Villa-Lobos, Raúl (1862-1899)

Villa-Lobos's father, an assistant librarian, writer, amateur cellist.


In 1897 Raúl Villa-Lobos published his naval history "A Revolta da Armada de 6 de septembro de 1893," under the pseudonym Epaminondas Villalba.  That was a name that Villa-Lobos used later in life as a pseudonym of his own.  His 1910 piano piece Tristorosa, for example, was published under the name Epaminondas Villalba, Filho (the word Filho meaning the same as our Jr.)

Raúl's book, by the way, is available on the web thanks to a Google scan of a book from the Harvard Library.
