Notes and Editorial Reviews

Heitor Villa-Lobos was instrumental in developing a national Brazilian musical culture, writing in a wide variety of forms. Composed in 1954 for the 400th anniversary of the founding of São Paulo, Ameríndia is the composer’s largest symphony. Effectively a hybrid symphony and oratorio for soloists, chorus and orchestra, it is memorable for its stylistic variety and breadth, drawing on many different sources of Brazilian music. This recording is based on a newly revised edition made by Editora Criadores do Brasil (the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra’s publishing house) in collaboration with the Academia Brasileira de Música.

 A little bit of everything January 3, 2015 By T. Vawter (Bellingham, WA) See All My Reviews "This symphony/sonata is accurately described as a collection of disparate sources. Having heard a couple of pieces from it that peaked some interest, I decided to give it a try. I have enjoyed other work by Villa-Lobos but I found Symphony 10 disconcerting with orchestral and choral pieces never seeming a coherent whole for me. Was worth a try." Report Abuse
