Having listened to the original which is gentle, rhythmic and wonderfully relaxed, I contrast this with the harsh attack and incredibly fast tempo that otherwise excellent CG players seem compelled to employ.
Felicidade arranged by Roland Dyens
Why don’t they just listen to Jobim and play dyfns the spirit intended? BTW, despite being a lovely arrangement, Dyens metronome mark is simply way too fast and may be contributing to the misunderstanding by CG players of the nature fellicidade the piece.
Compare, say, Jason Vieaux’s interpretation with this version: It is played really well by Vieaux and othersbut it doesn’t capture the groove—as you say, it’s the “gentle, rhythmic and wonderfully relaxed” pocket of the groove that I think is missing. Which makes me wonder whether a lower tempo mark would improve that with this particular arrangement.
What do you think, as you’re working with the piece? Look forward to hearing what you do with it! The Brazilian groove is essential here and the big players don’t appear to get it.
It also seems that CG players don’t listen much to music, they just hear another Felicidxde player in a piece and pick it up from there. That video was one I turned to and it’s great isn’t it? And so so different from the CG manner of approaching the music. Hope you’re doing well.
Hey David – no, I rather like the Dyens arrangement and if it’s played with lightness of touch, a slower tempo and most importantly the Brazilian felicodade, then I think the arrangement can capture the spirit. But it’s still very fast. Of course one is entitled to interpret as one sees fit. Dyens does swing here pretty good here though!
Or, for that matter, a fast song at a slower tempo. To me, the only question to answer is this: The uptempo Dyens arrangement works for me. He’s played it fast too like Dyens. Do you think it ‘Swings’ too? Frankly, I don’t understand the real ‘swing’ feel.
Is there’s no guarantee we could swing -if we played it rhythmically perfect like in the score? His fountain pen made me ashamed of my writing brushes and Chinese writing paper’ – Puyi ‘I don’t write music to be difficult, only to be more like itself’ – Harrison Birtwistle. It is worth recalling the lyrics of the song, after all, which speak to the evanescence of happiness in our lives in the lives of the working poor especially, who scratch all year to provide themselves with a moment’s bliss during Carnival, which passes quickly and fades away forever.
It is a very bittersweet song, really, and it should not sound like “let’s party! Just my 2 cents.

I like the brilliant arrangement by Dyens as music. But, for me, it is no longer A Felicidade. It has been transfigured into something else entirely. Personally, I don’t like this played too fast. I have listened to the various ‘tubes’ and I must say it’s a fancy piece. As a big fan of bossa I agree they play it too fast, and what Polifemo said The intention of the song is lost in the pyrotechnics And I wouldn’t mind a go myself Is there a score out there?
Basically what El Colibri, Paganini Caprice 24 and York’s Sunburst were to previous generations of slick virtuosi with seriously nimble and super quick chops.

Ray Thanks for the interesting post. There is, of course, the Bellinati arrangement which I think comes closer to probing the real heart of this music yet, somehow, not quite!
Thanks for the reference to that website, Ray! Last edited by Ray on Thu Aug 20, 8: Board index All times are UTC.
