My Love Always Remains
(Duo, Trio or Quartet)
Music is one of the most powerful ways to transport us to our affective memories. The work by Claudio Nucci has this power, because his repertoire includes songs that have been impregnated in everybody’s memories, including “Sapato Velho” (with Mú Carvalho and lirics of Paulinho Tapajós), “A Hora e a Vez” (with Zé Renato and lirics of Ronaldo Bastos), “Toada” (with Zé Renato and lirics of Juca Filho) and “Quero Quero” (with Mauro Assumpção), among others.
Claudio Nucci uses his simple and elegant musicality to touch our hearts not only in a romantic fashion, expressed in “Quero Viver Com Você (Claudio Nucci), “Estrela Soberana” (with Arlindo Cruz) or “A Chuva e a Rosa” (with Murilo Antunes), but also using a great sense of humor, like in "Suíte da Empregada Completa", (a note-wedding proposal that the boss leaves to his maid, song by Nucci and lyrics by Luiz Fernando Gonçalves), or the ironic and intelligent language of his songs ”Amanda”, "Passante", “Por Motivo Bom” (with Paulo César Pinheiro), ”O Meu Amor Sempre Sobra" (with Ana Terra), “Coração Vadio” (with Paulinho Tapajós) and “Coração Guia” (with Eliakin Rufino). The script of this show also includes other famous songs such as “Amor Aventureiro” (Claudio Nucci), “Neném” (Maurício Maestro) and “Mistérios” (Maurício Maestro and Joyce), as well as his interpretations for songs composed by Tom and Vinícios in “Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar”, and Dorival Caymmi, in “Só Louco” and “Sábado em Copacabana”.
(Duo, Trio or Quartet)
The diversity of various regional Brazilian cultures is the main theme of this show. With a wide spectrum of melodies and poetic messages, and a script that mixes a little bit of everything he has produced and presented lately, the show also cites the origins of this diversity, in pieces of great composers that have influenced his carrier (Caymmi, Tom, Chico, Edu and Milton). He also presents other pieces such as "Baião Levado", "A Porca Torce o Rabo no Forrobodó”, “Ora Essa, Ora Bolas” and “Passeio em BH” (with Murilo Antunes), “Penedo” (with Luiz Fernando Gonçalves), "Rio de Março" (with Felipe Cerquize) and “Aboio” (by Sergio Santos and Paulo César Pinheiro), and some of his famous songs, such as “Acontecência” (with Juca Filho), “Pelo Sim, Pelo Não” (with Zé Renato and Juca Filho), and "Casa da Lua Cheia" (with Paulo César Pinheiro), among others. Going deeper into regional music, Claudio shows songs he wrote with Cacaso ("Na Minha Casa", "Melhor de Três", "As Coisas"), Paulinho Tapajós ("Forró pra Namorar”, “Viola x Violão” and “Chuvarada”), and Juca Filho (“Sabiá do Meu Brasil”). Other songs in the script include “Suíte dos Bois”, inspired in the “toadas de Boi do Maranhão”: “Bela Cigana” (by Almirzinho Gabriel), ”Mimoso" (by Ronald Pinheiro,), “Bela Mocidade”, (by Donato Alves) and “Som Meio Boi”, (by Nucci and Babal Galvão). Still, a tribute of samba, in performances of famous songs like “O Poder da Criação” (João Nogueira and Paulo César Pinheiro) and the “sambas de enredo” “A Lenda das Sereias”, “O Amanhã” and “É Hoje!”.
For Ever, Paulinho
(Duo, Trio ou Quartet)
Paulinho Tapajós was one of the greatest exponents of Brazilian music, with his lyrics and songs. With historical and definitive partnerships of the MPB songbook, such as "Andança" (with Danilo Caymmi and Edmundo Souto), "Irmãos Coragem" (with Nonato Buzar), "Cantiga por Luciana" (with Edmundo Souto), "Sapato Velho" Mú Carvalho and Claudio Nucci) and others, he left other jewelry, like the two letters for the sambas that Nelson Cavaquinho gave him, "Coração Poeta" and "Do Funndo do Armário". He also composed songs with Sivuca, Marcelo Lessa and others. This show features other songs from his repertoire and Claudio Nucci presents this mosaic by Paulinho Tapajós with re-readings adapted to his unique way of playing the guitar and singing, but also respecting the originality of the compositions. It is a good request to delve into a repertoire light, fun, deep, sensitive and as rich as this one by Paulinho Tapajós.
