Orquesta Filarmónica de Buenos Aires
Orchestras are becoming more adventurous when it comes to programming Villa-Lobos works. It's not just about the Guitar Concerto, a couple of the Bachianas Brasileiras, and the Saxophone Fantasia any more.
Two great Villa-Lobos conductors, Enrique Arturo Diemecke and John Neschling, will be conducting some really interesting works with the Filarmónica de Buenos Aires this season.
Neschling has included Choros #06 in the program of his May 14, 2009 concert (along with Camargo Guarnieri's Encantamiento, and works by Haydn and Sibelius). Of course, Neschling is quite an expert on the Choros series, with his amazing recordings on the BIS label.
Diemecke, who is the Music Director in Buenos Aires, has included two works that are very rare in concert: Uirapuru on July 2, and The Discovery of Brazil on August 6.
