The main objective of this research is to observe the elements of contemporary classic music implemented by Arrigo Barnabé in his work which consist of popular Brazilian music lineup. For this, two works that correspond to different phases of the composer's career will be analyzed. The first, refers to his debut album Clara Crocodilo (1982) called "Sabor de Veneno". In it we will observe the key elements that Arrigo used to break the standards that were then valid in our MPB, besides observing those of which he maintained so that such music was not decharacterized. Already the second one is inserted in its fourth album, Gigante Negão (1994), and it is called "Tumulto". In this song we will see if there was any insertion, regression or stagnation of the contemporary and serial elements used and enjoyed by Arrigo Barnabé in his debut album, besides observing if there are new compositional techniques or new resources of sounds. For this research gets consolidated, first of all, it will be observed characteristics of songs present in the Brazilian popular universe, and in its varied genres, in addition to songs present in the contemporary scholar universe. All this to say that the analysis and comparison of both Arrigo's songs are based not only on one side, but rather have an end in themselves, thus enabling and guaranteeing a compositional analysis and not, merely, a gender analysis.
