Hi.

I'm looking for literature about the classical guitar in Brazil. All kinds of information is interesting like who wrote the first piece for classical guitar in Brazil, list of composers, important guitarists and so on. I’m looking for any kind of text: articles, books, dissertations, etc. I’m primarily looking for literature regarding the classical music, not popular music.

Marius, the very first name on that list should be Americo Jacomino, also known as Canhoto. He's considered the first milestone in the creation of a Brazilian identify for solo guitar. His most famous piece is "Abismo de Rosas".

Are you looking to just put together a list or also looking to compile biographical information, discography, catalogs, etc?

Eugenio, I'm looking for all kinds of information. Want to put together a short chronological history of the evolvement of the guitar in Brazil from the very first piece written up to today’s composers and guitarists.

I'l check out Canhoto.

Thanks, Marius

Your list has some mistakes. The following musicians are from popular music.

Pixinguinha (1898–1973) (Brazil)

Barroso, Ary (1903–1964) (Brazil)

Gonzaga, Luis (1912–1989) (Brazil)

Garoto (Annibal Augusto Sardinha) (1915–1955) (Brazil)

Almeida, Laurindo (1917–1995) (Brazil, USA)

Bonfa, Luiz (Brazil) 1922

Azevedo, Waldyr (1923–1980) (Brazil)

Jobim, Antonio Carlos (1927–1994) (Brazil)

Nogueira, Paulinho (Brazil) 1929

Baden-Powell, Roberto (Brazil) 1937

Maybe some of them had played classical music at some time but all of them are recognized as popular musicians.

Waldyr Azevedo was not a guitarist he used to play cavaquinho (a very small guitar of Portuguese origin). Pixinguinha was saxophonist and flutist. Ary Barroso was pianist. Luiz Gonzaga played concertina.

Good luck.

Renato.
