Milton Nascimento started his farewell with a big show – 06/12/2022 – photo

Since announcing his farewell to the stage last month, Milton Nascimento has caused a stir among fans, leading more than 100,000 people to the digital queue to get tickets.

In the first of 18 shows on the international tour “The Last Music Session”, the noise increased even more. With tickets sold out, Bituca surprised viewers – still somewhat stunned by the news – by introducing “Para Lennon and McCartney,” the seventh in the repertoire of the show held on Saturday night (11). , in the Cidade das Artes, Rio. de Janeiro, his hometown.

But that was just the beginning of many reactions that evening. In a manner and with the right to change clothes in public, the “pre-premiere” is dedicated to friends, artists and the 800 lucky ones who managed to get the NFT (short for unusable token) Ticket Pass. As expected, it was a worthy farewell start to the undisputed heritage.

For two hours on stage, sitting and translating 27 songs, Milton Nascimento remained faithful to jazz, samba-jazz, sacred music and the march of the “Geraes” —including the noise of a train through the work of the entire composer — with the exception of the Beatles-era rock. In fact, a careful look is enough to see the integrity of an artist, the relentless movement of his left hand.

The owners of songs like “Quem Sabe Isso Quer Dizer Amor” and “Mais Bonito Não Há” came to the point when they remembered the important moments in their work. Find out why “Encontros e Despedidas”, “Ponta de Areia”, “Cio da Terra”, “Nos Bailes da Vida” and “Travessia” are a must, with Fernando Brant, who promoted the recording of the album first artist, in 1967.

But why did Milton Nascimento decide it was time to say goodbye to the stage? “Living now after 60 years of work is proof that dreams don’t grow old,” Bituca said, avoiding the farewell speech.

And the show went on in full swing-the atmosphere that ended was limited to the entrance to the showroom, where some fans cried when they saw a mural with photos, documents, reports and records of the work of musicians. The audience enthusiastically sang and applauded for most of the show.

On the platform, a thin young man to Bituca’s left caught his attention. His name is José Ibarra, just 25 years old from Rio de Janeiro, vocalist, keyboardist and one of the composers of the band Dônica, which includes Lucas Nunes (guitar), Miguel Guimarães (bass) and Tom Veloso (composition and guitar) – the latter, son of Caetano and Paula Lavigne.

“A lot of new people do amazing things with music,” Milton said before singing “Nos Bailes da Vida”.

Although carioca, Bituca found music in Minas. This Minas das Montanhas covers an important part of the show (“Geraes”), as well as the traditional Minas Gerais (“Cálix Bento”).

From the age of 13, Milton Nascimento spoke on the street. On this tour, he is also celebrating his 80th birthday, which ends on October 26th.

Details of the art of signage. It is a hand -made design by Milton in his childhood, called the “Serra de Três Pontas”, a famous painting that adorned the cover of the 1976 “Geraes”.

Milton Nascimento also brought in famous artists to help him, such as Tom Jobim, Elis Regina (whom he described as “the greatest love of my life”), Agostinho dos Santos, Quincy Jones and Eumir Deodato, in addition to collaborations which. entered history, as did those with Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, in addition to good old friends Lô Borges and the Minas Gerais club Clube da Esquina.

Milton’s first song recorded as a professional, “Barulho De Trem,” began in 1962, a year before he moved to Belo Horizonte, where, before he found music, he planned to study economics. But if not, it’s all there.

The delay in returning after the last song has raised concerns and doubts in the air: will this really be the last song?

After recording 43 albums, five Grammy awards and the title of Doctor Honoris Causa in Music from the University of Berklee, Boston, Milton — who now lives in Juiz de Fora — is preparing to sing his song. largest in other cities in Brazil as well as in Europe – Italy, the United Kingdom, Portugal and Switzerland – and in the United States.

A week after the farewell announcement from the stage, Bituca announced four more shows in São Paulo, at Espaço Unimed, and added six in total, on August 26, 27, 28 and 29 and 1 and Sept. 2.

According to the artist’s production, there are already more than 100,000 tickets to the shows in Brazil. Bituca will also make two presentations in Rio de Janeiro, Aug. 6 and 7 at the Jeunesse Arena, and one in Belo Horizonte, Nov. 13, in Mineirão, which is seen as the end of the tour.
