The most innovative aspect in this composition by Edvaldo Cabral is without a doubt the organic form but not conventional as he develops the theme/variations sequences. Instead of short blocks, as they commonly occur in this genre, the formal process follows a coherent development imposed through an inner need of expression which is rendered in a logical sequence of feelings.

List of Works by Edvaldo Cabral
1) José Carrión Dominguez was born in 1924 in Valladolid, Spain, and died in 1987 in Recife, Brazil. A virtuoso guitarist and violoncellist, he was also a distinguished pianist. He had prepared himself to perform works for all three instruments with orchestra in a unique concert but this project ended without completion.
In 1965, Carrión performed, for the first time in Brazil, the Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo. On other occasions he performed works like the Guitar Concerto in D Major by Mário Castelnuovo-Tedesco and the Violoncello Concerto by Joseph Haydn.
José Carrión studied guitar with Rosa Loret (a pupil of Miguel Llobet), vihuela with Emilio Pujol and violoncello with Juan Bich Santa Suzana, having concluded his studies in 1944 (violoncello) and 1946 (guitar and vihuela). Between 1945 and 1953 José Carrión worked as first violoncellist for the Philharmonic Orchestra of Las Palmas de Gran Canária and also as a teacher at the local Conservatory.
José Carrión came to Brazil in 1953 where he remained until his death. In 1955, he worked as a violoncellist with the Symphony Orchestra of Porto Alegre.
In 1961, following an invitation from Pater Jaime Diniz, José Carrión came to teach violoncello and, two years later, also guitar at the Federal University of Pernambuco, in Recife where he was the catalyst for a strong movement in favor of the guitar. Among his students were the brothers Edvaldo Cabral and Edilson Eulalio, Antonio Madureira, Djalma Marques, Fidja Siqueira, Henrique Annes, Napoleão Costa Lima, Mauro Maibrada, Vital Joffily and many others.

2) Napoleão Costa Lima (born in 1950) studied guitar in Brazil and in Germany where he also studied historical musicology and ethnomusicology. He acted in several music schools in Germany and in Brazil as a visiting professor at the Federal University of Pernambuco.
Through his performances in several music festivals in Europe, Napoleão Costa Lima stood out as a soloist and pedagogue, having taught many master classes and given seminars besides lectures and workshops on guitar techniques. Between 1996 and 2000 he had also acted as assistant for the Uruguayan guitarist and composer Abel Carlevaro whose disciple he had become during his stay in Germany.
As an instrumental theoretician, Napoleão Costa Lima is the creator of a new School for guitar technique, having already spread throughout Europe and that has given impulse to a guitaristic movement in the States of Pernambuco and Paraiba. Since the year 2000 Napoleão Costa Lima has been responsible for the review, edition and publishing of the works by Edvaldo Cabral at the Matepis Produtos Musicais Ltda. ( Go back to the main text)
