I have noticed that a lot of choros were written for the C clarinet. Were they actually written with the sound of a C clarinet in mind or were Brazilian clarinetists expected to transpose?

Also, are a lot of fakevook published and if so, by whom? There is a lot worth exploring in this music. After tangos and Klezmer, now comes the time for choros! Pixinguinha, the most prolific choro composer, played flute as a young man but later played tenor sax exclusively.

Soprano sax is also popular. My sense is that choro is mostly not played fakeboo, written music. This presents a fakebooi challenge to the mandolinists for example who are expected to handle the faiebook harmony as well as the melody line.

But the players all grow up with the music, and learn mostly by listening, I suspect. Now there are numerous collections available, including some with Bb transpositions and recorded accompaniments. Look under “choro mandolin” at http: I got the idea that Choros of the past were written for the C clarinet because there are pieces by Villa-Lobos and some of his contemporaries for this instrument.

Personally, I love playing the C clarinet vakebook have a really good one, so I welcome any opportunity to play it. It has a character all its own. How accurate it is I have no idea, but…a diligent internet searcher would be rewarded. He made both C and Bb versions. It is quite accurate.

He may ship paper copies, I’m not sure.

In the instance of Ernesto Nazareth he wrote predominantly for piano and people play them on what ever instrument they want to, they even change keys if they want.

A fake book would be really great, if you know the tunes already but written music doesn’t tell you “how” to play the music. I’m one of those people that believe you can’t learn how to play any kind of music, Classical, Klezmer, Choro unless you listen to a ton of it, and luckily cboro never been easier. Tom Puwalski, former principal Clarinetist with U.

Since you brought this up, I went through one of the standard collections Chediak’s Choro Songbook Vol. From memory, I’d say that E and A occur more often inside a tune than at the start.

So it’s not quite as bad as I had thought for the Bb player, but the punishing tempos make for lots of work in any case. I have wondered whether the keys in compositions over the years were influenced by the composers’ main instrument, but looking through this book I found no obvious correlation.

I do have the impression that wind player Pixinguinha’s tunes provide breathing spots, and many of the mandolinist Jacob do Bandolim do not. It is absolutely true that listening to native players is essential to learning choro. A charming introduction is the film The Sound of Fakebokk Brasileirinho, available at Netflix.


Bob Draznik Post Edited The melody of that Bandolim choro piece reminds me of something, almost certainly a number from a stage musical, but I can’t quite place it. It’s not the identical tune, but — did Bandolim write it as a variation on an older tune? Jacob given name Jacob Bittencourt recorded this inso it might have been composed around that time. Vibracoes is renowned in the genre, often described by the great players as the most beautiful of all choro melodies. The tune is often played very freely.

This sublime performance is by the folks who are teaching at the workshop next spring: Post Edited You have to be able to play the “INK” then learn the most appropriate means of ornamentation once you have that down fakebooo about learning to improvise in the correct style.

I find the music of Pixinguinha to be about the most challenge from a technical point of view. If you have a chance fakebopk Choro channel on pandora plays a lot of actual Pixinnguinha. He was a monster on flute.

Here is one of the harder tunes of his that I recorded the www. Choro does not so often require sustained tonguing, but you need it for forro music, which choro players also like. That’s the music I use for tonguing practice, e. One of the most talented composers of choro among other styles is Pixinguinha. Chori Cohen often plays his “1 x 0”.

I recently bought a couple of books with 24 of his choros 12 in each hcoro. They are in the playalong format with music and CD. Each song has a version in Bb, Eb and C. The distinctive feature of fakwbook books is that they are based on some anthological recordings made chro Pixinguinha himself and Benedito Lacerda.

The authors transcribed the parts for both the melody and the counterpoint. Although the melody is played by the flute it can be replaced cohro the clarinet, when using the CD. Here are a few examples from the original recordings made in He originally played the flute chodo due to health issues had to switch to the tenor sax. So in chorro recordings he is playing the counterpoint on sax while Lacerda plays the flute. Although most of the composition are said to be from Pixinguinha and Lacerda they are actually only from Pixinguinha.

He was facing serious finacial problems at the time.

Lacerda helped by paying his mortgage and in exchange was put as co author of the songs. Anyway the books are really fantastic. Unfortunatelly the website that sells the books is all in Portuguese, which might be a problem for most. Here is a bit more chor about it in English in case you are interested.

Abel Silva, one of the greatest clarinet players of choro, playing his most famous composition: Vibracoes, is in the Bandolim chkro along from Choromusic. When I work with my guitar player we usually go with a little more rubato in it.


Choro Fakebook

I was very fortunate to get to work with Charlie Byrd back in the mid s when he turned me on to the music of Nazareth and Bandolim. This music is so much fun to play. I’ve been including a few on my klezmer concerts and every once in a while I’ve been known to play them on cnoro synth.

A significant development has been Almir Chediak’s Choro Songbook series, in which every tune is transcribed in both parts.

Chediak’s work is said to be authoritative and very faithful to the originals.

The Clarinet BBoard

I don’t know if there is any hope of Bb versions. I have entered a number of tunes with very complete or interesting countermelodies into a notation program, which gets me Bb has well as treble clef for the low part I don’t read bass clef. This makes for wonderful duets with bass clarinet.

Why is it that almost every Choro recording that hear does not use a Bass, upright or electric? I’ve just visited your page in the soundcloud and I’m listening to your recordings.

I’m sending the link to some friends. Thanks for posting those recordings! There seems to be some great klezmer recordings there too! I’m looking forward to listening to those as well. John, No, unfortunately this is not the book I’m talking about. This is from another publisher, choromusic. Although they have some good play along books for other composers this one for Pixinguinha is not the best.

For one the songs are not his most well known ones. While the other book has all his famous and great choros. The one I’m talking about is from Irmaos Vitale. Here is a link with text in English about the book, with images and all: Choro Duetos The books themselves have the text in both English and Portuguese but what good is that if they are not available to everyone in an international website?

It has a link to buy the book but it sends you to the publisher’s website in Portuguese, which is a bit lame. As for Almir Chediak’s Choro Songbook series, yes they are great.

He has a big list of songbooks to his name. Like you mentioned though they are not meant for Bb instruments. There are loads of different formations for a choro ensemble. Old recordings with bass are not rare at all. Click on the link below for an image of Pixinguinha with a bass player by his side. Pixinguinha and bass player Most of the time though it is the 7 string acoustic guitar that is used for this purpose.

It seems to me that “portable” easy to transport band instruments are favored over the heavier instruments. Cassio Post Edited I’m a Brazilian computer engineering student who’s passionate fakkebook choro.
