Ernesto Nazareth  (1863-1934)
Last updated: 17.10.18
According to the Internet source given below, Ernesto Nazareth was a Brazilian composer who was born and lived throughout his life in Rio de Janeiro. He was taught piano by his mother and then Eduardo Madeira and Lucien Lambert. He published his first work, " Voce bem sabe" - a polka-lunda when only 14 years old. He composed some 300 short piano works capturing the essence of popular Brazilian dance music essentially the samba, maxixe, batuque, and most importantly, the tango. Some commentators believe that the tango not only originated in Brazil but with Nazareth himself. True or not, responsibility lies in large part with Nazareth for the development of the Brazilian tango, of which he wrote more than 100.
As a pianist he became acquainted with the composer and cellist Heitor Villa-Lobos and provided inspiration to the French composer Darius Milhaud in his "Saudades do Brasil for piano".
