Kuarup KCP 90

After the publication of Norberto Macedo‘s  Norberto Macedo – Meu Violao… Minha Seresta… (1969) Nilton Antonio Rodrigues Maia contacted me and offered to send us the complete discography of Norberto Macedo, an offer which I simply would not and could not refuse..

Here is the first album out of Nilton‘s collection, accompanied by the text Nilton wrote:

This was the third Norberto Macedo’s record, launched as non-commercial by a graphic arts company and given as a gift for its clients in 1993. It contains his own compositions played by him, two other guitarists (his pupils) and a harpsichord player.
The record was a tribute for the 90th birthday of the great Brazilian painter Candido Portinari (1903-1962) and some compositions have the same name as Portinari’s paints. For example: O Sonho (The Dream), Um Baile na Roça (A Rural Ball), Namorados (Valentine):

The guitarist Norberto Macedo was my guitar teacher during many years and my friend since 1965. He was a great musician, besides very good composer and teacher. Unfortunately he died four years ago (in august 27, 2011).
He had three LPs, three CD’s and one K7 launched, all of them of high quality, besides a guitar method published. One of the LPs was dedicated to Villa-Lobos’s guitar music and was considered one of the best interpretations of this music by whom that had the pleasure to listen it, including some music critics. So, your post can be considered a tribute to Norberto.
If you want to know a little more about Norberto access this blog, please:

He also can be watched in Youtube by this link, playing a “choro” composed for his son Leonardo, when he was a child. In this vídeo Norberto makes a tribute to Leonardo’s memory because he died some years before the video, at the age of 32.
