Nazareth, Ernesto

$16.00

Ernesto Júlio de Nazareth was a Brazilian composer and pianist, especially noted for his creative Maxixe and Choro compositions. Influenced by African rhythms and many musical styles like the Lundu and the Choro, he never fully accepted this influence, refusing to give popular names to his compositions. A musician of classical training, what he did was to classify his music as “Brazilian tangos”, since the Argentine tango and polka dances were considered fashionable at the time. His piano repertoire is part of the teaching programs of both classical and popular style even today, since Nazareth was a figure who served at the boundary between these two worlds.
