Laranjeiras, Quincas - Dores d'Alma (Valsa) - Video

Post by Pajarillo » Sat Mar 09, 2019 8:49 pm

This is the 3-rd piece for my playlist of Quincas Laranjeiras "DORES d'ALMA" (Valsa). An important figure of the second generation of Brazilians who took the guitar as a solo instrument, Joaquim Francisco dos Santos, known under the name Quincas Laranjeiras was the professor of eminent musicians who would carry the torch even further: the blind Levino da Conceiçao, Jose Rabelo, and Joao Pernambuco. A eulogy published in "O Violao" magazine (1929) referred to him as the "grandfather of the modern guitar."

Thank you very much friend! Only 9 pieces of Laranjeiras survived. I have recorded 5 and the 6-th one is on the way and will be recorded and posted in a day or two. But three more titles may be found only in the Library of RIO I think... :wink:

I will take a listen in the others as well, to be honest, i never hearded of this composer before, anyway, congratulations for the effort and the beautiful interpretation, you sure play with a lot of feeling, have a nice week my friend.

Thank you friend! Yes, it is always interesting to compare different interpretations. But from the 6 pieces by Laranjeiras which I have recorded ny now only two may be found in other renditions ;)
