VILLA-LOBOS, H.: Symphonies (Complete) (São Paulo Symphony, Karabtchevsky) (6-CD Box Set)

Heitor Villa-Lobos has been described as ‘the single most significant creative figure in 20th-century Brazilian art music’. The eleven symphonies—the enigmatic Symphony No. 5 has never been found and may not even have been written—range from the two earliest, conceived in a broadly central Central European tradition, to the final Symphony No. 12 which is notable for its explosive energy, harmonic richness and rhythmic vitality. Every aspect of Villa-Lobos’s remarkable inspiration is represented in these works, with Brazilian national rhythms and extremes of ambition in terms of scale and dramatic content, alongside neo-Classical transparency and lyrical charm. These critically acclaimed performances from São Paulo are both idiomatic and expertly played.
