Moreira, Celso - Choro para juliana

Post by rafaelcheib » Wed May 07, 2008 5:41 pm

Hi

Celso Moreira is a great composer from Belo Horizonte, Brazil. I study harmonization and improvisation with him. He is a great musician and a great person. I am studing with him for a long time and I can consider him a great friend.

This is one of his songs called "Choro para Juliana". Juliana is his wife, by the way.

I am eager to hear coments about the composition and the interpretation.

I recorded this song with an AKG C3000 microphone...

I hope you like

Best regards

Rafael

Very nice piece, very well played. Nice recording, too.

Is there a score?

Thank you!

Yes, there is... But I don't have it in computer files. I will ask Celso and see if he has it and if he would like I post it here in the forum...

Best regards

The best (only?) way to explain the word "saudade"* is to provide an example, so you can experience it for yourself...

Thank you both for this beautiful piece of music. I have not listened to much Brazilian music in the last few years because each piece I heard had already been imprinted with too many memories or associations that were too specific... (flash backs were too vivid)

It is wonderful to have a chance to experience saudade again, but with a fresh new perspective :casque: Thank you Sr. Moreira for this composition, and you Rafael for the recording.


*From Wikipedia:
In his book In Portugal of 1912, A.F.G Bell writes:
"The famous saudade of the Portuguese is a vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist, for something other than the present, a turning towards the past or towards the future; not an active discontent or poignant sadness but an indolent dreaming wistfulness."

And by the way... :merci: very much

Thanks a lot for posting this beautiful piece, congratulations to your performance and of course to the composer! This fits very well into my current brazilian music trip. I'd also love to see a score, if this would be a possibility!

Best wishes

Hi Rafael,

Absolutely beautiful. Wonderfully played and my compliments to your teacher for writing such a lovely piece.

At the risk of having another beautiful distraction, I'm with everyone else for the score.

Thanks again.

Matt.

That was so beautiful Rafael! And the sound is so rich - I love the recording quality.

I would love to get a transcription of that piece as well.

Thank you for posting it!

This might be predictable, but...one more for the list!!

It is a beautiful piece and very well balanced (without straying from the theme). An excellent recording too with a wonderful resonance and warm rich tone.

Absolutely delightful :P

The composition as well as the rendition.

Hi everybody who wants the score...

Celso told me he is going to send the score to my e-mail... So I am going to post it as soon as I get the file. I invited him to join the forum, but I think he is not going to...

But anyway, thanks for all coments! Celso is really proud and so am I!

Best regards
