another beautiful brazilian guitarist

He wasn't the greatest technician on earth (he only studied a short time with a teacher, as states his biography), he wasn't really famous outside Brazil, in spite of the many recordings available under his name, of his various talents (drawing, designing a new string instrument), but his playing is really endearing, and whatever the material, originals, bach or chico buarque, he made his point across easily.

That Bach interpretation is sublime. Thank you nicolin. I'd not heard of Nogueira before.

A lot of classical guitarists seem to play Bach because no matter how badly they screw it up, Bach saves it. This guy actually makes it better!

Beautiful. Thanks for that.

This has been one of my favorite kind of MeFi posts. The kind that force me to spawn legions of tabs in my browser and explore. Thanks!

A longer version of the chico buarque song, without video. Oh yeah. This one's going on my "learn to play" list.

Agreed, how beautiful. Calm and introspective. The plethora of classical guitar posts online I have come across show the classical guitarist as a showman, cadenzas, and technical demonstrations. This post shows the classical guitarist as an artist. He is a vessel for the music. Thank you.
