Timeline

A timeline of Villa-Lobos's life.

- Timeline Introduction

Here is a Timeline of the life of Heitor Villa-Lobos, from his birth in 1887 to 1959. I'll be adding information to pages from each year, which will contain information about VL's life, his works, and the wider world of arts, letters, science and politics. This project begins on November 7, 2007. It should become a useful source by the end of the year.
