About this album

Ernesto Nazareth (1863-1934) is one of the pillars of Brazilian music, increasingly recognized by the international community of musicians, researchers, and enthusiasts. His vast repertoire of 211 songs is now available in an unprecedented critical edition, organized in six volumes, accomplished through a meticulous review of autographed manuscripts and first editions. The review, based on rigorous musicological criteria, was done by pianists Alexandre Dias and Sara Cohen, experts in Ernesto Nazareth’s work who have done a great deal to preserve his memory.

All of the editorial changes are explained in the critical notes at the end of each volume, indicating the measures that were altered and including a musicological justification for each change. Certain editions of sheet music by Ernesto Nazareth and other Brazilian composers are known to contain a significant number of historical editorial mistakes. Our project aims to provide a reliable version of Nazareth’s works for musicians and researchers around the world. The musicological principles utilized for the review are explained in detailed introductory notes.

Each volume contains 36 compositions, chronologically arranged, so that the first volume focuses on the works of Nazareth’s youth, and the last on his most mature works. A glossary at the end of each volume explains the abbreviations used both in the critical notes and in the sheet music. All of the albums are bilingual, with texts in both Portuguese and English.

For this project, we had the indispensable support of biographer/heir Luiz Antonio de Almeida, who provided us with autographed manuscripts that were not present in other collections, the Moreira Salles Institute, who maintain the Ernesto Nazareth collection and who also provided us with access to all of the manuscripts in their possession, and the National Library, which maintains the largest collection of manuscripts by Ernesto Nazareth.

This is the first critical edition of the complete works of a Brazilian composer, and with it we hope that our authors might be increasingly more valued, with many more similar initiatives to come.
