Pattapio Silva


Aside from his virtuosity within the flute, the primary need for Patápio Silva comes from the grade of his compositions, even now getting recorded today by prominent music artists. He wrote greater than a thousand compositions and agreements. Among the uncommon composers and instrumentalists from Brazil’s Belle Époque to withstand to the passage of years, he’s also an excellent source for learning the custom which gave delivery to all or any Brazilian instrumental music, the “música de barbeiros” (barber’s music), which he was, at exactly the same time, a keeper and reformer. His dad was a barber, and like the vast majority of them at those occasions, a musician within the significant amount of leisure time between two customers. A tinplate flute participant, he trained Patápio extremely early to try out that instrument, allowing him in 1896 at age group 16 to become listed on the music group Aurora Cataguasense in the town where he spent his child years, Cataguases, MG. Regardless of as an upstate town, there was a dynamic musical environment there, with nascent music societies, each sponsored by way of a different industry, contending between themselves, such as for example Sociedade Musical Harpa de David (1900) and Sociedade Musical 7 de Setembro. In 1899, currently living in the town of Palma, during Holy Week commemorations he interpreted sacred compositions of dad José Maurício, a significant author of Brazilian Baroque. Within the market was a Cuban maestro and composer, Francisco Lucas Duchesne, who’d end up being highly important in Patápio’s profession through his teachings of solfeggio and theory. Shortly Patápio still left Cataguases to execute in several rings in upstate Rio de Janeiro, as São Fidélis, Miracema, Santo Antônio de Pádua, and Campos, getting conductor of the city’s Lira de Guarany, the main of the spot. He had been a author of innumerable bits of many genres, writing within this event the dobrado “Pessoa de Barros,” focused on his protector. In 1901 he transferred to the town of Rio de Janeiro, hitch-hiking within a teach baggage wagon, having just his solid wood flute along with a ten-tostõha sido bill. Always attempting between his ideals and craving for food, he proved helpful as typographer and barber and concurrently studied during the night on the Liceu de Artes e Ofícios with the Instituto Nacional de Música, today the well-known Escola de Música da UFRJ, where he improved his flute using teacher Duque Estrada Meyer. He still would research French, tranquility, and performing. It must be pressured the comparison between that youthful crossbred uneducated fellow as well as the snobbish establishing from the I.N.M. In those instances, Brazil shown the Eurocentric ideals brought through its colonization, and it had been important to possess all French, Italian, and German erudite composers at the end of the fingertips, while was incredibly distasteful to try out Brazilian well-known music. When Estrada was went to by that youngster who wished to research there, he couldn’t help laughing at his device: unpacking it from your used newspapers which served like a case, Patápio created an solid wood flute, with some openings and some secrets. But, as he proceeded to try out, gradually Estrada transformed his feeling, from amused to interested, after that to mystified and lastly to enthusiastic and affectionate. Patápio not merely offered his very own repertoire, but performed at first-sight all music demanded with the teacher. So, he asked Patápio to visit his home on a regular basis to obtain classes also before matriculated on the I.N.M. In 1902, he provided himself within an I.N.M recital with personal enthusiastic press references. Throughout that period he also had taken some leaves of lack to try out in other metropolitan areas with similar achievement. But that didn’t prevent him from accumulating I.N.M.’s optimum awards, towards the degree that he was most disliked by his co-workers. In another of these reunions, following a three-minute flute cadenza with prodigious modulations, he was enthusiastically embraced from the Baron of Rio Branco, who wanted to present him anything he desire as something special. Facetious Patápio requested a “beautiful Chile hat the same as Your Excellency’s,” and then day time he was offered one. The Institute’s competition of Dec, 1903 got an additional high quality which would produce a controversy. A female of the culture provided a silver-plated flute for the champion. Patápio was the champion. Within the solemn event from the delivery, the flute was lacking. The repercussion was extreme, specifically in the press, and the number of humor tabloids concentrated in the actual fact that the champion of the élite competition was an unhealthy