Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Jill Gomez is outstanding in the popular Bachiannas brasileiras No. 5 and with the violinist, Peter Manning, in the Suite (1923). Villa-Lobos's favorite 'orchestra of cellos' produce sumptuous sounds in both the Bachianas brasileiras, and an added point of interest is the effective transcriptions for cellos of unrelated Bach preludes and fugues. A most attractive introduction to this most colorful of composers." -- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs "Jill Gomez is outstanding in the popular Bachiannas brasileiras No. 5 and with the violinist, Peter Manning, in the Suite (1923).
