Villa-Lobos: Bachianas Brasileiras
Heitor Villa-Lobos’ colorful and immediately ear-catching music is full of the rhythms and sounds of Brazil. The haunting soprano theme of the fifth “Bachianas Brasileiras” is one of the best-known melodies of all time, and the carnival atmosphere at the end of “Momoprecóce” is suffused with Brazilian sunshine.
