Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Villa-Lobos Trio emphasizes the colorful, South American world of sound in its work. The central composers in this regard are of course, Heitor Villa- Lobos and Astor Piazzolla. The ensemble, which lives in Vienna, was founded by Brazilian pianist Rosângela Antunes. It has traveled to Kenya, Jordan and the USA, and sees itself as an ambassador and intermediary between the various cultures. Villa-Lobos’s Piano Trio No. 1 was written in 1911. As the young composer’s first large-format work, it was an important step in his creative life. The trio demonstrates Villa-Lobos’s intensive occupation with European art music and was part of his debut concert as a composer.

Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas, or “The four
Read more seasons in Buenos Aires”, was written by Astor Piazzolla for the quintet that he founded in 1960, several years after he had returned home from Europe, where he had studied with Nadia Boulanger. The work is a perfect example of fusion between the Tango Argentino and European classical music and jazz. This style would go down in music history as the Tango Nuevo and make its creator more popular than ever.

In his Yumba-Verwandlung, written for the Villa- Lobos Trio, composer, conductor and music researcher Lucio Bruno-Videla, born in 1968, has tried to transform the tango into a 21st-century style. It is based on the well known Tango La Yumba by Osvaldo Pugliese.
