Recent researches sais it is a legend. He was actually literate. He just didn't write socres.

Soller wrote: It does not mean "that there is no original". Original in this sense is more a "poetic license", I agree, but the scores written by Turibio Santos, Joao Borges, et al. are very consistent along the time and are considered to be representative of what Joao has composed and played.

So why Dilermando Reis version has a different rhythm?
Dilermando lived with Pernambuco in the same house, and that is when he learnt the piece from Pernambuco.
Turibio Santos version is also with a different rhythm figure than Barbosa-Lima's.
Barbosa-Lima sais he use that rhythm because it is a maxixe.

I found a post on a Brazilian forum where Fabio Zanon says he finally could listen to Pernambuco's own recording. He said rhythm is sometimes eihgth-sixteenth, sometimes those 3 sixteenth (like Dilermando's way). He said maybe it is always those 3 sixteenth, but he couldn't listened to it because sound quality of the recording is very poor...

I agree most arrangements does not change the melody/harmony and notes are almost the same. But the rhythm changes completely the swing of the music.

Sorry, but I wrongly mentioned Turibio. From all the scores I have on "Sons" he is the only one who did not write it as a "maxixe".
I was willing to refer to the scores of the "maxixe" version, which is the most played by Brazilian guitarists (although I have some records from Leandro Carvalho and a few others who play it "Turibio" style).
Regarding the João's illiteracy, I am based on a book edited by MEC/FUNARTE in 1982 on João's life (it is a monograph), which has several mentions to João as being illiterate. I have not seen any recent research on it - if you have them handy, please inform the sources.

You are right, most Brazilian guitarists do not play like Turibio's rhythm. Leandro studied with Turibio, so now you know what is a probable reason he plays that way. But Leandro also made a great study on Pernambuco's life. His master degree thesis is a good source. On the booklet of one of his CDs you will find he says Pernambuco was actually a literate. On the booklet of his second CD you will find a picture of Pernambuco together with Agustin Barrios.

Here you will find a picture of Joao Pernambuco with some writings to his sister in 1913, signed by Pernambuco, a document which would prove he was actually literate:

(look at page 2 of the pdf)

I am also curious why Turibio wrote the rhtythm that way, which is really not very usual for this piece. I have already asked some friends who know Turibio, to ask him the reason, but I still haven't had an answer.

Anyway, Dilermando's rhythm for that piece is also not very usual, and it seems to be the most appropriate. Dilermando's interpreataion is one of my faovourites.

Another interesting tale. Most Pernambuco's recordings have two guitars. Pernambuco as solo player and an acompaniment, by a guitarist called Zezinho. The interesting thing is that Zezinho later went to USA and he became the voice of Walt Disney's parrot Joe Carioca ("Ze Carioca" as we say here).

cheers,
Luis

Thanks for the Interesting site. If the picture is true, then João could not be illiterate as reported in many books.

I have more then 20 records of "Sons", and only Turibio Santos, Leandro Carvalho and Caio Cezar (another Turibio's student? may be...) do not play it as a maxixe. Although some others (Garoto, Sebastião Tapajós, Baden Powell and Yamandu) play very different arrangements harder to recognize...

Hi Dave.

M. Delcamp often uses those symbols in his arrangements. They mean for you to dampen the preceding note. I haven't seen them used much anywhere else.

Sorry, I didn't get back to you earlier... didn't realize you had replied to my question.

Very interesting - thanks for the answer.

Is there a spot he has a key for his symbols used? I am looking at Delcamp's version of Paganini Caprice 24 and noticed he has hollow diamond shapes in Variation III and also dots underneath the notes in Variation I (which I assume means to play it very disconnected or staccto sounding)

Thanks for your help!

I explored this site a bit - its really interesting. Chiquinha Gonzaga was an absolutely amazing lady. I'll have to listen to some of her music. If was was a modern day US citizen she'd end up in jail.

Unfortunately many of the links in this thread are now dead. I am looking forward to trying the piece available at this site.

It is interesting to see this old thread resuscitated. Among the stack of guitar music I bought in the 1960s is a photocopy of a handwritten score marked as Villa-Lobos Choro No 2. (Not an illegal photocopy. Guitar music was often sold in this format at the time when photocopiers were just coming in.) Upon examination it turns out to be a version of Sounds of Bells. It is slightly different to the version I played recently in my Trinity grade 7 exam.

Yes, I had that one too. A rather faded photocopy of a photocopy with Choro No 2 crossed out and Sons de Carrilhoes written in biro. It was handed to me by a guitar teacher and probably was illegal, but it was before the days I knew about copyright. :shock:

I found The Sound Of Bells listed under Level 5 - viewtopic.php?f=49&t=7402

It is listed as "João Teixeira Guimarães : Sons de Carillhões". Note that Pernambuco is not mentioned for that particular reference. Typically he appears as "João Teixeira Guimarães (Pernambuco)". So, searching for Guimarães in the page content instead Pernambuco helps for this composer.

By the way, another huge coincidence, in the same day this thread was rescuscitated, a new piece by Pernambuco was just discovered!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfWqT92cWpk
It was discovered in the files of Ms Neusa Franca. Some interesting music in the files. For example, a recital by Baden-Powell which includes him playing Barrios among other pieces. Just search that youtube channel...

About Villa and Pernambuco, I think we can find some resemblance of Pernambuco's "Sonho de Magia" melody in Villa's prelude 5.

Yes, Luis, I had noticed the resemblance.

As far as I am aware, Joao Guimaraes used the name Pernambuco as a performer.
