Robert Bonfiglio plays the Harmonica Concerto

Robert Bonfiglio is an amazing advocate for Villa-Lobos; he's performed the Harmonica Concerto around the world many, many times. You can listen to all three movements of this work at YouTube, taken from a live concert with the Gewandhaus Orchestra conducted by Fabio Luisi. The first movement is here, the second movement is here, and the third movement, with pictures from Bonfiglio's September 2009 visit to the famous Manaus Opera House, is below:

Robert has a couple of performances of the Harmonica Concerto coming up in the New Year: with the the Galicia Symphony, conducted by Enrique Diemecke, on January 4th; and with the Rockford Symphony, conducted by Steven Larsen, on January 16th.
