Rabello plays PixinguinhaPosted: April 4, 2011
Ainda Me Recordo
composed by Pixinguinha (1897-1973)
performed by Raphael Rabello (1962-1995)
While this is not a classical guitar recording per se, it is truly a remarkable one nonetheless. Considering the vast influence of Brazilian music on our repertoire (remember that guy named Villa-Lobos?), a classical guitarist can surely take away much from this recording. The artistry of Rabello (Wikipedia), the fallen genius of the seven string Brazilian guitar, is epitomized in this opening track from his posthumously released album Cry, My Guitar (Amazon and GSP). As a classical guitarist, the raw intensity of his tone combined with the unrelenting sense of groove he projects is admirable.