upstate mulatto. The flute was finally discovered, however, not the thief. In 1901, Patápio agreed upon a contract using the initial label of Brazil, Casa Edison (Odeon), to starting recording simultaneously. He still would record for Casa Vieira Machado, Casa Bevilacqua, and Casa Ernesto Augusto Maltas. The entire documented stock portfolio of Patápio’s compositions are “Amor Perdido,” “Zinha,” “Variaçõha sido de Flauta,” “Margarida,” “Serenata de Amor,” “Primeiro Amor,” and “Sonho.” Furthermore, he also documented “Noturno no.1” and “Noturno zero. 2” (F. Chopin), “Allegro” (Adolf Terschak), “Serenata” (Gaitano Braga), “Só Em virtude de Moer” (Viriato Figueira da Silva), “Serenata Oriental” (Ernesto Köhler), “Alvorada das Rosas” (Júlio Reis), and “Serenata” (Franz Schubert). Each one of these pieces, apart from both “Noturnos,” had been reissued in series on Monumentos da Música Popular Brasileira — Operating-system Pioneiros, V.1, EMI Odeon. These recordings had been popular and offered very well, specifically after Patápio’s demise. Using the improvement of technology enabling fresh recordings with much less scratch sounds, some label professionals devised a dishonest stratagem to market once again all Patápio’s information. They employed a flutist to transcribe precisely his solos and record them once again. The first check was using the very popular “Primeiro amor.” Techie information, respiration technique, and general personality didn’t move unperceived by Patápio’s faithful market, which protected with ridicule that immoral attempt. Patápio was also the inventor, a minimum of in Brazil, from the flute technique known as right here “dugue-dugue,” where extremely proficient solo music artists harmonize and bassline their very own melodies simultaneously. Choosing to overcome São Paulo after having doing this in Rio, Patápio requested a recommendation notice (probably compiled by Duque Estrada) and departed filled with hopes. Buying illustrious teacher of the administrative centre, he was dismissed under believe excuses. Then had to withstand the hard check of prejudice, until he finally got the chance of his initial concert in São Paulo. Triumph was overall. After his achievement of press critics and market, that teacher found him providing his assistance for another presentation, that was kindly refused. In Apr, 1905, Patápio is at São Paulo when Duque Estrada passed away. Patápio, because the greatest and probably the most granted musician of I.N.M., was the organic choice to achieve success him. It had been a great shock for all to find out his rival Pedro de Assis consider the seat following a few hours of Estrada’s decease, because of Assis’ personal relationships with Minister Seabra. Patápio continued in São Paulo, playing disputed concerts, providing flute classes, and composing music for operettas and takes on like the crisis Mancha que limpa (Feb, 1906). Amongst his substantial deeds it might be described that he was solicited from the Presidency from the Republic to provide an especial demonstration for Chief executive Afonso Pena on the Palácio perform Catete, therefore he do. But his wish, as was the imagine all musicians of this period, was to enjoy in European countries. He aimed to assemble the necessary financing for that organization by arranging a tour through South. At March 14, 1907, he journeyed to that area, collecting enthusiastic press critics, you start with concerts in Curitiba PR, from March 18 to March 30. His concerts had been gala events within the majestic Guaíra movie theater, with the current presence of the Armed forces Music Band playing through the intervals with Patápio getting associated with the Orfeão Paranaense orchestra. Patápio implemented his itinerary towards Florianópolis, arriving there at Apr 12. Using the press currently composing excitedly about him, he find the time of Apr 18 for his first display there. Anxiously waiting around, the concert was successively postponed using the press announcing that Patápio got caught a solid influenza plus a high fever. He previously, in fact, captured difteria. At two a.m. on Apr the 24th, 1907, he passed away. But his genius wasn’t to become overlooked. His “Oriental, opus 6” was documented in 1913 by flutist Agenor Bens (Casa Edison). In 1928 saxophonist Lazário Teixeira documented 1904’s “Variaçõsera de flauta” beneath the name “Fantasia de concerto” (Parlophon). During Patápio’s demise jubilee in 1957, virtuose flutist Altamiro Carrilho documented the LP Revivendo Patápio (Copacabana). Carlos Poyares included “Margarida,” “Primeiro Amor,” and “Zinha” in his Som de Prata, Flauta de Lata LP (Marcus Pereira). In 1967, flutist Lenir Siqueira documented the LP Relembrando Patápio (Odeon), associated with Alceu Bocchino (piano).
