Orquestra Filarmônica de Minas Gerais

Brazilian orchestras are now announcing their 2009 season programs. The Orquestra Filarmônica de Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte has a full slate of Villa-Lobos works coming up in the Ano Villa-Lobos, including:
  • Bachianas Brasileiras #7 in March
  • Bachianas Brasileiras #9 in June
  • A Floresta do Amazonas in July
  • Bachianas Brasileiras #3 (with Cristina Ortiz) and Choros #06 in August
  • The Guitar Concerto (with Fabio Zanon) in September
  • Uirapuru in November
That's a pretty good cross-section of Villa-Lobos's greatest music, with some world class soloists under the direction of Isaac Karabtchevsky, Ira Levin, and Music Director Fabio Mechetti.
