A work that definitely enriches the world's literature for 3 horns and trombone....

This piece makes reference to the importance of wind instruments in the choro-ensemble, though Prof. Tarasti notes that the music Villa-Lobos heard in Paris earlier in the decade (Poulenc, Krenek, Busoni, Milhaud, jazz) was likely in Villa's mind as well.

3 horns & 1 trombone
