Nazareth (1863 -1934) was a Brazilian composer and pianist whose compositional style absorbs many different influences Brazilian, European, African and ragtime. He composed tangos, waltzes, polkas, sambas, galops, Scottisches and fox-trots and although classically trained was very familiar with the popular musical idioms of his day both at home and abroad. Brejeiro is described as a tango and the English translation of the Portugese word Brejeiro is impish meaning fun or mischevous. A tempo of 96 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute is suggested. In terms of the arrangement, there has been some simplication of the texture although the core musical material remains intact. I would recommend listening to different versions of this simply lovely piece played by a range instrument of combinations. The original version is also available, on the website, for the brave and accomplished!
