What are the octet flower shapes? Are they supposed to be the harmonics?DanielMcPherson wrote: ... Also you can click the name "Pernambuco" from the forum header to go to http://www.pernambucojoao.com/, which also has Sons de Carillhões as a pdf.
I checked out Carlos Barbosa Lima's version and there were harmonics, but then saw David Russel's version and it was sans harmonics.Soller wrote:I do not think there are harmonics in the "original" score, may be in some other arrangement.
I have seen more frequently the first bars of the second part played in pizzicato.
There are a lot of misspellings of the title though. The correct is as is in the subject of this post: "Sons de Carrilhões".

Barbosa Lima's is probably the most altered version in relation to the original (which is basically the one everybody plays), and I think is the only one I saw with harmonics. Delcamp's is closer to the original and does not have them.I checked out Carlos Barbosa Lima's version and there were harmonics, but then saw David Russel's version and it was sans harmonics. (...)

Is there a different Lima version published, and if so, where?
Well, João Pernambuco was not only unable to write scores, as many composers of his time, but was also illiterate. 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. Heitor Villa Lobos was one that is said to have helped to write Joao's songs, although I have not seen any of these "originals".Luis_Br wrote:Actually there is no orginal. all of them are arrengements from popular knowledge. Pernambuco couldn't write a score. ...)
