|Abstract:||ABSTRACT Henrique Oswald (1852−1931) was a late romantic Brazilian composer, respected in life, but who gradually fell into disregard after his death. He lived for 35 years in Europe and there developed his compositional style, returning in his 50s to a country very different from that which he left as a 16 year old. The late disregard was a result of the ascendency of the nationalist/modernist movement which rose in influence after the Week of Modern Art in 1922. Containing elements of French impressionism, using well-defined German forms, with some curious and intriguing Brazilian rhythmic and melodic characteristics, Oswald’s Sinfonia Opus 43 is a cosmopolitan masterpiece. For many years this work remained virtually unknown and in manuscript format until an attempt to edit it was made in 2002 by the Projeto Memória Musical Brasileira (FUNARTE).1 Containing many mistakes and based in only one manuscript this edition proved not to be trustworthy. The need for an authoritative critical edition was clear and required a new approach, systematically and academically oriented and based on all the available primary sources, thus producing a clear critical edition and critical commentaries which articulates and deepens into the primary sources. With systematic examination of the manuscripts Oswald’s handwriting was differentiated from the copyists, thus allowing Oswald’s intentions to be given precedence. With this study Oswald’s Sinfonia Opus 43 becomes available to a greater audience, firstly by providing an authoritative critical edition suitable for performance, and secondly aligning itself with the work of other scholars such as José Eduardo Martins, Eduardo Monteiro, Maria 1 National Foundation of the Arts Alice Volpe and Andre Cardoso, who sought a clearer understanding of Brazilian romantic composers outside of the modernist/nationalist ideology.|
