Since the beginning of his adolescence, he had frequented these houses of ill repute, like the ones in Mangue.
He was also intimately familiar with all the greatest drinking places. This was his way of loving life, and even though he knew that the tuberculosis was destroying his lungs, he never abandoned his cigarettes, drinks, or lifestyle. He was an insatiable seducer, always involving himself with several women at a time.
The cost of this was a forced marriage to Laurinda, whom he did not love, after which he declared himself a mortal enemy of marriage. Their relationship was a long and tumultuous one. Another feud, which caused a great "musical controversy," was short but with a lot of commentary. Wilson responded with "Mocinho da Vila , " The Little Boy from Vila, in which he came down on the composer and his neighborhood.
But instead of acknowledging his inability to compete with Noel Rosa, and at the same time perhaps recognizing a long term advantage from the feud, Wilson wrote Frankenstein da Vila referring to Noel's physical appearance, but the latter did not respond.
Thus ended the famous controversy. Noel Rosa was a scathing critic of the customs and politics of his time. He was fascinated with the shady side of life, while suddenly turning into its severest critic.
He was unhappy with the exploitation of poor composers by those, who bought songs. This influenced Ismael Silva to free himself from Francisco Alves. He was able to rise above the frivolity of Wilson Batista, perhaps because he recognized a budding composer, who would still be writing beautiful songs.
As a boy, he wrote pornographic lyrics for the national anthem. He counted on the inattentive ear of the radio show host and thus won the bonus for the most unpublished songs in a week on his program. Ricardo Van Steen, one of the major directors of shorts and commercials in Brazil, is preparing to confront the challenge of his first feature length film.
If everything works out as planned, he intends to start in July of this year on the life of Noel Rosa, not his whole life, but rather the last two years, when he already knew that his life was ending due to illness. He says of the book, "The book is wonderful, although a bit hard to read, a thesis on Rosa and his time. Van Steen admits that he is a little worried about the challenge of making a feature film after "telling stories in 30 seconds," referring to his commercials. In an interview, he talks about the manner in which Swedish director, Ingmar Bergman, said he made his films as if he were constructing one of those great cathedrals.
Van Steen is concerned that he will leave something that his son can be proud of. It is Steen's intention to paint a picture of the artist living life with intensity, pressed for time. The question of what is better, living with intensity or for an extended period, is the thread that goes through the film.
Poeta da Vila Village's Poet, as Rosa is often called is about that. Set in 's Rio de Janeiro, it portrays a young man, 22 years of age. Noel lived a Bohemian lifestyle, fragile, drank a lot and did everything to excess. He contracted tuberculosis, which at the time had no possibility of cure, and that led to his early demise. Van Steen sees the parallel in our times in the premature deaths of many artists he, himself, has known from AIDS.
And the scenery, of course, Rio, the Marvelous City, Noel Rosa's city with its casinos, the fringe element in their white suits living their most glorious moments. It is this mythical Rio that Van Steen wants to depict. Two of them stand out in his life: Laurinda, the wife, and Ceci, the singer whom Noel met a week after his marriage and with whom he fell hopelessly in love. It won a prize for photography at the Festival de Gramado.
Van Steen feels that a film about music should be made with musicians. In addition to being an actor, he is a musician and performs in samba shows in Rio, playing and singing Noel Rosa. Arising from the great familiarity of Cristina Buarque with the universe of samba and from the experience of Henrique in more than 15 years with the Conjunto Coisas Nossas, Group of Our Things, the duo has put together a view of the many facets of "O Poeta da Vila.
The chronicler, who has not lost his current-day appeal, the humorist, the creator of parody, the anti-romantic, the innovator of form, and finally the genius, who in only 26 years and little more than 8 years of musical works, influenced forever Brazil's popular music. The above from the Kuarup website. When you speak of him, you quickly highlight his lyricist side, which is so worthy of admiration, but Noel created such beautiful and innovative melodies.
Those who set out to compare his work to that, which had been produced until then, will see that they are looking at a creator who revolutionized music.
To interpret Noel Rosa, here is Johnny Alf, another great creator and innovator of MPB, composer, singer, and pianist, who is known, among other things, as the precursor of bossa nova. Alongside Johnny Alf is arranger and pianist Leandro Braga, one of the great talents emerging in recent years, who has devoted himself to his harmonizing of extreme good taste to the essentially Brazilian musical language. It portrays, in song, dance, and comedy, Noel Rosa's life from the difficult start until the much too early death of tuberculosis.
One walks away with a feeling of elation, not at all the tragedy that his birth and short life might indicate. Brazilian musician. Retrieved November 30, Luso-Brazilian Review.
