Song No. 12 — Pequeno Concerto Que Ficou Canção | Geraldo Vandré (1964)

Geraldo Vandré — Geraldo Vandré (a)

Pequeno Concerto Que Ficou Canção was introduced in 1964 by the composer himself on his self-titled debut album, with solo piano by Walter Wanderley. Originally composed for the telenovela O Sorriso de Helena, aired later that year, the melancholy and evocative song was recorded only a few times despite its indisputable beauty.

Probably the most impressive interpretation was recorded the same year by Lygia de Freitas Valle, arranged and conducted by Lindolpho Gaya, on the sole album that marked her artistic career, Lygia.

Vandré re-recorded a second version of Pequeno Concerto Que Ficou Canção in 1966 on the album 5 Anos de Canção with Heraldo do Monte and Theo de Barros on guitar, and Airto Moreira on percussion. Known as Trio Novô, this group which was created to accompany Vandré would include Hermeto Pascoal on flute the next year to become Quarteto Novô before already disbanding in 1969.

Apart from recordings by Salathiel Coelho, who arranged the song for the telenovela, Hebe Camargo and a certain Orquestra Pop de Sucessos, Toquinho’s instrumental with solo organ by Ely Arcoverde is as also very notable.

PEQUENO CONCERTO QUE FICOU CANÇÃO

Não • Não há por que mentir ou esconder • A dor que foi maior do que é capaz meu coração

Não • Nem há por que seguir • Cantando só para explicar • Não vai nunca entender de amor • Quem nunca soube amar.

Ah • Eu vou voltar pra mim • Seguir sozinho assim • Até me consumir • Ou consumir • Toda essa dor • Até sentir de novo • O coração • Capaz de amor
