It has become almost commonplace to say that the musical output of Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1995) is as vast, varied and exuberant as the Amazon rain forest near which he grew. This is a picturesque analogy, but it certainly rings true: in the catalogue of Villa-Lobos, which comprises more than 700 works, we find an astonishing variety of forms, genres and modes of expression that bear witness to the composer's inquisitive and adventuresome spirit.
