São Paulo Samba DVD

A newly-released DVD with John Neschling conducting the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra includes an exciting mix of music by Latin American composers: Piazzolla, Ginastera, Mignone, and many others. I'm looking forward to watching Villa-Lobos's Choros #10 in a high quality video with surround-sound. This is one of Villa's greatest works, and Neschling's reviews for his Villa-Lobos performances with the Osesp have been universally positive.

I'm guessing that the performance included in this DVD is from last year's New Year's Eve concert at the Sala Villa-Lobos. That version is available on YouTube, and it's exciting:

The second part is available here.
