Música Erudita Brasileira
The journal Textos do Brasil recently published an issue featuring classical music: #12 is entitled "Música Erudita Brasileira," which is available in PDF format. There are more than a few articles of interest to the Villa-Lobos fan who can make out at least some Portuguese. The article "Villa-Lobos Moderno e Nacional" by Jorge Coli discusses the transition in Villa's music from the modernism of the 1920s to the nationalism of the 30s.
