A collection of 28 Ernesto Nazareth compositions expertly transcribed for classic guitar solo. One of the major difficulties in trying to arrange Ernesto Nazareth's themes for any instrument, but the piano, is to separate the melodic line from its accompaniment: both are so closely together (that is one of the strongest characteristics of his pianistic style of composition) that it becomes almost impossible to treat one of the features disregarding the other. If one did that the result would be only a pale and incomplete portrait of what was intended by the composer. That thought has guided us in the making of this book. In spite of the huge obstacles that resulted from the transposition of a piece originally written for the piano - a very rich instrument regarding the expressive recourses - to the more modest" guitar.

    I heard Ernesto Nazareth's piano music in an art class and was wondering if it were possible to transcribe for guitar and found this book WELL within the reach of an intermediate player. Some songs are more challenging, but Confidencias and Saudade were playable within a week of practice...

    . Saudade had one error (there is an Ernesto Nazareth piano website if you want to see what the transcriber was thinking when porting to guitar). Ernesto Nazareth reminds me of Chopin on some pieces and a Tango ballroom on others. Great practice, and great addition to the repertoire.
