Villa Lobos - Bachiana nº 5 - Amel Brahim





The Bachianas Brasileiras (Portuguese pronunciation: [bakiˈɐ̃nɐz bɾaziˈlejɾɐs]) constitute a series of nine suites by the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, written for various combinations of instruments and voices between 1930 and 1945. They represent not so much a fusion between Brazilian folk and popular music on the one hand, and the style of Johann Sebastian Bach on the other, as an attempt freely to adapt a number of Baroque harmonic and contrapuntal procedures to Brazilian music (Béhague 1994, 106; Béhague 2001). Most of the movements in each suite have two titles: one "Bachian" (Preludio, Fuga, etc.), the other Brazilian (Embolada, O canto da nossa terra, etc.).



Villa-Lobos made a number of recordings of the Bachianas Brasileiras, including an integral recording of all nine compositions made in Paris in the 1950s with theFrench National Orchestra for EMI. These landmark recordings were issued in several configurations on LP, and later were reissued on CD. Other musicians, including Joan BaezEnrique BátizLeonard BernsteinNelson FreireWerner JanssenIsaac KarabtchevskyJesús López-CobosAldo ParisotMenahem PresslerMstislav RostropovichKenneth SchermerhornFelix SlatkinLeopold StokowskiMichael Tilson Thomas, and Galina Vishnevskaya have subsequently recorded the music.
Because Villa-Lobos dashed off compositions in feverish haste and preferred writing new pieces to revising and correcting already completed ones, numerous slips of the pen, miscalculations, impracticalities or even impossibilities, imprecise notations, uncertainty in specification of instruments, and other problems inescapably remain in the printed scores of the Bachianas, and require performers to take unusual care to decipher what the composer actually intended. In the frequent cases where both the score and the parts are wrong, the recordings made by the composer are the only means of determining what the composer actually intended (Round 1989, 35).

Coco Chanel!!! Chanel no 13

"I want to be part of what happens." 



Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel was a French fashion designer and founder of the Chanel brand. She was the only fashion designer to appear on Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.



BornAugust 19, 1883, Saumur, France DiedJanuary 10, 1971, Paris, France
Full nameGabrielle Bonheur Chanel


           Este final de semana fui a uma festa que foi um desbunde, Tres Chic. Uh la la!!!

           A festa toda a la francesa e inpiradissima em Coco Chanel. Aniversario de  13 anos de Julia Johnson. 





Fizemos camisetas para as modelos convidadas brancas e pretas com o logo Chanel em prata, dourado  e preto. Ficaram lindas!
Quando digo fizemos, quero dizer que so participei na execucao (tipo sweat shop mesmo!) pois, a ideia toda foi da Leia.
   

Ate mesmo os aventais tinham logo Chanel.
 Ela diz que nao! Mas, eu desconfio que Leia ate esborrifou Chanel no 5 pela casa...


              Logo na entrada encontrava-se o Red Carpet com os logos e marca de Coco.
            E logico, como nao poderia faltar milhoes de Paparazzies!!!  Onde os convidados ao chegar ja eram fotografados.
               No Red Carpet eu e minha amiga Leia, a criadora, inventora, sonhadora, produtora da festa.


O bolo era simplesmente maravilhoso, acompanhado de varios cupcakes com o logo chanel. Ele tinha o formato de uma bolsa, posicionado milimetricamente em um cakestand em ouro e crystais. Na tolha de mesa tres chic preta foram colocos logos da Chanel dourados e perolas  jogadas de maneira bem despojada (isso foi ideia minha) ficou demais!!!! 
Amei! 

O bolo e os cupcakes foram feitos pela chef Renata, maravilhosos!


A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.





Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.


As long as you know men are like children, you know everything!


Filme numero 1 sobre Coco. Ja assisti e vou ver novamente! 
Agora estou toda interessada por Coco Chanel! 


I am not young but I feel young. The day I feel old, I will go to bed and stay there. J'aime la vie! I feel that to live is a wonderful thing.









Women have always been the strong ones of the world. The men are always seeking from women a little pillow to put their heads down on. They are always longing for the mother who held them as infants.


Fashion fades, only style remains the same.

             Filme no 2 sobre Coco, este ainda nao vi!

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.

Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity.


Como nao poderia faltar,  no final da festa houve um desfile foi realizado com a modelo aniversariante, a modelo mae  e as modelos convidadas! Lindo!!!




Mal posso esperar pelo ano que vem, para ver o que Leia ira aprontar. Ah tambem, mas posso espera para visitar o ape de Coco, em Paris. Quem sabe nao vamos juntas??
