Description:

Manuel Barrueco performs Villa-Lobos' Guitar Concerto with the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra and Giancarlo Guerrero conducting. This is the only guitar piece on the CD. 

Also on the recording: Sexteto Mistico, Quinteto Instrumental, and Concerto for Harmonica, performed by Jose Staneck.

 

The concertos and chamber works on this album show Villa-Lobos’s unceasing enthusiasm for new colours and sonorities in his music. The Concerto for Guitar and Small Orchestra was his last work for the instrument and written for Segovia. A cornerstone of the repertoire, it contains soaring melodies and rhythmic vitality couched in virtuosic writing.
