Villa-Lobos was one of the most prolific of all 20th-century composers. The works on this seventh volume of the complete piano works show the multilayered nature of Villa-Lobos’s idiom, which is as exuberant as the Brazilian landscape that inspired him so often.

Amazonas, subtitled ‘Brazilian Indian ballet’, is based on indigenous themes that were embedded in the texture, and innovatively varied and transformed through sophisticated harmonic and rhythmic experiments. Even today Amazonas remains startling for its adventurous musical language.

Several of the shorter pieces on this disc exist only in manuscript, and receive here their world première recording.

Gramophone Magazine

February 2009

“There are four world premiere recordings on this disc, some of them still in manuscript. Naxos's sound is exemplary, James Melo's notes more than informative and, most of all, Sonia Rubinsky's playing is a marvel of power, grace and fluency.”
