for piano
This fascinating collection draws on a virtually unknown set of Brazilian dances for piano published at the end of the nineteenth century in Rio de Janeiro. These pieces blend the melodic charm and grace of the European polka and other dance forms with the sparkle and syncopation of Afro-Caribbean styles. The result is a repertoire filled with verve and wit that will appeal to players and audiences alike.

  • Melodic, little-known repertoire from South America, originally published between 1870-1890
  • 21 attractive pieces, variety of dance styles
  • Infusion of Afro-Caribbean and European style
  • Ideal repertoire for piano study and concert programmes
  • Full introduction to the repertoire, notes on the composers and dances, and on editorial policy
