Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Brazilian Guitar Quartet has done it again. Their warm, disciplined energy and mind-boggling technical prowess is directed this time at the music of Villa-Lobos. As always, their own arrangements are beautifully crafted. The two string quartets that are included (numbers 5 and 12) are done with the kind of taste and understanding that makes these players so completely convincing. An atmospheric wave of rhythm and color. Fabulous!" -- WGBH
