Bachianas Brasileiras #2 & #5; Guitar Concerto; Amazonas (Apex)

Category:

This disc includes an odd combination of works, but it's welcome nevertheless.  This is especially because of the presence of one of Villa's great early works for orchestra: Amazonas.  The CD also includes two Bachianas Brasileiras and the Guitar Concerto, nicely performed here by guitarist Roberto Aussel, with strong support from the Lyon National Orchestra under Eugene Krivine.

Recorded at the Auditorium Maurice Ravel, Lyon, from 27 September to 2 October 1994

Nice to see this disc is now (July 2012) up at The Naxos Music Library

Reviews: 

Lionel Salter's very positive review in Gramophone: "Emmanuel Krivine and his fine Lyon orchestra present a vivid survey of the hugely productive Villa-Lobos's most popular works".
