By the 1940s Heitor Villa-Lobos was widely recognised as Latin America’s greatest composer. Working in the United States gave him new perspectives, and his later symphonies move away from the folk influences and exotic effects of works written in the 1920s and 30s, such as the Bachianas Brasileiras, towards more concise, sometimes neo-classical, models. The Eighth and Ninth share a transparent lightness of touch while the Eleventh, described as a work of ‘immediate charm’, is the perfect introduction to the later work of Villa-Lobos.

Heitor Villa-Lobos is without a doubt Brazil's most famous composer and one of the great creative personalities of the twentieth century. His oeuvre is gigantic in its dimensions and perhaps can be compared only to that of Darius Milhaud, who, by the way, was a close friend of his. In any case, Villa-Lobos was the first to introduce the music of Latin America to the world's concert halls, and influences from this music do indeed abound in his oeuvre. cpo is now presenting the first complete recording of his colossal symphonic work complex in a boxed set of seven CDs at a special low price! The SWR Radio Symphony Orchestra under the American star conductor Carl St. Clair has taken on this enormous task, and the result can only be described as a bravura achievement. You can look forward to an orchestral tour de force operating on the highest level!

BIS Boss Robert von Bahr: We have been extremely lucky with this Box, even though it was "only" in CD quality. It would seem like that very many persons - like me - have found the readings of the São Paulo orchestra totally congenial when it comes to Brazil's great composer Villa-Lobos. The sound from their hall is also an important point. Anyway, the Complete Bachianas Brasileiras and Chôros (plus the Complete Guitar Music) are here for you, and in High-Resolution, which would make this Bundle the only chance you have of getting this in better-than-CD quality.

To fulfill a commission from the National Institute of Culture and Fine Arts of Venezuela for a work to be premiered by Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra at a 1966 festival in Caracas, Ginastera simply expanded much of his 1958 String Quartet No. 2 to get to his Concerto for Strings. He jettisoned the first of the quartet's five movements, shuffled the others, beefed up the instrumentation, and, in places, composed additional passages……

The works of some composers, like Villa-Lobos, do not receive the attention they deserve. This double CD with the five piano concertos by Villa-Lobos is sheer delight. The music is romantic and original. The performance of the Royal Philarmonic Orchestra, under Miguel Gomez-Martinez, is more than good. The pianist, Cristina Ortiz, plays in a flawless manner, well integrated with the orchestra. The sound quality of the recording is excellent.
