From the recording Diálogos Duo/Choro Tributes
This AABBACCA choro "The Mandolin Knows All" is dedicated to the brilliant mandolinist Luperce Miranda (1904-77). Too often overlooked by those more familiar with Jacob do Bandolim's work, Miranda was more from the Neapolitan school of playing, whose phrasing is less elastic than Jacob's. He penned dozens of choros and made an impressive comeback towards the end of his life. The tonal scheme of the three thematic sections is quite traditional, using descending diatonic thirds (Cma, Ami, Fma).
