Rádio UOL

Here is something really, really cool. Rádio UOL from Brazil gives you access to some fine recordings of Villa-Lobos. When you click on the link above, you'll get a list of VL albums. Click on the little page to the left of each album, to get a list of tracks:

Then click on the track you want to hear, or OUVIR TODAS AS MÚSICAS, at the bottom, to hear the whole album. The album above, by the way, is As Cirandas De Villa-Lobos, by pianist
Homero De Magalhães.

I also have enjoyed listening to the Three Cello Concertos, with the Orquestra Sinfõnica de Galícia, cellist Antônio Meneses, and conductor Víctor Pablo Pérez. These are beautiful pieces, not very well known.

There's lots more to explore - not the least of which would be the popular music of Brazil. Thanks to UOL!
