Ponteio II

( Celso Machado )

This is the second piece from a little suite, titled Ponteios (bridges) by the Brazilian Celso Machado. An almost acid theme which should be played with great energy and dynamics. Specifically the last part lends itself to a huge crescendo, which should diminish completely in the last measures.

Celso Machado was born in 1953 in Ribeirao Preto in the vicinity of Sao Paulo. His family was extremely musical. He studied guitar with amongst others Oscar M. Guerra and became famous in Brasil as guitarist and percussionist. He composes a number of collections which are clearly rooted in Brazilian popular music, though he also composes quite some 'modern latin'.

If you like to play this music: it belongs to the collection Ponteios Brasiliennes, available at music publisher Henri Lemoine, number 24894 H.L.
