AllMusic Review by

Wagner Tiso is a gifted and competent composer/arranger/pianist and longtime main arranger for Milton Nascimento's albums, and also his partner in several successful compositions, like "Coração de Estudante" and "Caso de Amor" (both included here). This compilation focuses on his instrumental work of the 1980s, interpreting his originals and adaptations for other composers' songs. He is not a jazz artist, and his instrumental work follows the instrumental pop line, even if much more elaborate than the average release in that style, with frequent quotations from erudite music and influences of Brazilian music. Includes Debussy's "Le Petit Négre," Zé do Norte's "Mulher Rendeira" (with Egberto Gismonti), and other 16 songs.
