Chao de Estrelas - S. Caldas

arr: R. Baden-Powell

added: 2015-08-24 22:15:29

A transcription from a recording by Baden-Powell. This is a beautiful Brazilian Waltz, composed by Silvio Caldas. I did change the ending a bit, from bar 100 onwards. Normally there's a fade-out on Baden-Powell's record, but this way it gets a playable ending.

Confidencias - E. Nazareth

arr: B. Alink

added: 2015-08-23 12:12:50

My arrangement is  played as a slow waltz, but I also found some versions that sounded very different. The one by Jacob do Bandolim reminded me of Portugese fados.

Dor Secreta - E. Nazareth

added: 2015-08-23 19:40:39

I deviated most from the original for piano compared to my other Nazareth arrangements, but I'm very pleased with the result.

Manha de Carnaval - L. Bonfa

arr: R. Baden Powell

added: 2015-08-22 09:44:41

One of the most beautiful melodies I ever heard. This is a combination of two Baden-Powell arrangements of the piece. Mostly it's this one, found on youtube. The first bars are from the version that can be found on 'Tristeza on Guitar'. I've made some extra changes to make the piece easier to play.

Sonho de Magia - J. Pernambuco

arr: B. Alink

added: 2015-08-24 21:57:39

Brazilian composer whose most well known piece is 'Sons de Carrilhoes'. The piece here is not as famous, but the first bar may sound familiar. It has been quoted by Villa Lobos in his Prelude no. 5.
