GRAMOPHONE EDITOR'S CHOICE

"To anyone who heard Gustavo Dudamel's "Fiesta" album, this may seem like a first cousin, or perhaps a wise uncle. Villa-Lobos is a towering figure in Brazilian music, and these works magisterially seem to channel an entire culture. John Neschling and his São Paulo players catch the scale, the pulse and the heat of these Choros. I can't wait for the rest of this excellent series."
(Gramophone)

After a highly acclaimed 3-disc traversal of Villa-Lobos' 9 Bachianas Brasileiras, the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra (OSESP) takes on the Choros by the same composer, in a cycle supervised by the orchestra's artistic director John Neschling. In the Choros, composed between 1920 and 1929, Villa-Lobos' point of departure is the Brazilian popular genre called choro, and he described his Choros as a synthesis of 'the different modalities of indigenous and popular Brazilian music', adding that the word 'serenade' gives an approximate idea of what Choros is. This vagueness was probably intentional - Villa-Lobos wanted to catch the improvisatory aspect of the genre, and as a result the works are very varied. The cycle includes brief solo pieces, chamber settings and full-length works for large symphony orchestra, with or without solo instruments or choir, as exemplified by the first volume of this series, released in February 2008. This received a Diapason d'or in the French magazine Diapason, and a review that described the performance of No.7 - for seven players - 'a lesson in agogic freedom' and the monumental No.11 - for piano and orchestra - 'a master-piece that opens up onto an almost infinite acoustic universe', applauding the 'extraordinary interpretation' by Cristina Ortiz and the orchestra. Volume 2 includes the first of the Choros, for solo guitar, as well as No.4 for three horns & trombone, but also three large-scale orchestral works, adding further facets to this fascinating and kaleidoscopic cycle.
