SaudaÃ§Ãµes Egberto – DÃ©lia Fischer
Delia Fischer welcomes Egberto Gismonti in her disk sponsored by SESC Rio de Fomento Ã Cultura.
Since her childhood, Delia Fischer is the devout of Egberto GismontiÂ´s albums. Can you imagine that little girl with the LPs around in bed, the sound on high, listening over and over A and B sides of wafers. The girl grew up and chose to live of music. She became a renowned pianist, began composing and writing arrangements until one day she decided to sing. In 1999, she manage to work with Egberto. He produced and released the album âAntonioâ through his label Carmo / ECM, which reverberated in the world. The album name was chosen by him and is a tribute to her son.
At this moment, a friendship between both musicians was born. Delia Fischer always dreamed of revisiting the work of Egberto Gismonti. And she really did: dressing themes with new arrangements, ordering letters from the greatest lettring artists, stamping with her fingerprint the production of the multi-instrumentalist and composer. The fact of winning the 2010 SESC Rio de Fomento Culture Award, was decisive and the CD âSaudaÃ§Ãµes Egbertoâ is the result of a dream. Not coincidentally, the music “O sonho” (1969), was chosen to open the disc. “It was the year of the manâs arrival in the moon. Despite all opposition, the music is still continuing today. Sacha Amback participated in a beautiful way doing an electronic interlude “she recalls, smiling.
The launch was done in a short season in the Arena Area SESC in Copacabana, between the 22th and the 26th of June. In the show, Delia is accompanied by Pedro Guedes (guitar, bass and armadillo guitar), Peter Mibielli (violin, cellolino, mandolin, small guitar and fiddle) and Naife SimÃµes (percussion, drums, flugelhorn and vocal percussion) – ie the same band of the studio, where Paulinho Moska and Egberto Gismonti also participated. Moska sings with her in the track “Another look at / (Pendulum),” whose letter was ordered by Ronaldo Bastos especially for the disk, and Egberto plays his 10 strings guitar in the title track, along with Paulo Cesar Pinheiro.
To choose the repertoire, Delia heard again all the master disks, “which are still current, incredibly exciting and that made me want to play, compose and enter in the musical universe, with the great advantage that I can now perform with maturity, adding a bit of my own vision.” She paid particular attention to the first stage of production of the musical composer, the most “popular” one, in the 1970s and 1980s, when he used abundantly the song format, with or without lyrics. “Egberto is a musician who has all the tools to create symphonic works, songs and still have the gift of improvisation, as the great masters of the nineteenth century. All this combined with his deep knowledge of universal music and keeping the focus on Brazil, “she says.
