Rediscovered Villa-Lobos scores

Hard on the heels of the newly-discovered Mozart scores comes the news about previously unknown Villa-Lobos works in Rio de Janeiro. They were discovered in the library of the Escola de Música da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ).

These aren't new Bachianas Brasileiras, though (or the missing Choros or Symphony), but Villa-Lobos's orchestration of four pieces by the French composer Guy Ropartz (1864-1955). Still, it would be nice to hear these, or at least learn more about them. The full story is here.
