Elizeth Cardoso: Ary Amoroso

Album Notes

Elizeth Cardoso is one of the most important Brazilian singers. Her deep emotional range, turned possible by her flexible and big voice, aroused through decades the passionate admiration of millions of listeners in Brazil and abroad. This album is dedicated to one of Brazil's best popular composers, Ary Barroso. Covering such classics as "Inquietaçao," "Pra Machucar Meu Coraçao," "Folhas Mortas," "Faixa de Cetim," "Na Batucada Da Vida," "Camisa Amarela," and many others, Cardoso confirms her superior expressiveness, backed by a precious set of musicians, which includes the great late Rafael Rabello, in a typically careful, profound and respectful production by Hermínio Bello de Carvalho. He delved deeply in the universe of texts, recordings, and news surrounding Amoroso to prospect the right word, the right expression, the right phrase; as in all composers widely recorded and already deceased, Amoroso's works suffer from the missing of some details, and the changing of text by the several interpreters. The result is a wonderful tribute where music, lyrics, vocal, and instrumental renditions get together to present an immortal document. Attention to the lyrics of "Na Batucada Da Vida," which tells the story of a girl who got lost in life -- sort of an autobiographic note, as Cardoso was in her early career a taxi-girl herself after her failed marriage. ~ Alvaro Neder
