Mandú Çárárá in Caracas
I normally don't post shaky web-cam YouTube videos here at The Villa-Lobos Magazine, but this is really exceptional.
Mandú Çárárá is probably the greatest Villa-Lobos work that nobody knows. It's a Secular Cantata from 1939 which is unavailable on CD. This exciting performance is from last weekend's final performance of the 4th annual Festival Villa-Lobos in Caracas. Roberto Tibiriça conducts the amazing Sinfónica de la Juventud Venezolana Simón Bolívar & Coro Sinfónico Juvenil de Venezuela. I'm hoping that the other major work from that concert (Symphony #04) shows up on YouTube soon.
