Brejeiro arr. accordion, acoustic guitar & bass guitar + TAB


Nazareth (1863 -1934) was a Brazilian composer and pianist whose music transcribes very well from the piano to popular contemporary 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 is impish meaning fun or mischevous. A tempo of 96 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute is suggested. Some of the chord voicings in the guitar parts have been changed and there are some octave transpositions in the melody where the range of the solo instrument proves limiting. The TAB parts for the acoustic and bass guitar means that the score is quite cluttered so I would advise switching to the non TAB score when the music has been learnt. If an accordion is not available a keyboard instruments with an accordion/free reed sound can be used.
