Ernesto Julio de Nazareth, born in Rio de Janeiro on March 20th, 1863, came to this world with the mission of making music...
Vicente Salles, musicologist
The arrangements of famous Nazareth pieces, performed by Francisca Aquino, meet a pressing need. The music of Ernesto Nazareth has a universal appeal, with CD, video and DVD renditions and recordings in many cultural centers, mainly in North America. The lack of availability of quality arrangements leads, at times, to renditions which are not compatible with the Brazilian tradition.
Francisca Aquino is a connoisseur of our repertoire, which she plays expertly. She has extensive experience in arrangement, that being evident in her many productions. I have had the opportunity of examining several of her pieces. In this work, she proceeds, successfully, along the extremely developed polyphonic line characteristic of the Brazilian counter-melody, and she seasons the harmony with fantasy and innovation. This brilliant version, of excellent effect for public performance, deserves international dissemination.
