  • April 02, 2009 Brejeiro & Odeon - 2 attention grabbers!

    Brejeiro - What a fun, bouncy, splashy piece to play! Odeon - loaded with humor and suspense and a left hand melody. As I pass by the piano during the day, I'm drawn to just sit down and play these two for the fun of it!

  • March 28, 2008 Rhythmic, fun to play

    If you like fun rhythms, you'll like this. A cross between latin dance and ragtime. Odeon, Nazareth's most famous tango, is a classic. Entertain your friends and family. Some of the pieces in the collection are fairly easy to play.

  • March 21, 2002 Nazareth Brazilian Tangos Waltzes

    I heard someone perform these pieces at a free piano concert in Indianapolis. His music sounds a lot like Scott Joplin. The waltzes are beautiful. I have been working on "The Painted Lady." It is the easiest piece in the book. My piano teacher even says the music is difficult...
