Heitor Villa-Lobos

March 5, 1887 - November 17, 1959
born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, composed during the Modern period
Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959) was one of the greatest Brazilian composers and propelled Brazilian music into the modern era. Born in Rio, Villa-Lobos was self-taught and made his early living entertaining in barrios. In the 1920s, he moved to Paris and established his name with the rugged exoticism of works like the ballet Uirapurú. Villa-Lobos returned to Brazil to become an educator and cultural fixture. Villa-Lobos was prolific, producing 10 symphonies, 17 string quartets and many works in specialized forms such as the Chôros; his Bachianas Brasileiras Nos. 2 and 5 and many works for guitar remain among his most celebrated works. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

WOW!... This is stupendously nice.
I'd never hear this (Bachianas Brasileiras No. 7) before.
Caught it on my Alan Hovhaness station.

Amazing - hardly seems composed at all.
Did this song inspire I I Only Had a Brain from the Wizard of Oz?
Wow! :)

I hope that Brazil incorporates some of this music into the Olympics.

I'm in love!
I have introduced his music to others, who agree that his is among the most beautiful music ever composed.
what beautiful music I love ever thing I hear of his.
Pandora continues to please me with their well chosen selections. This amongst a growing majority of those offered has been added to my favorites.

Wonderful!
i love him
Villa-Lobos extracts music from life. His freedom, not linked to a formal training, makes his music unique, and reflective of his people, of his culture.
