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 ever 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 Sao Paulo are both idiomatic and expertly played.This box set includes the following Naxos Villa-Lobos series releases:8573829
