This treatise focuses on the chamber music by Brazilian composer Marlos Nobre featuring the flute. Nobre's catalogue contains more than 250 works, twenty of which feature the flute in a solo or chamber context. The flute works include solo pieces, to chamber music, and two concerti. Ten of these pieces are original compositions for flute, and the other ten have been rearranged or re-orchestrated by the composer to feature the instrument. Nobre is one of Brazil's foremost composers of the twentieth century. His unique compositional style combines elements of Brazilian folclore and popular music, with atonal, and at times serial, compositional techniques.
This document contains a brief overview of Brazilian art music, including how it originated, developed, and reached a point where it began to be identified as national. It also includes relevant biographical information and a short description of Nobre's self-identified compositional periods, and analyses of four of his original works featuring the flute. The goal of this research project is to identify and describe the elements of national style that are present in his works written according to contemporary musical practices. The four pieces selected to be analyzed are: Wind Quintet Op. 29 (1968), Solo I Op. 60 (1984), Amazônia Ignota for baritone, flutes, piano and percussion Op. 95 (2003), and Opus Lateinamerika for flute and guitar Op. 108 (2009). I also included as an appendix a list of all of Nobre's works written for the instrument, which was extracted from his catalogue.
