Music of Villa-Lobos

13 songsThis is a really fine record, particularly as it does not include the ubiquitous Bachiana Brasileira No. 2, which will be the only exposure that many people have to these extraordinary “fusion” pieces in which the composer marries forms of Brazilian folk music with those of the J.S. Bach. Of course, No. 5 is even more famous than No. 2, but it’s a vocal work in two movements scored for soprano and eight cellos. The first movement is well known, but the second–a zippy little dance–is often omitted, making hash of the composer’s intentions. All of this music is well worth knowing, especially in performances as vital and characterful as these. Super. –David Hurwitz
