The oeuvre by the Brazilian composer and pianist Ernesto Nazareth (1863-1934) attracts more and more aficionados in this country. After his training, he concentrated on light entertainment and played several years in the orchestra of the Odeon cinema in Rio de Janeiro where Heitor Villa-Lobos too had played as a cellist. For him, Nazareth wrote the same-titled tango, and the fellow composer praised him as 'the true embodiment of the Brazilian soul'. It was his 88 tangos that made Nazareth one of the most influential Brazilian composers of the 20th century. The evocative piece Floraux is an impressive example of his tango art.
