About

Heitor Villa-Lobos’ mother dismissed the guitar as “an instrument played by scoundrels”, but his earliest surviving work, Dime perché, comes from a time when he was composing almost exclusively on this instrument.

By completing his unfinished Valsa Concerto No.2, Andrea Bissoli brings to life the subject of a notorious anecdote between Segovia and Miguel Llobet, and the Sexteto místico echoes Brazilian street band sounds, anticipating Villa-Lobos’ 'new form' of the mystical Choros.

The intimate serenade Canção do Amor is from his soundtrack for the film Green Mansions.
