VILLA-LOBOS: Chamber Music

Heitor Villa-Lobos put Brazilian music on the cultural map with an output that can be compared to the vastness and diversity of his own country. This survey of Villa-Lobos’ chamber works spans his entire career, from the attractively wistful Song of the Black Swan (1917) to the refined, and rarely-recorded Quintette instrumental (1957). The Duo for Violin and Viola (1946), as substantial a piece as those by Mozart and Martinů, includes one of the composer’s most haunting Adagios.
