Heitor Villa-Lobos - Chôros no. 11



This kaleidoscopic, epic work, a bit like a piano concerto and symphony colliding, describes Brazil from many different angles – landscape, people, colours, street sounds, wildlife, culture. If you know Messiaen´s Turangalîla-Symphonie, you might also like this.

This is a live performance from 1992, rebroadcast a few months ago on Rádio Cultura FM. There are occasional tape quality issues, but nothing too serious;

hmm ... getting the dreaded"can only be DLed by uploader" message from RS which sort of kills the sharing process ;)

Admittedly, RS has a peculiar notion of "sharing".
