Discs | Vinicius de Moraes

Discs

This discography covers the musical trajectory of Vinicius de Moraes between 1956, the time of release of the record dedicated to the soundtrack of the play Orpheus of the Conception, and 1980, the year of his death and the last albums recorded with Toquinho.

The list of albums is comprised of the LPs in which Vinicius participates as a performer of his songs and poems, or songs of others. No recordings devoted to the composer's work without his presence as a performer, or compacts were included.

Vinicius’s discography has some specifics: There are albums devoted only to his poems, albums in partnership with other composers and singers of songs other than his, albums with many instrumental songs (soundtracks for theater, cinema and television), albums with a mix of many songs in just one track and several live albums. There is also a repetition of classic songs in different moments of his career. What the website features, is a selection of the main albums of his career, among some absences and specificities of a composer who allied partnerships, poetry and a life among the books and the stage.
All lyrics credited to Vinicius de Moraes and partners were taken from Vinicius de Moraes: Complete Poetry and Prose: One volume (org. Eucanaã Ferraz). Rio de Janeiro: Nova Aguilar, 2004.
