about

originally a song built in the “toada” form, dry and melancholic, typical of northeastern brazil,
the lost love from the distant, almost mythical past gained another poetic spectrum with marcelo caldi´s arrangement, creating a bridge between brazilian dry lands and humid argentinean river plate, land of one of the composer’s musical passions: astor piazzola. “and now i sing quietly, within this mourning empty. Peace, ocasionaly war. Were we in river banks? Were we in hortensia sheds? Above, thousands of stars. Antonieta of april, our days have long passed...”

lyrics

O sonho de antonieta

"Vestida con mantos negros
piensa que el mundo es chiquito
y el corazón es inmenso"
– Federico Garcia Lorca

antonieta nasceu a 29 de abril
o sonho de antonieta era viver no passado
era ganhar de presente um sonho vão, acordado
antonieta de abril, se lembra dos nossos dias?
a porta aberta de frio, antonieta de abril...

qual sete palmos de terra, hoje a saudade no peito
amor, reza por quem erra
por que parti desse jeito?
porque trago no meu corpo as marcas do amor perfeito
antonieta de abril, se lembra dos nossos dias?
nosso abandono macio, antonieta de abril.....

agora canto em silêncio, nesse lamento vazio
a paz, por vezes a guerra
era uma beira de rio
era um telheiro de hortênsia, estrelas pra mais de mil
antonieta de abril, distantes vão nossos dias
mais um outono de frio, antonieta de abril...
