Saudade da Juventude

Category:

A "symphonic divertimento", based on tunes from the Guia pratico. The score says "1st Suite", but as is so common with Villa-Lobos, that doesn't imply that there's a 2nd (because there isn't).

  1. Vida Formosa
  2. Ó Ciranda, Ó Cirandinha
  3. A Gatinha Parda
  4. Ó Sim
  5. Mando Tiro, Tiro Lá
  6. Condessa
  7. Nesta Rua
  8. A Cotia
  9. Na Corda da Viola
  10. De Flor em Flor

From the New York Philharmonic Digital Archives, the composer's program notes:

O Cor Jesu

A short (less than a minute) choral gem from volume 1 of Musica Sacra

Preludios for Cello & Piano (transcriptions of Bach Preludes)

Preludes #8 (BWV 852) and #14 (BWV 883) from the Well Tempered Clavier

These two transcriptions for cello & piano were written for performances in the Excurção Villa-Lobos in rural Sao Paulo State in 1930-31.

Valsa concerto #2

Category:

valsaconcerto

This is one of Villa-Lobos's very first compositions to survive. The manuscript ("Rio, 1904") indicates that this is "op. 8". The work isn't complete, and seems to exist only in manuscript form (in the Museu Villa-Lobos).

O Canto do Pajé

Category:

A short piece for band, which was also arranged by Villa-Lobos for four-part female chorus.  It's referred to on the score as a "Marcha-Rancho".
