One of Brazil’s most acclaimed and versatile musicians, Daniel Wolff is a Bachelor of Music from the Uruguayan University in Montevidéo. Wolff was later awarded full scholarships from the Brazilian government to obtain the Master of Music and Doctor of Music degrees from New York’s prestigious Manhattan School of Music, where he was given the Helen Cohn Award for outstanding achievement. He became thus the first Brazilian to receive a doctorate in guitar performance.
A Professor of Music at the Brazilian Federal University (UFRGS), where he created the Master of Music Degree in Guitar Performance, he is in constant demand to teach in universities and music festivals in the United States, Germany, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina.
Winner of guitar competitions in Brazil and the United States, he has performed widely in Europe, South America and the United States, where he appeared at New York’s Carnegie Recital Hall. His main guitar teachers were Eduardo Fernández, Abel Carlevaro and Manuel Barrueco.
As an arranger and composer, he had his works performed and recorded by orchestras and chamber ensembles in Brazil, Argentina, Italy, Germany, England and the United States. His arrangements have been recorded by a variety of artists, culminating in a Grammy Award and the Açorianos Prize for best arranger. He has also written various prize-winning film scores.
His CD Concerto à Brasileira, featuring Brazilian works for guitar and orchestra, received warm reviews worldwide, plus three entries for the Grammy Awards. He later released Cantilena (with cellist Rodrigo Alquati) and The Right Seasons, where he performs his arrangements of Thiago de Mello’s works along with members of the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra.

Lyrics

Lunch Talk

Written By: Sérgio Napp & Daniel Wolff

Figo em calda, vinho e pão
grão de bico, arroz de rapa
jaca, salsa
e suco de caju
mas nada sacia, não me sacia

o não feito
o não impresso
o não dito
o não amado
o que não encaixa
o que não se admite
mais do que tudo
o que me sacia
é o não

Rendeiro Baião de Mim

Written By: Felipe Azevedo

Deixa o amor me levar
Rendeiro baião de mim
Guia de luz, dedilhar
Cego faiscando um sim
Na boca do escarcéu
Mirabolante, colorida
Vida bruta, ardida
Quente noite a me roçar
Arrepiante por um triz

Deixa o amor me guardar
Escorregando feliz
Vendo o sertão inundar
O rio no mar explodir
E a onda bruta faceira
Pouco a pouco a esculpir
O corpo, a carne fagueira
Doce, brejeira
Ai se me dá
Assim, assim...

Deixa o amor me beijar
Escorregando feliz
Vendo o sertão desbravar
O rio no mar explodir
E a onda bruta faceira
Pouco a pouco a esculpir
O corpo, a carne fagueira
Doce, brejeira
Ai se me dá
Assim, assim...

A noite bruta
Na cambraia
A cauda do boi-bumbá
Meu coração
Bicho–do–mato
Deixa o amor me levar

Canção

CANÇÃO (Daniel Wolff - Sérgio Napp)

Basta que me cantes
uma canção
como quem a alma
desvela aos ventos

no entardecer eu fui aquele
a quem disseste, um dia
vem

e o que eu faço
diante dos teus olhos
de onde os pássaros do amor
se dispersaram?

mas se debruças teu olhar
pela canção
como quem busca um refúgio na paixão
encontrarás o meu amor
descobrirás um coração
a desfazer-se em solidão

havia festa em teu amor
e desta festa eu quero é mais
amor eu quero, eu quero sempre,
muito mais.

Basta que me cantes
uma canção
como quem a alma
desvela aos ventos

no entardecer eu fui aquele
a quem disseste, um dia
vem

havia festa
amor e desta festa
eu quero sempre
eu quero muito, muito mais
