazareth’s beautiful work, it seems only natural to return some of his pieces to their original source. I have tried in these arrangements to remain as close as possible to the original piano versions, respecting their rhythms and harmony. The result, hopefully, is a set of pieces that could have actually been written for the guitar.
