This multi-disc set of instrumental music offers masterful performances of his two great nationalistic series, the <i>Choros</i> and the <i>Bachianas Brasileiras</i>. The Brazilian musicians playing here feel the music deeply, and speak it fluently. A final disc is devoted to his complete works for solo guitar - exquisitely performed.<br /><br /></p> Fri, 11 Mar 2011 18:50:00 +0000 Mark Pinto 2505 at http://wrti.org Mark Pinto Recommends...
