Description

Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959) Heitor Villa-Lobos is one of the most important composers from the American continent. In addition to 17 string quartets, written between 1915 and 1917, his impressive oeuvre includes operas, cantatas, 12 symphonies, 14 choros, piano works, and pieces for various chamber music combinations. As an admirer of J.S. Bach, he endeavored to combine the architectural genius of the Leipzig cantor with exotic elements drawn from Brazilian folk music. Because of his concern over the lack of an infrastructure for classical music in his native land, he was also for many years a tireless founder of choirs and music schools.

Press reviews

Strad

(…) Even after an hour of this music there is no feeling of surfeit (…) (…) the recording is astutely balanced.

Volkskrant

(…) opzienbarend gezelschap van acht cellisten, dat in uitstraling niet onderdoet voor een kamerorkest (…)

Luister

(…) Virtuoze melodien, fenominale lyrische sfeer, ongekende sensualiteit, overweldigende sensibiliteit en obsessive ritmen maken deze cd tot een prachtige eenheid. (…) De zangeres zingt met een groot gevoel voor de vloeiende lijnen (…) (…) Het Cello Octet speelt buitengewoon kleurrijk en exact (…)

Concertradio

(…) De Spaanse sopraan Pilar Jurado (componiste, pianiste en musicologe) zingt heel goed.

Fanfare

(…) Gorgious tonal quality matched by their virtuosity. (…) (…) The sound quality is excellent, with ideal balance between instrument and voices. (…)
