Diapason, November 2009

This splendid image is from the "Alma Brasileira", the Villa-Lobos story by Francois Laurent in the November 2009 issue of Diapason magazine (p. 56-61). I don't remember seeing this picture before, though it certainly evokes one side of Villa's personality. Laurent knows the Villa-Lobos discography really, really well. His "indispensable" picks on CD:
  • Villa-Lobos par lui-meme
  • The Cuarteto Latinoamericano complete String Quartets
  • The BIS complete Bachianas Brasileiras and Choros
  • Anna Stella Schic's complete piano music
  • Carl St. Clair's complete Symphonies on cpo
