The Music of Brazil

Post by Hands » Tue Nov 17, 2009 8:21 am

There is no Brazilian thread yet, but I am not starting one because this is a re request, and I have nothing to contribute towards a new Brazilian thread.

Still looking for music by Nepomuceno ( other than those available on IMSPL). Anyone can help?

Does anyone have Leopoldo Miguéz's Op. 20, Souvenir? The files are locked at IMSLP.

Villa-Lobos.. who added the glissando

Post by Oberon Smith » Tue Feb 02, 2010 4:47 pm

While listening to some recordings, of Villa-Lobos's Polichinello, I have noticed that two pianists have added a glissando to the end, that is not on the score. It is decidedly effective, but, not what is written. My hunch is that Rubinstein added to the piece, but, the power that be here, may know better.... Thank you... Oberon

PS.... I was just treated to a wonderful recording of the Liszt Hungarian Phantasy, stopped me dead in my tracks, when I heard the Ganz Changes. I was pleasantly surprised to learn, that the pianist, was a student of a Ganz Student. Which has added to my unanswered question here, " what is the current attitude to changes made to your score, when you have had a great teacher?" I know how it was handled in the past, but, what is the current "trend" in thought. Oberon

If I remember correctly, Rubinstein himself mentions in his memoirs that it was him who added this glissando (I don't know whether he premiered the cycle, but he definitely was one of the first pianists to perform it).
Neither do I know, if Rubinstein ever published any of his own compositions, but he revised de Falla (reported by Harriet Cohen) and considerably thinned out the text of Albeniz' Iberia - which found the approval of the composer, who is reported to have done the same! And - reported by Darius Milhaud - he was able to play by heart (!) a lot of modern orchestral works on the piano!

thank you ... alfor.....I guess my little gray cells are still working. It is something Rubinstein would do. I know he was a friend and great promoter of Villa-Lobos's music. I know he did not premier the work, but performed it often. Who else could get away with playing " a doll suite"..LOLOLOLOL.... Oberon

Rubinstein premiered the work, but he dropped a movt and reversed the order of the last 2 movements so it ends with O polichinello. Most pianists repeat the piece (which is not originally in the score) and add a glissando, a trend which Rubinstein started.
