Fantaisies : sept pièces pour pianoPartition, Format 22 x 32 cm, 24 pages, avec partie séparée de la pièce Marcel, pour piano 4 mains.Compositeur Maria Inês Guimaraes.Ce recueil est un voyage musical à travers des compositions créées dans une pensée esthétique éclectique. Assez courtes, ces pièces lient un certain néoclassicisme aux modes d’écriture des musiques contemporaines et, dans deux d’entre elles, aux rythmes brésiliens. Les formes utilisées sont très diversifiées et construites par des traits contrastés qui sont comme des passerelles menant à une évasion singulière. Maria Inês propose aux jeunes pianistes, entre la 3e et la 6e année d’apprentissage, une rigueur d’écriture, mais sans figer la partition. Elle laisse aussi au duo professeur-élève, s’il le souhaite, un champ de possibilités à explorer selon leurs parcours et leurs sensibilités.Maria Inês Guimarães est pianiste concertiste, compositrice, musicologue, pédagogue. Elle est présidente du Centre Euro-brésilien de Musique (Cebramusik) et du Club de Choro de Paris et professeur de piano et improvisation libre au Conservatoire d’Antony depuis 1999. Elle a réalisé ses études musicales au Brésil dans le cadre classique et a aussi une formation en musiques improvisées. En France, depuis 1988, Maria Inês a étudié à l’École Normale de Paris et elle a soutenu un doctorat en Histoire de la Musique et Musicologie à la Sorbonne-Paris IV. Son œuvre en tant que compositrice et interprète est publiée en Europe et en Amérique Latine. Sa discographie comporte onze CD : Alma Brasileira, Fronteras Latinas, Nepomuceno, Oswald, Danses et oiseaux du Brésil, Dominica in Palmis-Lobo de Mesquita, Saudades das Selvas Brasileiras-Villa-Lobos, Axuí, Primavera, Contrepoint-Villa-Lobos-Kurtág et Norte e Sul.

Media : Book/CD SetAuthor : by Drew Beisswenger and Gordon McCannLevel : BeginningDate published : 9/24/2008Style : Fiddle TunesType : SolosDescription :This book, which includes 308 tune transcriptions, is organized around individual fiddlers who typically combine Appalachian-style fiddling with rags, pop standards, Midwest-style fiddling and sometimes a touch of Western swing to create a style often identifiable as Ozarks. Thirty Ozarks fiddlers and their lives are highlighted with biographical sketches, photographs, and tune histories. Another 50 great Ozarks fiddlers are presented in a similar manner but with less detail. The book and accompanying CD (with 37 tunes, many recorded in the field) emphasize the older fiddling traditions connected to the square dances and community events more than those connected to bluegrass music and modern contest fiddling. Some of the tunes in the collection are old standbys such as Bile Them Cabbage while others such as Finley Creek Blues are unique to the region.The book is the result of years of work by two respected researchers. Gordon McCann won the prestigious Missouri Arts Award in 2002 for his decades of work documenting, studying, and accompanying Ozarks fiddle music. Drew Beisswenger, a music librarian at Missouri State University with a Ph.D. in ethnomusicology, has published three other works about fiddle music and is known for his strong transcription and analysis skills.
