Opus Brasil Ensemble interpreta Villa-Lobos, Mehmari, Françaix

Besides the two important chamber works by Villa-Lobos - the Trio for oboe, clarinet and bassoon and the Fantasia Concertante for piano, clarinet and bassoon - this recent Brazilian release contains the Divertimento for oboe, clarinet and bassoon by Jean Françaix, and two pieces by André Mehmari: Choro breve and the Variações Villa-Lobos. The latter piece includes 15 variations on two themes from the 7th Bachianas Brasileiras.

The disc is available from Brazilian and European vendors as well as from Amazon (where it's also available - for US customers - on MP3).

In the meantime, you can hear the Mehmari Variations on Cultura FM , at 10:00 a.m. Sao Paulo time (9:00 a.m. EDT).
