Nazareth (1863 -1934) was a Brazilian composer and pianist whose music transcribes very well from the piano to other instruments. His 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 impish meaning fun or mischevous. A tempo of 96 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute is suggested and a marimba part is appended to the music score.
