Choros vol. 3

2008 has been a banner year for Villa-Lobos recordings; high on the list were the first two discs in the complete Choros series from BIS. In February they released the first volume, with Choros #5 (with Cristina Ortiz), Choros #7 and #11 (with John Neschling conducting the Sao Paul Symphony Orchestra). Then, in May 2008 came the second volume, with Fabio Zanon's Choros #1, and the SPSO musicians performing #4, #6, #8, and #9. (pictured below)

That leaves #2 (3 min.), #3 (4 min.), #10 (16 min.), and #12 (40 min.), and perhaps the two Choros Bis (10 min.), and the Introduction to Choros (10 min.). It adds up to a single well-filled disc.

It's good to see, then, that a new disc in the BIS series is coming soon. shows that Choros vol. 3 is due to be released on Dec. 9, 2008. There's no information yet on the BIS site, but I'll post information here as I receive it.

UPDATE: This didn't take long, thanks to the comment below from ничего (Thanks!). The new disc indeed contains #2, 3, 10, and 12, plus Choros (bis) and the Introduction to Choros, and it's available from I'm downloading as I type!
