The catalogs

 

The catalogs are split into 3 different strands:

. Concert Music
. Popular Music – composition
. Popular music – arrangement

The catalog section Records offers special data of the main records performed by Radamés or other interpreters of his work.

Useful tips for score search:

I
The Catalog Popular Music > composition contains Radamés’ own compositions and some productions with eventual partners, whose arrangements may be from him and/or other arrangers

II
The Catalog Popular > arrangement contains records of Radamés’ arrangements, either for his own work or for compositions from other authors.

III
Before you start a new search, at the FILTERS colunm, click CLEAR.

IV
There is no cross search!
If a title is cataloged within the concert music section it will not be found if you search in the popular music section, and vice-versa. The same will happen if your title is cataloged within the popular music > composition section and you search in popular music > arrangement. So, once again, there is no option for crossed searches.

V
Radamés considered as concert music many of his more elaborated choros, sambas and waltzes. Examples of those would be the choro Canhoto and the waltz Uma rosa para o Pixinguinha which, although they may present strong traces of popular music, they are both cataloged  within the concert music section. Therefore, should you not find the piece of work of your wish, do not give up. Try a different option.
