Experiencing Villa-Lobos: Conference hosted by Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond VA.

A Report on the Conference by Lee Boyd

On Thursday March 27, 2008 an afternoon reception allowed participants and guests to get acquainted. A Brazilian voice and guitar duo played and sang choros, sambas, and bossa nova selections while people circulated through the rooms of a lovely old mansion.

In the evening the keynote address was given by Grayson Wagstaff, who detailed the immense influence brought to bear on the Library of Congress Music Division by Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge, promoting live performances, commissioning music, purchasing instruments and scores, and sponsoring publications. In particular, the complicated process by which a piece by Villa-Lobos was proposed, actually commissioned, and finally received was detailed.
