Ernesto Nazareth – Ameno Reseda (a polka)

Ernesto Nazareth (1863-1934)

Ernesto Nazareth was a Brazilian composer and pianist. He is known today for his Brazilian Tangos, but he also wrote waltzes, polkas, habaneras, fox trots, sambas, and other types of dance music for the piano.

Here is a polka by Nazareth called Ameno Reseda. It is played by famous Brazilian pianist Arthur Moriera Lima (who won the 2nd prize in the Chopin International Piano Competition, the 3rd Prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition, and the 3rd prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition.) I hope that you enjoy this beautiful music.
