This music was given to me for distribution by Fernando Silveira, Clarinet Professor at Rio de Janeiro University.
The music provided is a Concertino by Francisco Mignone, in three movements. The first movement is a "classical" movement similiar Mozart's concerto. The second movement is a Modinha , a Portuguese word, which would be translated into English as possibly "a Tune", similiar to the Aria from Bachianas Brasileiras no. 5 by Villa-Lobos. The last movement is a Choro , one kind of samba.
The other music is "Um Chorinho em Aldeia". It is very dificult to translate, but would be considered "A litlle choro in Aldeia". Aldeia is a name of a city in Rio de Janeiro State. Fernando made the arrangment; the composer is Severino Araujo. Severino Araujo is a clarinet player and a "band leader"(more or less like the American Benny Goodman).
The .enc files are in Encore 4.0 format.
