Na Rua dos Meus Ciúmes – Traditional Portuguese Fado

Arr. For Woodwind Quintet by Antonio F. Figueiredo

 

figueiredo.coverThis brief piece is a charming addition to the quintet repertory.  The edition comes with both score and parts; the former includes chord indications which will be helpful for student players to explore its underlying harmonies and for experienced players to come up with embellishments of their own.  The parts are clearly laid out, very easy to read, and each fits on a single page.  The publication also includes informative explanatory material about the story of underlying this particular fado, though a brief exploration of the fado as a song form, and of its history, would be welcome.  This piece would make an interesting pairing with Danzas Mecánicas by Peter Van Zandt Lane, also in the Noteworthy catalog, or with Armando Ghidoni's jazzy Badaluk-Concerto.

Mr. Figueiredo has other fado transcriptions for wind quintet, and I look forward to their appearance in the Noteworthy catalog.
